I've been helping out the Mary Stevens Hospice Choir over recent weeks. They gave a superb performance in our Christmas Concert at the Old Swinford Hospital School, Stourbridge on Tuesday evening. Check out these videos on YouTube:
I wrote a new verse for 'O Holy Night', which reflects themes from the original version.
What a great evening! I really enjoyed Saturday's gig at the Crown Inn, Fivehead. The room was full, the atmosphere warm and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves immensely.
The organisers don't charge for these monthly Folk & Acoustic Nights but pass a beer mug round for donations to pay the guest musicians. Thank you everyone for your overwhelming generosity. I was dead chuffed! 🙂
I also sold another ten CD's and have actually sold out of 'People & Places', which is brilliant! More money for Primrose.
Thanks to Laurie & Karen, as well as Steve & Jacqui (proprietors) for your welcome. (Laurie took the photos.)
Thanks to the friends who came along to support. Lovely to be reunited!
Also to the 'floor singers', especially Norman & Ingrid. Great to see you both again. Norman is a superb musician with a gorgeous voice. "A class act!" Jill whispered, as he was singing 'Journey's End' from his new album 'Walkin' the Road' - available here.
Great night at Clent Parish Hall on Saturday, where Derek Mitchell and I provided support for the main act Risky Business. We were also joined by the trio Small Change.
Risky Business were really good, serving up an excellent collection of songs that had a story behind them - just the kind I like! Quality musicians with Ruth Powell's strong, clear and beautiful vocals to the fore. They were also good fun!
Our set seemed to go down very well and we had loads of encouraging comments afterwards. It was a delight to play with Derek again. Thanks for your superb 'noodling', my friend!
I had a a wonderful evening at Clent Parish Hall in November 2017, supporting Dark Horses.
Howard Lowry has asked me back - this time as support to the popular trio Risky Business.
Derek Mitchell is hoping to join me on guitar, so looking forward to that.
Do come along if you're free. (Contact details on the flier - see photo.)
