Bev and How on tour in Sweden in their Benimar Mileo 201 van.

We left Newcastle upon Tyne in April 2019 to experience van life – on the road travelling, writing songs and playing music around Europe and the UK. Like everybody else, our plans were turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic but we’re still making the most of every moment. Stay safe folks 🙂

Taking inspiration from the origins of the blues and stories of travelling musicians playing street corners and store fronts, I’ve been on the move playing and singing wherever I get the chance. There’s echoes of Robert Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson, the call and response of work songs and gospel music, the slicker city sounds of Big Bill Broonzy, of ragtime and roots and country music and more.
