The CD which I’ve recorded and Produced with Roy Dodds, consists of 15 brand new songs I’ve written from stories collected on recent rural touring around England. They include topics such as the real Dick Turpin: ‘Lizzie Loved a Highwayman’; The Tragedy of the two young lovers from Bowes, Yorkshire who died of broken hearts: ‘Martha Went Down to The Well’; ‘And Jesus Wept’, The story of Private Harry Farr who last year became the first 1st World War Soldier executed for ‘desertion’ to receive a pardon; ‘Valentine’, a song about the soldier Matty Hull who was shot by Americans in Afghanistan by so called ‘friendly fire’; ‘William Brewster Dreams of America’, about the original Pilgrim Father’s flight to The New World, with his children Patience, Fear, Love, Wrassling & John; and so on.
See you soon, x Reg.
