Music Recommendations

Hurt In Your Heart

EP by Katie Spencer, Alan Thomson & Spencer Cozens

Katie is a true music friend of Deepdale, and we love to welcome her to play for us. You may have heard her perform or listened to our interview with her in the Festival Special episode of the Deepdale Podcast. This new EP is beautiful, and a great pick by Chris.

Book Recommendations

The Shock Doctrine

by Naomi Klein

The sub heading of this books is ‘The rise of disaster capitalism’, so you can probably guess it isn’t a laugh a minute read, but Chris recommends it as a fascinating insight to times like right now!

The Overstory

by Richard Powers

Chris has owned this book for a while, putting off reading it as he wasn’t really sure about a fiction book about trees. But now he’s reading it he’s loving it, and highly recommends you reading it. It was the Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Price for Fiction.

The Unlikely Pilgramage of Harold Fry

by Rachel Joyce

This is one of Jason’s recommendations, which he is loving reading on the Libby electronic library system. Jason has also enjoyed The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce, and loves the characters that Rachel observes in her books.

Girl Seven

by Hanna Jameson

Jason has long been a fan of noir, particularly books like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and this book by Hanna Jameson was an accidental find, but a very pleasing one. Set in London, in a club where much of the underworld seems to collide.

TV Recommendation


Recommended to Jason by an American friend. This is a fascinating look at the development of the USA constitution through slavery, war, race relations, womens rights, equality and injustice. If you are interested in US politics, then you’ll really enjoy this.
