Paley & Son launch video
There was barely room to move in the Apple Tree by the time the music started. The CD launch was a great success!
Tom Conway and multi-instrumentalist Robin Gillan kicked off proceedings with short sets. Tom and Ben then performed a mixture of numbers from the album together with some other material. Towards the end they were joined by Robin on guitar and Rob Mason playing harmonica. A good time had by all!!
Film maker Barney Snow managed to capture the proceedings brilliantly. Here’s a short video for your enjoyment.
Paley & Son
Tom and Ben have a number of shows lined up in the coming weeks.
Paley & Son launch gig
We’re launching Tom and Ben‘s album at Come Down & Meet The Folks at The Apple Tree pub in Clerkenwell, London on Sunday 31st May. Guesting with them will be Tom Conway, Rob Corcoran and old-time fiddle, banjo, guitar and rooster songster Robin Gillan.
Robin plays on the album as well as ace bassist Jonny Bridgwood and fabulous harmonica player Rob Mason who’ll all be backing Tom and Ben. Your DJ will be Ski Williams. It’ll be a great afternoon/evening.
Bonnie’s January/February 2015 tour
Bonnie is hugely sorry to announce that, because of a serious illness in her immediate family, she has had to postpone her tour from the 28th of January onwards. Bonnie sends her apologies to everyone but hopes to be able to reschedule at a later date.
Album launch concert – 1st July 2014
Here’s an invitation to the launch gig of Bonnie’s CD.
Appropriately, we’ve chosen Canada Day (the 1st of July) for the event. It’s being held at the splendid Lexington in London. Support for Bonnie & Her Boys will be provided by the brilliant Lords Of Thyme.
Tickets available from: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/274339
It’s going to be a great night. We expect to fill the Lexington and Bonnie will happily sign your CD for you.
Bonnie and the band’s next outing will be at the Half Moon at the end of the month. A great venue and another opportunity to see Bonnie in a relaxed setting.

On Friday last (28th of March), BBC4 aired its recording of the brilliant Bert Jansch celebration concert held at the Royal Festival Hall last December. What a fine tribute from his friends and fellow musicians. It’s available for viewing on iPlayer until the 5th of April. You’ll find Bonnie Dobson performing her song Morning Dew with Robert Plant, Danny Thompson and Bernard Butler about 1 hour 15 minutes into the programme. Wonderful!!
