Our Man in The Field writes musical snapshots from the lives he’s observed or the life he’s lead. Influences include the open spaces of the North East Coast and the raw energy overflowing into London’s sky line, and all the people in between.

Kirsty Merryn

Kirsty Merryn is singer/songwriter based in Greenwich in South London. In her own words:

“Sad songs that make you feel better”… I’m a musician newly transplanted to Greenwich, though born and bred in the New Forest. I’m influenced by folk music, especially its recurring themes of love and loss, and every day events which become your whole world. I’m also influenced by the beauty and melancholy of the Forest that I grew up in. I write and perform my own music; all tracks are written, recorded and produced by me on piano, ukulele, guitar and vocals.
