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.

The Aberdeen event was, indeed, superb. Tickets are now bought for the Leomn Tree on the 18th but where can I find the other dates, a few days dotting around the highlands following Edwyn sounds like a great way to pass a few days in October.
Hello. This is my first post. I was at the book reading venue in Aberdeen (I was the one that asked about Stuart Adamson towards the end of the book signing queue.)

A truly inspirational human being, I look forward to seeing you in October when you take your music to the Lemon Tree. Thanks to both of you for a brilliant evening.
Yes, that was me! And I remember you, too. I'm just pleased I wasn't on the very front row during the hankie moment! When are you seeing him in Edinburgh? I have a ticket for the Friday. J

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?!

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!
Its a shame that this book tour is no longer going. I'd have loved to have seen Edwyn & Grace talking about the book together (and get my book signned of course.) I wonder if i should take a copy to the gig at Liverpool catherdral, on the 13th in the hope i might get a chance to ask them to sign it there? Does anyone reckon its worth trying?
best regards.

All three (Will too) very kindly signed mine last night at Brighton. I think the fact I'd come from France for the gig caused a chuckle. I'll be chuckling when I see them again in Paris later this month.
Cheers for letting me know. Ill take along my copy of the book and have a try then.
regards
Daz
Both Grace and Edwyn kindly signed my copy last night after the Preston gig. I bought the book at the merchandise table.

An absolutely fantastic book.  As usual, I haven't started my xmas shopping, but now I know what to get everyone.  Easy.

Nice. Thanks for sharing this thing!

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…

Just seen on amazon "some British birds" book selling for over £100.00 how ridiculous! Not because the book isn't good but because people are such greedy B******s.
