I've been getting back on the fiction writing wagon of late, but I haven't been neglecting my folk writing duties. I was fortunate enough to witness the first Homegrown Festival at The Met in Bury, which will grow into a fully fledged English Folk Expo next year. I also reviewed it for Spiral Earth.

I've also just had the privilege of reviewing Lauren McCormick's debut album, On Bluestockings, for the forthcoming issue of EDS, and I've just interviewed Hugh Crabtree from Feast of Fiddles about their 20th anniversary album and tour in 2013.
