Tales from the Rails – ever further south in seven shows

“Welcome to Switzerland”, the train conductor announced as we pulled into a station that for all I knew could have been yet another stop in South Germany. I had eagerly awaited the little, crooked man behind the coffee trolly to…

Tales from the Rails - belated thanks, harps, sitars and responsibilites

I’ve played 19 shows so far on the ‘Seeing You’ tour and have not yet managed to write a single blog post. Although there are many tales to tell, there just hasn’t been enough time to process, reflect and share….

Tales from the Rails - In Place of War and LIMFestival

  I’m trading Beatles-bafoonery for Carnival-chaos. This packed, bank holiday coach I’m on is taking me back to London, where I’ll have to fight my way through the Notting Hill Carnival to get back home to Shepherd’s Bush. I’ve just…

Germany Castle Tour - de Bastion to the bastions

Tales from the Rails - camera's rolling and all the surprises

I’m in a fairy tale again. This time a proper Hans Christian Anderson woodland wonder, just without the freaky shit and with a happier ending. I’m in Kiel in the middle of a forest, but more to that later. Last…

Tales from the Rails - Arrivals, Departures and the Footsteps Ahead

I’m at the usual suspect coffee chain in Brussels Nord station with an hour to spare before my train departs to Cologne. It’s day seven of the tour with eight shows behind me and three more to go before I…

Tales from the Rails (Amsterdam) - head first into the multiverse

  I knew Amsterdam was going to be an adventure. I was not prepared to dive headfirst into one fairytale to another. That’s a lie, I’m always prepared for that. I was not, however, prepared for navigating my way around…
