So today is the opening of the Olympics. Hoorah! The nation is in a frenzy. Apparently.
All the hype aside, there’ll be some great sporting stories waiting to unfold. Enjoy it.
There’s a funny thing that happens at the Olympics though.
Bolton UNISON commissioned me to write a song supporting the strikes about to take place on November 30th.
So here it is. Enjoy! It’s called Greedy Fingers.
This will be new to you, but I wrote this song a few years ago, especially for the children at Whitefield School in Liverpool.
I sung this song for the first time during my headline set at Hove Folk Club on Friday.
But I wrote it on the way to the Sophie Lancaster gig at the end of last month.
The song I wrote for the Shrewsbury Pickets Justice Campaign, My Name Is Dessie Warren, has been featured on the Union Songs website.
Unionsong.com is an influential collection of rebel songs, songs of freedom, work songs, songs of dissent, protest songs, liberation songs and labour songs.
