On to London for two shows this weekend. See you in a few weeks Yorkshire! Thank you for the warm welcome and a beautiful start to our tour!
Here is our favorite snicket or ginnel in Penistone. Penistone means "hill town" and it's the highest market town in England.

Cupboard Dry

Once again enacting the mysteries of "Cupboard Dry" in Britain, having no idea what it means, but sensing it has the most fairy tale potential for our clothes.

Dansko had no red Mary Jane shoes this season, so I painted my brown ones. Pictured are my great great grandmother, Sarah Catherine Margaret Nipper Hylton, and my second cousin Charley Smith, or as I call him, Baby Charley, the Lightning Boy. More about them both at our shows! 

Love and hugs to you all!

The Hum

Just sent out a new song and story to our fan club folks! We'd love to have you along with us on the journey as we make new music. This one is all about the hum up on the mountain and the machines that make it – an unreleased version of one of the songs from our new record.
