Song of the South
'Song of the South' is the working title for a new musical project I have started, aiming to collect, record, perform and maybe even write songs linked to South London locations. My vision is of a floating pool of collaborators chipping in for the odd song or two, gradually building up to a body of work. As a first small step I performed a couple of songs at the Telegraph Hill Festival Blues Night on 25 March at Page Two in Nunhead. I started off with Georgie, a poaching ballad set in Shooters Hill (or other locations, depending on the version), and then accompanied by Juleigh sang modern folk classic The Only Living Boy in New Cross. If you are interested in participating in this project let me know.
