Waterwood got me back to making music after a few years out. My aim was to revisit some of my earlier songs and musical themes and look at them through the light of Pistyll Gwyn, the misty woody place which is now my home in West Wales.

The tune here was originally written for a piece of theatre at Dartington Hall School in 1985, which then evolved into a song called ‘Rat Race’ before becoming ‘Waterwood’. I do like this version, but I suspect I’m not quite done with this one yet …

The image is of Pistyll Gwyn woods, summer and winter. The beautiful woman is my mother, when she was a teenager – picture taken sometime in the late 1940s.
