Story

From the album 'Dream of the Miner's Child' Summer 2012. Featuring Megan Palmer, and special guests Melissa Carper, and Jolie Holland.

'Dream of the Miner's Child' is dedicated to my Grandad John Williams. The album has many special guests, including my band The Maybelles. I'm often asked 'What's an English girl doing in New York City playing country music?' I've set out to answer that question and tie together my Yorkshire roots, with the folk music and arts community I'm part of in America for the last twenty years. There are songs by emerging and established American and British songwriters; a couple of traditional folk songs; and a number of my own.
