Now, I don't have time to tell you about who John Clare is and just why it's so important that he's recognised as one of the great English poets. That's my Dad's job. All I wanted to say is that since this summer, I have been writing tunes to carry his words. Have a listen, and see what you think.
There's a possibility that I may get to record some of these properly in the next year or so – I have about a dozen of decent quality. I apologise to anyone who may be instinctively opposed to the singing of folk music.
