Dear all and everyone.

After some stunning dates in Holland the Grim Reaper has had a go at finishing me off...

Not yet my friends!

Pneumonia has hit me for six so we have to postpone the Clitheroe Grand Theatre concert until March.

Chris, December 22, 2016.

"What a great album. It is everything that you want from a Magna Carta record and then some. The title track is brilliant and so evocative of times gone by, I absolutely loved it. There is no filler on this album it is 100% classic Magna Carta, with a mixture of musical styles that keeps the listener interested to the end. This album is a corker.

Great job Chris, there really is life in the old dog yet!"
