CATHERINE HOWE

Many of our lives metamorphose into something else as we get older and that’s as true of singer-songwriter Catherine Howe as anyone and so for her recording career visit her website http://www.catherinehowe.co.uk or try the links at the foot of this page.

However, the primary focus of this webpage is on Catherine’s other life as a historian and in particular the publication set for late spring 2020 of her third book, ‘London Story 1848’, a fascinating exploration of Chartism in the so-called Year of Revolution.

For details of this and Catherine’s two earlier books please click on the cover images below:
