Here is the new video for Song For Mick, written for and dedicated to our old friend Mick Shaler.
Filmed at The Bear Pit Theatre in Stratford by the brilliant Daryl Kibblewhite.

You join us at an exciting time for the band. We have just rounded off a year's successful gigging with a record-breaking two-night sell-out at Stratford-upon-Avon's wonderful Bear Pit Theatre, and the new album Live At The Tump is out and about, and receiving some extremely positive feedback (I thought I told you to edit out that feedback - Ed.)

It has been a great year. We didn't travel as far afield as in previous years, which made quite a nice change, and we had the opportunity to play two local festivals - Welfest and Fabfest - where the weather and the audiences were jolly kind to us. An honourable mention must go to the lighting guys at Welfest; thank you chaps, you made us look quite good ;-)

On a sad note, we bade farewell to ex-MOTL fiddler Mick Shaler this year. He passed away in the summer after a long, brave battle with cancer. As a small tribute to a huge character we have written and recorded Song For Mick, which appears on the new album, and we hope to do a studio version early in the new year.  In the mean time, check out the new video, above.

Cheers, everyone, have a great 2016.
Ron, Al, Phil and Phil
