A warm and funny novel about folk musicians, by one of Britain's
most popular radio broadcasters. Having been sacked from his
university teaching job, Ed has returned to his home town to pick
up the threads of his old life with his friends and ex-girlfriend,
Jeannie, in the Northern Sky folk music club. His dream is to play
with them again, making music like his hero Nick Drake - and maybe
even a little money. But know-it-all Matt O'Malley is now running
the club and has ambitious plans for them that involve contracts
and record deals. Can Ed get in on the act, or does O'Malley have a
hidden agenda involving the less talented but more photogenic Lane
Fox? And can Ed win Jeannie back - or will his legendary temper
prevent him from getting anything right? This is a funny and
touching novel, written with real Northern soul by one of the
country's most popular and knowledgeable commentators on music. It
will appeal to anyone who loves music, anyone who's ever been young
and ambitious, and anyone who's ever fallen out with someone over
the one thing that unites them.
