A song charting a childhood journey on a north Norfolk coast road features on a new music CD launching next week.

Modern folk band Addison’s Uncle’s debut ensemble album I’d Like to Tell You a story includes B1159.

The 11 tracks all hark back to the childhood of the band’s songwriter Philip Pearson, who grew up in Horsey where his parents still live.

The B1159 song recalls a family trip in an old Ford Sierra, via villages including Bacton, Sidestrand and Overstrand as it wends between Caister and Cromer.

When the single was launched last year Mr Pearson, who like most of the band now lives in Norwich, said: “It is an upbeat happy song, which showcases how beautiful Norfolk and what fun it is to be in a band.”

The album also features a DVD Live at Festival Too, which was recorded at the Festival in Kings Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place, in front of 12,000 people.

A launch event is taking place at Norwich Arts Centre on January 16, with the The BeauBowBelles and Pirate Joe also performing.

Tickets at www.norwichartscentre.co.uk. The album will be for sale on the night and can be downloaded via www.addisonsuncle.co.uk
