This is a studio recording of songs and tunes I performed at the Invitation Concert, Auckland Folk Festival 2015, sponsored by Heron Studios for winners of the Martin Blackman Award. I'm supported by Caleb and Aine, who played at the concert, and by Jono, who kindly stepped in when Aine had to go overseas. I hope you enjoy.
