Anyone Know What This Is All About?

New Steeleye/Terry Pratchett @terryandrob collaboration is rather good by the way. Feeling inclined to play it again.

Ooh! Does that mean the "Wintersmith" CD has been released? Is it available in regular music stores, or only online?

Did you hear about this today?

"We are delighted to announce that Sir Terry Pratchett will be dropping by
World Fantasy Convention 2013 on the Friday afternoon, 1 November 2013. The 2010 World
Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient will be in conversation with
Rob Wilkins, talking about his life and career, as well as hopefully reading
from his 40th "Discworld" novel, Raising Steam, published by Transworld the
following week.

Please note that, regrettably, Terry is unable to sign any autographs. We
politely ask you to respect his wishes."

I LOVED Steeleye Span in the 70s. Had all their records. Saw them at de Montfort Hall in Leicester a few times too...... brilliant!
Respect to your choice of music Sir Terry :clap:
This CD sounds like it's worth a listen or twenty.
