I write songs, sing them, tell stories and run workshops. I've performed at many house concerts in the US and love the friendliness and intimacy of the house settings - my only difficulty has been looking at some of the delicious food on offer and knowing I can't have any until after the music because of crumbs in the throat! My songs are frequently based on stories, from Greek myths to tales of King Arthur, and there's often a contemporary twist.

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:
Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.
Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!
We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.
Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.
I found you on Hedley's page. I really enjoy your music! I would love to do a show with you if you are interested sometime. I will be touring through France, Germany, Belgium and Holland March/April 2010 and the UK in May 2010.
Thanks for the contact. We don't know yet if British Folk music and stories can work in a German setting-- we are going to test Irish music and stories for the first time with Ben Sands next year. If it works well-- then we will try more.
Best wishes, Penny
