Welcome to my latest online newsletter.
What a busy month February has been! Kicking off with a capacity crowd at The Old Bakery for the regular Jazz Jam, it was great to see so many regulars in attendance along with a healthy number of new faces too. This month’s photo was taken by Craig Taylor-Broad, during a recent gig at the Bakery. I was delighted to be working with Craig once again and I am excited about further collaboration with him at future gigs.
It was a real pity that due to family illness Lucy O’Day, Sam, Keith and I were unable to perform the live set of our original material for Sarah Gosling at BBC Introducing . We very much hope this is something that can be re-arranged at a later date.
Another new venture for me in recent weeks has been the creation of some background music for Hypnotherapist Robert J Irwin’s latest audio commentary on coping with anxiety. Many thanks to Gerry Gillard for all his help with the recording and video editing and you can view this video on Robert’s YouTube channel by clicking here . Feel free to subscribe and add a comment if you wish. The audio is also now available to download from iTunes.
Following a solo performance last year, I am thrilled to be invited back to once again play on the grand piano in Truro Cathedral in September, as part of their lunchtime concert series and there will be further details about this a little nearer the time.
Sunday lunchtime duo gigs at The Headland Hotel now run from 12.30-2.30pm and have been extended until the end of June. The length of the gig has also been increased to include a solo set during afternoon tea until 5pm. My residency at the newly refurbished Budock Vean Hotel also remains in place and the beautiful new modern decor at this hotel is most impressive and well worth a visit, if you are ever in the area. In the meantime, be sure to check out all my gigs at the Bookings page as this is always regularly updated with any last minute engagements.
That is about all the news for now.
I hope to see you at a future gig.
Thanks for your support … as ever.
