He’s also published a novel. Celebrating 45 years in the business - he’s on as great form as ever.

With her exquisite pastoral songs of love, vulnerability, femininity and longing Milly has become a prominent player in the Norwich music scene and has earned herself respect and affection from peers, colleagues and fans alike.
