gig at the old queens head

How on earth did England get into the quarter finals?! My slot as this show has been cancelled due to a euro 2012 football clash…

I have just had a sneaky last minute gig request from the lovely Clara at The Old Queens Head in Islington and am happy to tell you that I am going to be playing at their Sunday Social on 24th June at 4.15pm.

You can find more info about the line-up and the venue on the facebook page here –

The Old Queens Head, 44 Essex Road, London N1 8LN

Ok, so it is not the most flattering photo of any of us but…

…this couple travelled from a small town in northern France just to watch me play with Barbara Bartz and Candy Parfitt last Sunday at The Southbank Centre.

A week on, I am still find this totally humbling and also a little exciting.

Thank you Thibault and Claudia
