Walking With Wainright
Very pleased to upload a new video featuring a new song of mine - a tribute to Lancastrian and Englishman Alfred Wainright and that beautiful part of England called The Lake District where, as a youth, I spent memorable weekends climbing and walking. I released it early in the hope that it might provide some interest for the folk attending this year's Langdale Charity Folk Festivals - a neat grass-roots event that I performed at four years ago, whose funds are donated to the Lakeland Rescue Services. Good cause. <Click Here> to buy the mp3 Download.
Ethnic English Folk-Culture in New Zealand
All of my albums are now available to NZ schools, tertiary institutions, researchers, cultural organizations, publishers and authors, librarians and the general public at The National Library of New Zealand website. The Alexander Turnbull Library audio collection has added Two Ravens, The English Lament, and The Best English Singalong Folksongs CDs to Full Circle (uploaded in 2010) to its online collection - acknowledging the contribution that immigrant ethnic English people and our folk-culture continues to make to New Zealand's evolving multicultural identity. I'm well chuffed.
Just in case anyone is wondering where I've disappeared to, I'm currently taking a wee break from performing, although I'll be popping in at one or two folk clubs here in NZ over the next few month.
"At our concert in February in Meow, Nelson the name of English folksinger, Phil Drane from Lancashire, attracted lots of people. Phil accompanied his singing with some great guitar playing. The arrangements were beautifully intricate and perfectly performed. I also loved his singing which reminded me a little of Bob Fox. He presented a good mix of traditional and more modern folk music. Thank you Phil, for a great evening". …. Annie Van Herk, Acoustic Routes Club, Nelson, NZ
