Out-side Danny House!
Paul Getting Ready to Sound Check!
The seasons are changing rapidly and it’s certainly worrying times ahead as I figure out how I’m going to sing through the winter season as the country continues with its Covid rule of six lock down. Last weekend was a complete wash out weather wise and I’m keeping my fingers crossed the weather will pick up and improve for next weekends run of Driveway Concerts. These will be my last ones of the season although I have been asked if I will perform my Halloween and Christmas Shows as out-door concerts which may be a way forward.

one to plan, I would have been singing in Swindon tomorrow for a Masonic Lodge’s centenary. Also Paul and I were booked to perform up in Yorkshire for Pickering’s 1940s “War on the Line” event which should have been taking place this coming weekend. It’s hard to reconcile that this time last year we were flying out to Milan for our shows in Italy. What a difference a year makes and it’s now a case of making the best of it!
Due to the current situation last weeks South Coast tour was reduced from the usual six dates down to just two, once the weather broke, rain made my out-door shows impossible. Fortunately Paul and I had been booked to perform our Big Band and Swing show at Danny House which was able to go ahead in the Great Hall. A wonderful open space where people can properly socially distance.
Paul and I sang all the Big Band and Swing favorites from Glen Miller, The Andrew Sisters, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and more which went down extremely well with the Danny House audience. I’ve been booked to return next year with my 20th Century and Battle of Britain shows

which are dates I’m looking forward to very much. All we need now is a vaccine so we can be rid of this horrid Covid-19 and get back to some sort of normality.
This is usually a very busy time of the year for me with events, private parties and the Halloween season, but with the Autumn and Winter weather starting to set in it’s going to get more difficult performing out-side.
Last week Paul and I made the most of having some time together as we took Poppy for long walks and enjoyed lunch at The Cormorant in

Portchester. As for the future these are very uncertain times. In theory I’m fully booked for the year but in this current climate anything could happen, so watch this space and I shall keep you posted.
It’s my Birthday on Saturday and I’m praying for good weather as I perform the last of my Driveway Concerts. I’m hoping in the next few days I will receive my photos from the 1960s Angela Adams photo shoot I did in September, which will be something to look forward to.
In the mean time stay safe, toodle pip and bye for now! 😉
