I spoke to over 2000 children across 21 libraries, (and one art gallery) answered roughly four hundred questions (not an ...

Knights of the Borrowed Dark – Written by… Me, Performed by… Me.

Knights of the Borrowed Dark – Written by… Me, Performed by… Me.

I've been dying to reveal this properly for ages.About a month ago, in the midst of Hay and Inisheer and Listowel and a bunch of other amazing gigs, I snuck off to London to spend three days in the ID Audio studio. They were super nice, and very accommodating, and after two and a half days (and fo ...

The Class & The Spurious

I've been meaning to write a blog about KOTBD, being on tour, exhaustion, loveliness, crisps and general miscreance for a while now, but I haven't had time, mainly because of KOTBD, being on tour, exhaustion, loveliness and crisps.

Good(reads) Intentions

Categories: Stuff & Things
