A joint concert on Saturday November 12 at York Explore Library, Museum St,York. 2 – 3.30. I’m looking forward to doing my performance, The Nameless Children, based on my gothic, supernatural novel of the same name. I will be using original words and songs and playing music on the guitar, hurdy gurdy and Appalachian dulcimer. A Waggoner’s Lad is a fascinating, sometimes poignant story told in words and original songs by David Swann. It tells of his grandad, Charlie Swann, an East Yorkshire Waggoners, from being hired at a hiring fair to volunteering for the Waggoner’s Reserve and his life at the front in France during WWI.
