My new album now available at Bandcamp, is called Fir Tree Days. Why? Well I grew up in the tiny village of Fir Tree In the Wear valley area of County Durham, England.
I had a brilliant childhood there, with great friends, long summer days playing, long winter days sledging.
My Dad was a mounted Police Officer on Durham Police and he and my mam moved from Sunderland to Harperly Hall in County Durham. It was here that the Police horses were based. Only half a mile from the village of Fir Tree. I was born in Wear valley and spent my first 6 years of life living in a Police house at Harperly Hall before we moved to No.6 Police House in the village of Fir Tree. And that’s when all the fun started.
