We hope this blog update finds you well and easing yourself gently into a rather mild festive season. We've got just one more gig left this year and have been enjoying a bit of a rest over the last few weeks. It's been a real flurry of activity with the album - getting artwork sorted and finishing a new songbook too (which is going to be available in print this time!). We can't wait to share it all with you next year!
We wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped to lobby the guys over at BBC Radio 2 about the release of our single. We've not had R2 airplay yet - but we were thrilled to have been played on BBC Radio 3 the other week, which was fantastic! We're still keeping our fingers crossed for airplay on The Folk Show, so if you haven't yet - you could make our Christmas by emailing email@example.com and telling them why you think they should be playing our music!
Talking of Christmas...
There's nothing quite like getting some amazing new music in your stocking! :) You can buy all of the (small, but perfectly formed!) Ninebarrow back-catalogue from our website, and provided you order before the 18th December, it'll arrive with you before the big day. You'll also receive a warm fuzzy feeling free of charge, knowing you're helping to support independent, grass roots music! :D
We're keeping things a little quiet between now and the end of March, as we build up to our album launch tour, although we've got a few lovely shows between now and then. Check out all the dates on our gigs page. In particular - for those in the south - we wanted to mention our album launch concert at Lighthouse Poole on the 26th March. It's going to be a cracking evening, with support for Devon's finest: Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll, who will also be joining some other fantastic musicians to create a 'Releasing the Leaves' string section with double bass, cello, viola and violin. Grab tickets here - but don't wait too long, as they're going fast!
It's a little early, but while we've got the opportunity, we'll wish you a fantastic festive season and all the very best for 2016!
