During the last twenty odd years I have written & recorded several memorable love songs! I am normally a storyteller but a good love song does seem to hit the spot with the fans. I have recorded several over the years that have done just that, and as you have requested here they all are finally all on the one album. A wonderful collection just for all the Mums & those who think that love is special! And just as a treat there are two brand new songs in this collection- I Won't Cry- and (Lookin for Love) both quite different , but both real country songs. Also a special bonus the duet with Alan Caswell, Sorry if I'm Dancing Too Close-which was a finalist way back in 1987- (pictured on right). and Gold Guitar winner -Sarah's Memory- Best Female Vocal 1991 - plus many other hits and favourites from my 30 plus years of recording! very proud of this collection! Just for you!
The Celtic Connection and our family history.
It surely is a strong one! my Mothers family were The Hungerfords, a very influencial family in British History. Much to my surprise ! our illustrious ancestors built a Castle known as (Farleigh Hungerford Castle) back in 1370 .Sir Thomas Hungerford built this medieval Castle & its a long story but they lived there for over 300 years! Some of them fought with the Kings at the battle of Argincourt, some of them followed Cromwell & met their demise! Sir Thomas was the very first speaker of the house of commons in the British Parliment! It is a very colourful & well documented history. It is described as the most significant Medieval Castle in England as it is at Somerset ,the actual family crypt contains the marble effigys of the two Original Hungerfords! And I do intend to research it well & put a lot of it into songs & poetry. Another big project! but one I will enjoy with the help of cousins who are also into this sort of thing!
