One month on since we launched the website, and for those not yet signed up, a link to our newsletter.
And exclusively on the FAF player, it's the first time you can hear Chris Wood's new song (which he dedicated to Folk Against Fascism at this years Towersey Festival) entitled "Spitfires".
I think this probably counts as a bit of a coup, and the timing of it is serendipitous to say the least. He wrote it in reponse to the BNP's use of the Second World War Spitfire as the logo of its recent European election campaign - dubbed the "Battle for Britain".
The song is taken from his upcoming "Handmade Life" album and tour, where Chris is joined by Andy Gangadeen (the Bays) , Barney Morse Brown (Eliza Carthy) and Robert Jarvis (London Improv Orchestra) in a brilliant new quartet line up.
Their Uk tour starts November 20th and runs through to December 5th, full info on the dates and more info on Chris is available from his new website www.chriswoodmusic.co.uk
We hope you enjoy listening, and please look around the website for any new pages.
