Friday 21 August

We're getting into the last phase of rehearsals for Very Hopkin. Three weeks today we'll have played at The Borderline, and be getting ready to play at Pontardawe Arts Centre. Follow this link for gig and ticket information.

This week's song for your delectation is 'Sparrow' from Festival Hall. In keeping with our Very Hopkin theme, Brian Willoughby appears on this track playing guitar.


Saturday 8 August

We're just a month away from the first Very Hopkin concert at The Borderline, London.

Our song this week is 'What a Friend You Are' from Now and Then. Tom Paxton's original version of this will be re-released on August 14, 2015 on the dual release of Peace Will Come and New Songs for Old Friends.
There's a link to Mary here too, as she provided backing vocals on the album. Danny Thompson provides his own inimitable bass playing, and Tony Visconti produced both albums.

As a build up to the Very Hopkin tour, we'll be giving you images and interviews with the band in rehearsal - look out for a feature on 'What a Friend You Are' - coming soon.
