Nowhere do you find all the threads of song, dance, musician, caller and organiser woven together into such a rich tapestry. The tag of ‘one man folk festival’ is well earned!

Looking back as well as forward, few people can convey with such eloquence their life experiences. His songs are written from a lifetime of travelling; always the observer passing through, each song is a vignette of life, like a story told over a drink in a bar. Each has an integrity that tells you it comes from something real; characters come to life like people you know and places become as familiar as if you had been there. As Allan says at the beginning of each concert, “Sit back and enjoy the journey.”
