Alan Tyler in full flow
Alan Tyler is special among the WHC performers and collaborators for several reasons including the fact that the bonhomie of his long-running London club ‘Come Down and Meet the Folks’, was one of the major inspirations for setting up the WHC in the first place. Best known as frontman of notorious Camden country rockers The Rockingbirds, Alan played an early WHC gig at The Priory with the equally stirring outfit Alan Tyler and the Lost Sons of Littlefield.   More recently he has been playing with The Alan Tyler Show and has composed a suite of melodious songs inspired the River Thames, one reason for choosing him to perform at the 2016 River Carnival show.

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
