Photo of Rob BrayI’m Rob Bray, producer and songwriter for contemporary folk project The Straw Horses, amongst many others.

The Straw Horses’ debut release ‘Calendar’ retells 12 tales from Britain’s past.  As a keen amateur historian and a professional musician and songwriting coach, I’m particularly interested in the process of creating songs from factual, historical inspiration.

In this blog, under the category ‘The Songs Of Calendar’, I’ll describe the creation of that album.

Further posts will be concerned with various aspects of the crafts of songwriting and production.

    Hi Straw Horses,

    Congratulations on your IF Acoustic Tent gig! To me it’s always the best bit of the IF. Beware, the default sound always appears to be excessive reverb!

    Hurrah the Horses!
