Steepletoes and Road to Dorchester video

A live video of a tune that I wrote about a black cat and Graham Moore’s terrific song about the walk that the Tolpuddle Martyrs took to Dorchester to face trial for forming a secret society and demand fair pay for their work. This was shot at Wednesday night’s gig at the Paper Dress Vintage Emporium. Thanks to Mike Watts for the camerawork

I’m jolly excited to announce that the second pressing of Absent Minded Traveller is nearing completion and will have a fantastic one off design by illustrator Robert Fresson as its cover. The disk will be available from next week, the bandcamp page will be updated as and when it comes out!

The Road to Dorchester

A song by Graham Moore about the route of the Tolpuddle Martyrs to Dorchester Jail. I grew up in Dorchester and the story of the Martyrs has always been very close to my heart. I will be performing this song as part of the show ‘Three Acres and a Cow’ in Oxford on September 14th

Pedal Folk Summer Tour

Robin, Katie and I climbed on our bikes again for a second cycling tour during the last week of August. Our route took us from Frome to Bath, Bristol, Stroud and finally Swindon and a triumphant return at the Central Library.

We rode 130 miles, climbed 10,000 feet (thanks to the Cotswolds) and played 7 gigs in 5 days! Not bad eh?

Leigh Folk Festival

The last weekend in June seems such a long way away now but it now holds a special place in my heart as the Leigh on sea Folk Festival falls upon that weekend and in my opinion there is nothing like it! An entirely free festival that showcases some of the best talent in folk and all of its underground and more avant-garde forms. I met up with my good friends Robin Grey, Kate Denny, Rosemary Lippard and Jane South there and we spent a wonderful evening playing tunes (with both guitars as well!)

We then watched the incredible Blood on a Feather in a packed and stifling scout hut, a collaboration between folksinger Sarah Hepburn and Danish free-form guitarist Mikkel Elzer. They were incredible, pedals galore, bowed guitaring that sounded like a flock of birds, beautiful lo-fi vocals created a wonderful ambience to send us to sleep…

Sunday brought with it beautiful weather and great music. I finally got to see some of my favourite bands out there at the moment; Harp and a Monkey, Rapunzel and Sedayne, Stephanie Hladowski & C Joynes, Alasdair Roberts and Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker and during my set I was joined in my song Haymakers by Robin, Rose and Jane… I don’t think I’ve been happier on stage!

I’m very much looking forward to next year, thanks to the organisers  and to Steven Collins for the lovely photos above!

New Tune and Studying Economy

Good afternoon, I hope your bank holiday is a chilled out affair

I’ve recently popped up a couple of new demo tracks, the first is a tune that I wrote whilst noodling in C modal tuning, it is now working under the title “steepletoes”

The other new track is sung with the lovely Rose Lippard in preparation for our gig at the Green Note this coming Monday, this is a cracking song that we heard done by The Devil’s Interval a few years ago

See you down the road!

“overflow(ing) with power, poise and presence… I’ve not heard a better ‘live’ acoustic album in a long time” about the E.P ‘Tim Graham and Rachel Hall’ Folkwords

"Tim Graham understands the meaning of space and is not afraid to use it, which he does to glorious effect on Too Good To Burn. The song seems as built as much on anticipation and atmosphere as it does on vocal delivery and music and the overall effect is fantastic." - The Green Man
