#368: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! One of the many blessings of attending the Brewood Music Festival last weekend was catching up again with ace Move guitarist Tony Kelsey. During our extended musical chat that evening, Tony discussed one of the other musical projects that he is working on, namely Red Shoes.
Red Shoes are a Midlands based folk/rock outfit who also feature Carolyn and Mark Evans, Tony Kelsey [on guitar/mandolin] and percussionist Bert Priest. The band have also worked with former ELO and Wizzard member Bill Hunt.
Their first critically acclaimed album "Ring Around The Land" was released in 2010 to much critical acclaim. But now in 2012, Red Shoes are working with Pledge Music to raise the necessary funds in order to produce and release their second, much anticipated release - produced by Mick Dolan - which will also feature Fairport Conventionists Dave Pegg and Dave Swarbrick. Yours Truly KJS has pledged - why don't you? 10% of post-target profits will be donated to The Stroke Association. Visit the official Red Shoes web site and Pledge Music page via these links thus:
