Neil Halstead Competition Winners

18th October 2012

Last weeks competition offered up the prize of a CD copy of Palindrome Punches, the new album by Neil Halstead. The question was:

The album cover with the owl and the owlet is taken from Florence Holbrook’s 1898 book The Hiawatha Primer. What is the name of Hiawatha’s grandmother who raises him?
and the answer is, Nokomis.

The first three correct answers drawn from the deerstalker came from, Miriam Darlington of Totnes, Caroline Gill of Ipswich and Matt Morden of Carmarthen. Congratulations to you all, the CD’s will be in the post to you this evening.

Thanks, as always, to everyone who entered the comp and thanks to Neil’s label, Sonic Cathedral Recordings, for giving us the prizes. More Neil info, including upcoming tour dates, can be found on his website here.
