Off to Stow Maries WW1 Aerodrome!
As ever I’m in a bit of a dash tonight to get everything ready for the weekend. Today I was performing in Edgware and I’ve two shows back to back tomorrow as I go all out with the Swinging 50s and 60s. You may well have seen on my facebook pages I was working with my friend Kim on Tuesday singing for the Women’s Section of the Royal British Legion in Quainton. It was their 60th Birthday and I was booked to perform my “Hooray for Hollywood” show and the “Swinging 50s and 60s”. Kim was my sound engineer for the day and also made the wonderful celebration cake which was cut by the Countess. However not everything went to plan. My net book had a fit and wouldn’t fire up my 50s and 60s show for my second set. Fourchatly I recited a few poems to fill in time while Kim was able to re-boot my net book . Don’t you just hate tecnolagee I can see why theatres are going back over to mini disk it’s much more reliable and why I always carry mini disk as a back up just in case. Not that Kim was faied at all – cool as a cucumber weren’t you dear!

The Cutting of Kims Cake!
Kim and I are a little like Hinge and Bracket when we get together and we do take them off rather well. Oh just incase you are wondering who’s who – Kim’s Hinge and I’m Bracket! And while I’m still in character – Hinge the cake was lovely dear – solid as a rock! 😉 Only joking!
The Swinging 50s and 60s has been very popular this week although I’m going all WW1 on Sunday for Mothers Day. I’ve been booked to sing at Stow Maries Aerodrome so I do hope you can make it along. To find out more click onto the Aerodrome’s web-site at www.stowmaries.org.uk Stow Maries Aerodrome is at Purleigh, near Maldon in Essex and I’m looking forward to visiting very much. I’m going to have to play it a little by ear and decide how best to perform my shows once I’ve seen the location. At first I was booked to perform 3 x 45 min shows daily although I have a feeling it may suit better for me to stay in one costume and sing gentle songs from WW1 every 20s minutes while visitors enjoy their tea – we will have to see.
Well must dash Thank-you for Following and Toodle Pip!
