“I love my garden, I am a TERRIBLE cook, I have a blackbelt in tae kwon do though haven’t trained for years! I love festivals, dancing, punk music and 60s/70s tunes. If I wasn’t a musician I would be a midwife. My favourite folk song is ‘The Good Old Way’; I remember hearing it sung by GU4 at the Derby Gael Folk Club; it was an epic wall of sound and at the end of it, a woman in the audience piped up and said ‘ooo that were a washing machine for my soul that song!’ I couldn’t agree more”
