It was a fabulous weekend for those attending our village beer festival, the best ever thanks to the hard work of the organisers. We had some great music on Saturday evening and I really enjoyed being part of it. Continue reading “Toft Beer Festival 1-3 September 2017”
I’m really excited and looking forward to 6 days singing jazz and blues in France so taking a few days chill-out time before I leave on 12 August.
Thank you Scotsdales audience for another wonderful evening on Thursday 13 July, we loved playing for you. It was my 11th year of performing this annual event and it’s so encouraging to see you returning year after year. Thank you also for the generosity you showed when we ‘shook the buckets’ for the Dosoco Foundation.
And thank you Scotsdales for the amazing hospitality you always give at this event.
We’re ramping up towards the Scotsdale gig tomorrow. The band sounded amazing in rehearsal last night.
An amazing gig last night in Bury St Edmunds. ‘WE ARE SOUND’ gave a superb performance of a very eclectic set of music in their sold-out ‘BURST’ concert. The audience loved it and treated the singers and musicians to a standing ovation. Thank you Andrea Cockerton for making it happen yet again. You are a star and it’s a privilege to be part of it.
I’m looking forward to ‘guesting’ a few numbers with the Kingston Blues Band at the Ice House in Dry Drayton, Cambs on Friday 16th June.
We had an amazing time on Sunday rehearsing for the BURST gig in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 8 July. The lovely Fyfe Dangerfield of the Guillimots joined us to hear our cover of his gorgeous song, Little Bear, which we will perform during the Bury gig. We then spent time being recorded and directed by Fyfe for one of his current music projects. It was such a privilege and delight. He’s a very special person and a lovely family man.
Spent a wonderful time with Mark Warner today, jamming the ‘blues’. Mark is an awesome guitarist and blues singer from Louisiana, USA, and has been in the UK visiting friends. Mark joined us for the open music night in Toft People’s Hall, on Saturday 13 May. It was such a treat and a real surprise for our own local musicians. It was a great privilege to spend time today learning from such a master of his art. He returns to the USA tomorrow to join his band ‘Road Doctor Revue’
I’m delighted to be teaming up with Gerry Prusiewicz and Steve Wright for the open live music session in Toft People’s Hall on Saturday 13 May.
I’m really looking forward to the recording session on Sunday 14 May with the fabulous group We Are Sound under the direction of Andrea Cockerton. This is the final song to complete the groups new EP. More news when it’s available.
