As well as being part of the first (and shortly, the second) CD by shanty group Baggyrinkle (along with 'Catters Skipper Jack and Michael in Swansea), I have my "solo" CD out, "Pennbucky to Llangenny" - 16 of my own songs in the traditional style, based on stories from the Maritime and Industrial past of my home port, Swansea, South Wales. It also includes two sets of traditional tunes. Tracks are:

All Washed up Ashore
Made of Wood
Poling Copper
Young Billy Young
Cobre Days
Lifeboat Horses
Mumbles Hornpipe/ Porteynon Whim
Jerry the One-Legged Rigger
Bronze and Brass
Drinks at the Cuba
Dead Reckoning
Greenholme/ The Ivy House
The Queen of Swansea
The Good Ship Skyvie
By Harry
Navigator Lady
Pennbucky to Llangenny
Elephants' Teeth

Tracks from the CD have been played by Frank Hennessey on his BBC Wales radio programme "Celtic Heartbeat", and on Murkey Chris's "Cool as Folk" radio prog. And I've sold copies to at least one Secret Santa!!

PM me for details if you're interested - I have a Paypal account.
