I've decided to retire from solo touring at the end of 2020. I plan to
continue making music after that... writing, producing, playing
sessions, gigging with Raggedy Ass, 3 Boxes, The Black'edds etc.
I'm open to any future projects that catch my interest... but I don't
want to spend any more afternoons alone in the car in never ending
traffic jams!

I'm going to try and make 2020 pretty special... we're currently
booking as many shows as we can shoehorn into the year. Keep an
eye on the
Tour Dates page for updates.

I'm also planning to release a new CD every month throughout the
year. The series starts with "One Year", an almanac of songs about
each month of the year. Subsequent months will see a rock and roll
album, an album of guitar instrumentals, a Rockabilly record,
an album featuring many of my favourite guitar players, an album of
songs about the north of England, an album of love songs.... check
back often for updates.

You'll be able to buy these CDs in the usual ways... at record
stores (if you can find one) and from Amazon and other
online outlets. If you want the digital version, go to iTunes, Amazon
etc. And If you really want to hear music that sounded pretty
decent in the mastering room sound like it's coming through the
walls from next door, no doubt you'll be able to stream the stuff from

I can also supply CDs by mail order. Needless to say, I make
most money per sale that way! If this option appeals, drop me
email and I'll make it happen.

Thanks for your support over the last 40 years... and I hope to see
you somewhere down the road in 2020!
