Hello all, Welcome to November and a newsletter with a further update on, amongst other things, the new album ‘I’m walkin’ here’.
That comes later but first a wee report from last night at The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock where I performed my first full concert for almost a year. It went well. The venue is great. The audience was lovely. The crew and everyone couldn’t have been more helpful. The IWH launch tour is underway.
I am playing some dates in the south in March (see below) and wouldn’t mind a few more in that period. Martin Peirson at Adastra is booking it – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stephy will take care of any enquires for House concerts. I would like to play some because I do really like them. If you fancy a concert in your front room contact us via the website www.rabnoakes.com Do contact us if you want to know more about how all that works. We’ll consider anywhere in the UK.
So, to ‘I’m walkin’ here’ which was finally officially released on October 16th. It’s available to buy at www.rabnoakes.com/shop where there’s a launch offer for the CD version. It’s available for another fortnight or so (from now – Sunday November 15th) without P&P charge – saving about £2.50. The Double-CD will cost £11.99.
What they say about ‘I’m walkin’ here’

The limited edition vinyl release will contain the songs from CD1. All 26 tracks will be available via an exclusive download code which is contained in each LP. No discounts here though I’m afraid.
It’ll set you back £20.00 + £4.00 P&P. It does sound good though.
We anticipate delivery of the LPs sometime this coming week. It’ll be despatched as soon as it arrives.
