Very Exciting newsflash!

All 4 original members of Ishmael United will be reforming (after 36 years) to play a short set at next years Big Church Day Out (more info later)

We are wondering what songs you would most like us to play and you would most like to hear played live again.

What I would like you to do is to e mail me just 3 of your favourites either from the list below or any others from the ‘If you can’t shout saved’ or Rev Counta ‘life begins at 30’ album.

Here are a few titles to get your memories working.

Crowd trouble / Song of the last generation / Bartimaeus / Down in a noisy small valley (the Glorie song / Star on Sunday / Marksman / Jesus trip / Christian Schitzo / Love so great….etc. Over to you!

Free Song & Songsheet!

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 17.50.34We are celebrating the opening of Ish’s new website which now includes, for the very first time, the brand new song database. Here you can browse and download the sheet music of over 100 of Ish’s songs in 4 songbooks. This includes lyrics, guitar chords and topline piano scores. More songbooks will follow shortly.

To encourage you to join us in the celebration (and to wish you a happy Christmas) here is a free gift for you to download. It is the music to one of Ish’s most popular children’s songs ‘I once was frightened of spiders.’ Not only does the song have a strong message but children will love singing it.

What a weekend!

Just had a brilliant ‘Sting in the Tale’ weekend.

Friday night in a small Baptist Church hall in Devon which seemed to be in the middle of no-where but after I sang the last song I heard some of the most encouraging comments shouted out from the audience that I have heard in many years.

Then on Saturday night in the largest Church building in Cornwall, there may have been just a small number present but what a great night! These ‘Sting’ concerts are getting better and better! Can’t wait for the next one!

At last, you can download the music scores!

songbook-1On this new website you can now download 4 songbooks.

’52 Scripture Songs disc 1′ ’52 Scripture Songs disc 2′ ‘Songs & Hymns’ and the 3 ‘Little songs for little children CDs’ They are individually priced by the number of songs in the songbook.

All these 4 songbooks have all the words / chords and topline piano scores and will only be available as downloads not hard copy.

More songbooks will be added shortly. Check out the website shop for more details.
