Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
I have yet to mention on this Blog that I am in a band along with quite an acclaimed Poet. Our venture is A Tiding Of Magpies – a Dark Folk duo. We have our first official release on the the latest COLDSPRING CD – Hail You Be Soverigns …
As you can / can’t see from the album inlay, it is a compilation of the ‘cream of the British Dark Folk scene.’ How we got on it I do not know.
The track in question is called ‘Coleman Grey.’ It is based on a story collected in Robert Hunt’s “The Drolls, Traditions and Superstitions of Old Cornwall, 3rd Edition (1881).” On the track, I make all of the noise and Prof. Oz Hardwick is the voice that you will hear. It is a pleasure to work with my good friend, Oz.
