Went to see Grace and Edwyn at Waterstones Manchester last night. What a double-act. If you can go to one of the other readings, go. It's very entertaining/inspirational/moving/funny... all that human stuff.

Couldn`t agree more. Thank you Grace and Edwyn for a fantastic evening. It was lovely to hear Edwyn sing `Home again` and `Poor Old Soul` and to hear Grace read from the book with lots of wise cracks from both sides! Any emotional types may need to take some hankies.

Also, thanks to the guys in front of me in the book-signing queue who let me barge in front of them so I could get the last train home.

Roll on Edinburgh...can`t wait.
It's a must see, for sure! Grace and Edwyn work so well together and it was a joy to hear Grace read and a delight to hear Edwyn's laugh (so often!) as well as sing. And, yes, I scrabbled for my hankies! Am also going to see Edwyn in Edinburgh next month - will be brilliant!

Got a ticket for Glasgow Waterstones tonight, wasn't going to go as
money has become very tight and I'm 90 miles from Glasgow......
but all the comments about the signings are making it very tempting.....
Grace and Edwyn are doing a signing in Edinburgh on 22/08 if you don`t make Glasgow.
....at World Power Books at 1.00pm. (Won`t let me edit my previous comment).
Matt - I urge you to go you won't regret, I went to the one in Manchester, got stuck in bad weather and traffic queues on the M62, paid a fortune at the car park and was late for the reading. They'd already started - didn't want to walk in front of them, so stood near the door, were the only thing I could see was Edwyn's orange trainers. But it was worth all that to listen to them, funny, moving and uplifting and wee chat and a photo at the booksigning - fantastic - a couple of charmers, they make a great double act.

Great to hear Edwyn will be back playing in Manchester in October.
Hi Robin, Grace mentioned it at the reading, said it was to be at the Deaf Institute, same place he played at for the Heavenly In The City gig last year, said they'd only just finalised it the day before.
Keep a look out at http://www.thedeafinstitute.co.uk/calendar it's not up yet.
I think I was sat on the same row as you Julie - 2nd from the front. I was the speccy girl with a stripey skirt, dark hair. I was scabbling about for my hankie when Edwyn sang `Home Again`. I think you may have been doing the same! It got very dusty in there didn`t it?!

Sounds like you had a great time Duncan. Unfortunately I didn't get there tonight, too many things conspiring
against me making it I'm afraid.....

Made it to the Glasgow event tonight and had a ball. Grace & Edwyn were great company, haven't laughed so much in a long time. Many wonderful stories, truly heart-warming stuff. Having Edwyn sing was an unexpected treat - and once he started he didn't seem to want to stop! And we didn't want him to either. Can't wait to get stuck into the book. Well done everyone.

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue

Thanks

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
