A memorable week

We had a terrific time in our hometown officially launching both the Heart of Wire album and the As She Goes By single in the UK.  It was great to see such a crowd for our Heart of Wire intensive set which also spanned 10 years of lorna music.   August Actually and The Amber Herd were both sublime and were excellent guests of ours.

The week also saw As She Goes By receive airplay on Amazing Radio, Trent Sound, Irvine FM, WMBR 88.1fm, Nusic and BBC Radio Nottingham.  Matt joined Alan Clifford for an interview online and Mark, Sharon and Rein joined Dean Jackson on Saturday night for BBC East Midlands Introducing.   The single is available now on iTunes.

Finally, we have launched two new shirts for 2013.  Both are available in our store
