This week, despite the rain and heat combo, Damien has been working away on the Christmas album which is easier said than done when it's a heatwave outside! It's been lovely if not busy to have the brass boys around for this too. This week's pic is the brass aftermath...

Emma visited the brilliant Barnsley Youth Choir this week to take them copies of the album where they sang on Halt the Wagons. It's always lovely to see them.

People have been out and about this week with just one week to go until the release of Kate's new album Philosophers, Poets and Kings. 

Kate has been for chat on the Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2 over in Manchester which was a lovely catch up and they played three tracks from the new album.
