Moon & Tide This, the title track was written after I read Credo by Melvyn Bragg. It is an historical novel about the life of St Bega, a seventh century Irish princess who ran away from an arranged marriage to a Norse King. There are legends about angels appearing to her and how she flees her homeland and ends up at what is now St Bees in Cumbria. As I see her, there are these two aspects: the spiritual character, but also the bravery of what must have been at that time a very difficult undertaking. I particularly love the fiddle part which Danny made of the melody. It is very dramatic and gives a taste of the sea and the moon as the backdrop to her escape. The picture of the wonderful Norman church door on the inside cover depicts the church at St Bees which is worth a visit just to see the door. Tim Ellis (graphic artist) also used the design on the door throughout the CD's booklet. Lightning Tree Songs can often come from more than one direction and may appear to have no obvious connection to whatever triggered writing them. I was talking to a friend of my sister's in the pub one night and he was telling me about how when they were younger there was a crowd of them that used to go and meet at what he called the 'lightning tree'. I had never heard about this place but I remember thinking it would make a great title for a song. I often have lots of these kind of threads which may or may not materialise into a song, they are kind of on the back burner, waiting. I think it was quite some time after that I was in a Quaker Meeting when a F/friend came in and said that this character had turned up in the village at the pub in Blennerhasset, and again I thought 'this sounds like a song'. The song proper can also take on a life of it's own which it actually did in this particular case, as I think the lightning in this context is symbolic of some kind of epiphany. The Foxes of Cumberland This was the song from my first CD which many said was their favourite. And as Steve and Danny brought something different to the table this time round, I thought we should include the new version here. We also brought in a flute player on the CD called Terry Coyne and he sang some lovely backing vocals on this track as well. Turning the Tide I was booked to play for a Fairtrade event in Silloth and had foolishly said that I might write a song for them but actually forgot all about it. Then Chris, the organiser, phoned up the week before and said she had told everyone that I had written a song for their event! As I can never usually write 'to order' I said something to the effect of 'no way', to which she simply replied 'I will pray for you'. Anyway, fair to say her prayers worked. Silloth is on the Solway coast and that's where the imagery comes from of this great movement of people changing the way international trade works. When you see the likes of the major brands changing how they do business, you have to understand that large groups of people can actually change the way the world is being organised. Ours is a time where it is becoming apparent that the cult of the personality, and likewise the politicians who are always aligned to pressure groups, are almost useless as regards coming up with solutions to these kinds of problems. Such solutions can only come about by grass roots community groups. I read a great book titled The Aquarian Conspiracy by Marilyn Ferguson, who predicted this back in the eighties. I also attended an event by a related group at Cockermouth (Riversmeet) who said that at the moment the number of such groups is rapidly increasing. The Fairtrade movement has been particularly successful but there is still a long way to go in alleviating poverty globally. Harvest Moon The outline for this came as part of a trio (along with Foxes of Cumberland and Remember the One from my first CD) after I had been to a festival in Galloway. It was finished later on when I returned home another time from this festival. It was September and it was freezing, and there was a huge full moon that just sat on the hill, so beautiful, and all
