Some feedback from previous weekends..
 
“Thanks so much for a great weekend, it was quite a learning experience for me and I got so much out of it.  
You really are inspirational.
 
“Thanks Johnny,  a most productive weekend was had by all. Just having the opportunity to share views with other songwriters, relax in a lovely environment and concentrate entirely on producing songs, with guidance and new ideas is a tremendous pleasure.”
 
“Yes I really enjoyed the whole weekend, thanks for all your help, you are the Master!”
 
“Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement.
Separating myself completely from the various pressures that I face and focus on being creative
for a whole weekend is a great treat and we couldn’t have wished for a better setting or company”

“I just wanted to thank you once again for all your efforts which made for quite a challenging
but very helpful weekend.  I especially enjoyed the one-to-one sessions –
the critical moments when the shape of a new piece starts to gel”

“Thank you for creating such a creative working environment.
The food, hospitality, advice and encouragement all helped to make it a great weekend” 

Fee is £200 – which includes supper on Friday and Saturday / lunch on Saturday and Sunday plus  tea/coffee/drinks/snacks

RECENT NEWS

It’s been an amazing few weeks for seeing live music.

Kathy and I saw the wonderful Canadian artist Loreena McKennit at Birmingham Town Hall on her Lost Souls Tour – beautiful songs, arrangements, with really fine musicians. We’ve loved her music for years, and it was great to meet her backstage afterwards. I’ve played her music both live and on my radio show – and my recent interview with her is still available on BBC Sounds – Sunday 24th Feb at midnight on BBC Bristol, Glos, Somerset, and Wilts. 

The other day I saw Ranagri (pron: Rannergr-i) for the first time, a band with great songs, energy, and amazing harp and flute playing, and the next day, the up-and-coming duo Harbottle & Jonas.

Before that I enjoyed:

The very talented Henry Bateman and his band launching their new album;

Cara Dillon supported by Gloucestershire singer/songwriter Molly-Anne;

And Louise Mosrie a singer/songwriter over from America;

Discovery and Silver Sam at Barny’s in Stroud.

********************************************************************

My new 30 Songs compilation album 

Here are thirty songs that mean such a lot to me. They cover several decades and are taken from twelve different albums; from my first solo album Roll on Dreamer in 1978 through to Borderland in 2014.

The first CD has 15 songs that feature my band, with some very fine musicians and singers such as Phil Beer, Mick Dolan, Matt Clifford, Anthony Head, Mick Candler, Trevor Foster, John Broomhall, Pete Acock, Steve Dolan, Gareth Sampson, Steve Hutt, Tony Bennett, and Bill Zorn.  Songs include – When All Is Said and Done, We Shall Not Pass, New Day, Believe in You, Catherine, Celebrate My Life, and Everybody Knows  almost all of the tracks are not available on any other CD.

The second CD is a personal acoustic selection – 15 tracks with the talents of Mike Silver, Phil Beer, Paul Burgess, Mick Dolan, Matt Clifford, Paul Metsers and Geoff March.

Throughout the recording process, I’ve been very lucky to have worked with three fine pairs of ears, Mick Dolan, John Acock, and David Pickering-Pick. I really enjoyed putting this new compilation together, and hope you’ll enjoy listening!

Available by mail order and cheque – or by phone for credit card details. Do leave your phone number – you can also email your phone number for us to call you back.

£16 inc P&P     (£18 for European mainland / £19.50 for rest of the world)

FEEDBACK 

Re 30 Songs.  “Super CD, thank you Johnny!” – B.P in Germany

“We thoroughly enjoyed your concert at Pimperne, Dorset! Having never come across your music before, I now have several of your CDs and listen to them frequently in the car. You have a beautiful, pure, enchanting voice.

You came highly recommended by Poacher’s Moon, who I have seen many times and who did a gig here in Blandford a couple of weeks before yours. So glad they did! Really love your style of music. Now looking forward to hearing your arrangements for the poetry selections, which are beautiful and evocative, even though I have never been to your neck of the woods. Thanks again” – G.R in Dorset

“You won’t remember me, but I purchased  five of your albums a few years ago online.  I don’t have a history of purchasing  folk music, I have spent most of the last 50 years experiencing jazz and contemporary artists on both sides of the Atlantic;  from Jack Jones to Sinatra,  Ornette Coleman to Charles Aznavour.

In the early 1970’s Aznavour told me that …  ‘some artists are great  …   but you will know.’  Having listened extensively to your music now for a few years … you are clearly such an artist. You possess an emotional level of communication that crosses the footlights and touches the audience, it is a gift”. – J.F

“Thank you so much for sending me the words, I really appreciate it. As I said, the book “ Forest and Vale and High Blue Hill”, means a great deal to me, as does the CD. “Cotswold lad” is a particular favourite, commited to memory, as is “This Night The Stars”. – J.D

*RECENT NEWS

Thank you ever so much for supporting my concert By Severn and Somme at Gloucester Cathedral. It was such an honour to be invited to perform in that glorious building on the Centenary of the Armistice weekend.

Very sad news that two legends of the folk scene – Bill Caddick, and Roy Bailey have passed away – Bill is most famous for songs like John O’ Dreams, Unicorns, and She Moved Among men. He also worked in theatre productions at the National Theatre, with Magic Lantern, and formed Home Service with John Tams. Roy Bailey was a fine singer on the folk scene for over 50 years – working with Tony Benn, John Kirkpatrick, Leon Rosselson, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting, and many others.

My thoughts are with Bill and Roy’s families and friends.

*FEEDBACK from facebook, emails texts..

Re my Shewsbury Folk Festival set with Phil Beer..

“Died and gone to heaven… with Phil Beer, a packed marquee… fantastic. Big glass of red wine in hand – perfect Sunday afternoon. Just beautiful music. It was a magic hour… I do so hope you will both play together again. You saw the reaction…. everyone just loved you! “- L.M. In Nottinghamshire

“Fabulous set from two amazing musicians”- S.L

“We just want to tell you how much we enjoyed your reunion gig with Phil at Shrewsbury Folk Festival. It brought back many happy memories and we were so pleased that there was such a huge appreciative audience” – R & P.D

“Saw a clip of you performing with Phil Beer at Shrewsbury – sounded great!” – S.B

“Great trip down memory lane with Phil – lovely set!” J.B

“Thanks to you and Phil for my request, Innocents Song, a perfect choice. Lots of happy memories seeing you perform together again playing some of my old favourites. See you at Christmas if not before “ – H.A

“Last weekend I started to seek out all the tapes I had. With Spotify I don’t need them anymore, I thought. So 85% landed in the bin. But there were some tapes that had special words or music on them. One of them was a tape taken from a radio programme in the Netherlands, were I live. I never found a cd of Johnny Coppin, I also didn’t know if I had written it correct in 1980 or so … Of course the quality had gone down, and for 15 years I hadn’t listened to it anymore. But today I did … and searched, and found your website! It wasn’t a 9 days wonder, no!  I’m happy I listened to that old tape today, and very happy you’ve made more music and kept on singing. I’m grateful … Thank you, and good luck!” – M.R
