  1. Huw, We were in Lyon over the weekend 23 March 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed your concert accompanying Maria Pia de Vito. Your playing is wonderful. Graham & Sheila Gibson.

  2. re: Quercus, from David Ballantine, writer of ‘A Tale From History (The Shooting)’

    Hello Huw
    Just wanted to say I heard Quercus and it is a stunning album.
    I’m so thrilled with your wonderful playing on my song, and throughout.
    I appreciate your hard work and talent.
    If you ever need a lyricist or want to work on anything, please let me know.
    Many thanks, David

    Bio
    June Tabor’s version of Ballantine’s song ‘A Tale From History (The Shooting)’ appears on the Quercus album released in March 2013 by ECM. His music also features on the soundtrack of an Australian movie, The Extra. A Japanese film in pre-production will include a song co-written and produced by David, now working on the soundtrack score.

    His songs are now being recorded and performed by an eclectic range of performers – from folk and country through to jazz – including Peter Corry, Siobhan Skates, Susan Tomelty, Mary Duff, Romeo Texas, Jennifer Licko and Brigid O’Neill. Cattle Company featured three songs co-written with Brendan Monaghan on their album ‘Big Town After Dark’. Siobhan Skates’ 2010 CD ‘Better Than A Dream’ includes three Ballantine titles.

    He has co-written with many people, including lyrics with Steven Gallagher and Garry O’Briain.

    Soundtracks: David wrote the score for the ‘Jackie’s the Boy’ series, broadcast on BBC1 in August 2010, ‘As Others See Us’ (BBC, 2011), a documentary focusing on journalists who reported on The Troubles. Other soundtrack projects include ‘Oz: Around Australia on a Triumph’ (DVD); ‘Spotlight: Divided Orange’ and ‘The Pox Doc’ (both BBC, 2011). ‘Spotlight: Home Truths’ (BBC, 2012)
    ‘As Others See Us’ received the highest BBC audience approval rating in the UK for 2011.

  5. Dear Huw,
    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you but I wondered if you could offer any advice. My son Matthew (age 17) is a trumpet player and has a passion for jazz. He learnt trumpet with Abram Wilson until his tragic death and since with Jay Phelps and Eric Truffaz. He plays with and learns improvisation with Alex Hawkins. They are all excited about his talent and future. We have just moved to mid Wales and Matthew is struggling to find jazz opportunities and other jazz musicians to play with. I wondered if you knew of anything locally? Thank you, Kate

  6. Dear Huw,
    I have just again listened to Teares and my heart is so touched from this song…thank you for putting your spirit through your music out there…
    Much love, Birgit

  7. Huw, Terrific set at Dempsey’s. I need yiour email address to send you the photos, it isn’t available on your Web site
