Happy July!

Keeping it brief as I prepare for my annual pilgrimage to Richard Thompson's Frets & Refrains Acoustic Guitar & Songwriting Camp this week... but never fear I have mixed up this quick batch of lemonade with plenty of links to music, sailing, films and fireworks for you to enjoy close to home this month.

Peace out 'til August!

Grey Gardens
