Where was I?

How did I get to be so busy? It’s a mystery. The past couple of months has been hectic, almost frantic, with teaching and performing work, online events—symposia, lectures and spoken word performances. I’m exhausted!

Plus writing and recording the weekly episodes for the podcast. The last 8 episodes have included performers based in Lincolnshire (Sarah-Ann Hassal), Liverpool (Roy Carruthers, Chris Darwin, Frances Brodie Oldbridge), Los Angeles (Joanna Cazden) and coming up in tomorrow’s episode, Christopher McDougall (London) and Mark Kydd (Edinburgh). What an absolute blast to work with these fine and generous performers.

There’s also a small matter of co-hosting a folk music programme on our local community radio station, Wirral Wave Radio, with Mike Rimmer. Once a fortnight we each present 6 tracks which Mike records and edits to go out every second Sunday evening at 9:00 pm. It’s quite a treat to discover new artists—new to me, at least, and to play a small part in keeping the tradition alive.

And I had the honour to be selected to record some tracks for The Narrowboat Sessions. This is an actual recording studio on an actual Narrowboat, on a canal somewhere near the Welsh border.

★★★★★ "Just what is old? You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable."

★★★★★ "Clever tales in a unique woman's voice. Flloyd’s mini-dramas are refreshing, witty and cleanly done. Acerbic yet sweet, like a fresh lemonade."

"I have just found this piece of genius. What a talented performer Flloyd is. Some versatile acting provides us with four different and equally believable characters and the piece is written with truth and pathos. Beautiful editing too, I recommend it. And Flloyd, old? Never!" Sarah Macdonald

“Absolutely wonderful, almost sounds as if it was written by a real writer.” Bill Cooke, (who is even more twisted than Flloyd).
