Lavender and Lace is now on my YouTube channel and I’m looking forward to discussing it with BBC Cambridgeshire’s Sue Marchant on Sunday 3 June. I’ll be joined by Gerry Prusiewicz and Cathy Matthews who’s musicianship has helped make this track so beautiful.)
We had a great time playing jazz and blues and kicking off the Budleigh Salterton Gala Week. I was there for 6 days staying at the best B n B ever, so thank you Nicki for your wonderful hospitality in the fabulous setting of ‘Pebbles.’
Thank you Bowmers restaurant for the best Crab Soufflé I’ve ever eaten.
Musicians Pat Brandon, Marius Rudnick, Jim Newton and Peter Canter were just brilliant, many thanks for your wonderful musicianship.
Thank you Mark Warner for your wonderful hospitality and accommodation in your lovely home. The music was great and I look forward to your next visit to the UK to gig some blues again.
Had a great night with Mark Warner’s band, Road Doctor Revue. Played the blues at Clementines, New Iberia, moving on to New Orleans tomorrow.
I’ve taken my grandfather’s concertina to Roger Thomas (restorer living near Andover) and really look forward to having it restored to it’s former glory (it’s 100+ years old). It will take a few months but I’ll then be looking for someone who can play a McCann Duet to guest at one of my gigs. 😁 Here are two photos of the instrument and my grandfather, Thomas White.
I’m delighted with the lineup for the Budleigh Salterton Gala Week jazz concert, Sunday 27 May. I’ll be working with
Pat Brandon – Piano
Pete Canter – Bass
Jim Newton – Drums
Marius Rudnick – Saxophone
The final two concerts in this series were held on 10 March in the Lady Chapel, Ely Cathedral, and sounded utterly glorious. What a privilege to be part of it.
I’m really looking forward to joining ‘We Are Sound’ for this amazing concert which has now sold out 19 times. Andrea Cockerton, you are an absolute star, what a vision it was. It will sound absolutely glorious in the Lady Chapel in stunning Ely Cathedral. SOLD OUT unfortunately for those who are still hoping for tickets at some stage.
