One from the archive...

Here's version of 'God Bless The Child' from 2010, performed with legendary bass player Herbie Flowers, the wonderful Malcolm Mortimore on drums, and the genius that is Mark Edwards on piano; at the Ropetackle Theatre, Shoreham. What a privilege!

Song For 'Love Plémont' Campaign *UPDATE

UPDATE:

On 13/12/12 The States Of Jersey voted against buying the headland and returning it to nature, by 24 votes to 25. The land is now due for residential development by Plemont Estates Ltd.

Statement from Badlabecques:

J'sommes au m'sespére pouor Pliémont! We're gutted about Plemont! :( Lots of love to everyone who worked so hard to protect our precious coastline, especially The National Trust for Jersey. Let's hope the battle has at least raised the consciousness of our environment enough to make sure Jersey doesn't make the same mistakes again...

My new project: Badlabecques!

So it looks like I'm staying in Jersey for a little while...

Badlabecques are my brand new Jersey-based 8 piece pop folk band who sing in our indigenous language - Jèrriais. Founded by yours truly in collaboration with L'Office de Jèrriais, we are attempting to breathe new life into traditional folk songs with upbeat pop and folk influences from around the world. It's exciting, quirky, danceable Jèrriais magic!
