Me on stage with Kit and Adam
Me at The Heros of Moreton Exhibition!
Sitting by the Lake at Fossebridge
Out and About at Boughton in the Water
I’m not sure if I will be able to write-up a full blog tonight as I was late starting my work due to my computer not arriving back untill 2.30pm this afternoon. I sent Patrick Bell away for more memory and he seems to be happier and not making quite as many creaky noises as usual. I’m back in the studio tonight – just finishing off some house keeping and up dating my net book and ipad with the new musical changes I’ve made on some of my musical arrangements. I’ve had a really good listen to my album and I’m pleased to say there is not a thing I want to change so I hope to put “The Good Old Days” into production tomorrow although I still have to approve the artwork! So fingers crossed I will be able to get this Music Hall album out for the 1st August!
Talking of Music Hall I’m just back from the Cotswolds and performing my WW1 show “Pack Up Your Troubles” for the “Heroes of Moreton” exhibition in Morton in the Marsh. A big thank-you to Adam Wood and Kit who invited me to sing for their event and what a lovely event it was too. I was booked to sing at Redesdale Hall and Adam and Kit had put on a wonderful exhibition in the hall. If you click onto my facebook star at the top of this page you will see I have posted up lots of my photos onto facebook – many of which show the exhibition, so do please take a look. In truth Saturday was a bit of a dash as I had a WW1-WW2 show to do on the way in Aylesbury first and then it was straight to Moreton for a 7pm curtain. As it happens it couldn’t have gone better and I wore my new WW1 costume which I designed for day time and dashing from show to show. It’s come out rather well – a sute in pale blue with navy trim and the skirt has gorday inserts which give me the freedom of movement I need. I’ve designed the coat so it can be worn open allowing me to move freely on stage – perfect! Mind you come the evening I did change my hat to silk – something a little smarter! I really enjoyed Saturdays show and we had a super audience which really got into the swing of Music Hall. Adam and Kit had decorated the hall beautifully and I enjoyed the exhibition too!
On Sunday I took some time out to visit Boughton on the Water. I love the Cotswolds and I’d booked to stay over at Jurys Inn in Swindon. Originally I was down to do a show in Reading but it fell through at the last minuet so I decided to do a bit of sight-seeing instead. I headed back into the Cotswolds and discovered a wonderful hotel on the way by chance. The Inn at Fossebridge. To be honest Swindon is not the place for me and I couldn’t get out quickly enough – too modern and I hated the one way system! So if I am ever that way again I shall try the Inn at Fossebridge. I had a lovely Sunday roast lunch and then enjoyed Boughton on the Water there after!
Gosh I’ve just seen the time and I need to eat before heading to the studio. Thanks for following and Toodle Pip!
