My song ‘The Suitor’s Ballyhoo’ was written over a decade ago but I’ve never been happy with previous attempts to recording it. I am super happy that last week in my new Sheffield studio I managed to land a version which comes much closer to how I always felt the song should feel.
Earlier this week, I was sat on a train to Coventry and felt a slow motion of the passing view shot on my phone would work rather nicely to accompany the song. I hope you agree and enjoy the new recording…
I am going to ease myself musically into the new year with a gig in Walthamstow on Thursday 19th January at The Hornbeam, my local community centre. A place brimming with excellent people, tasty seasonal locally grown food, ale, cake and art.
The plan is to do an early set for young families and then a second one later for everyone else. I think Basia and Caitlin are free which means violin and accordion. If anyone could nudge Candy to see if she can come and sing, I’d be grateful!
5.30-6.30pm kids’ kitchen family food time
6.30-7.30pm music family friendly set
8.30-9.30pm music 2nd set for grown ups!
