Recording my Harmonies in the Studio!
It’s just a very quick blog tonight as I get ready for the weekend. Last Monday I was in the recording studio working with my musical arranger Richard Whennell on harmonies as I picked up my new musical arrangements of the songs “Busy Doing Nothing” and “Apple Blossom Time” which I plan to show case at my Bletchley Park Concert on the 6th August. https://bletchleypark.org.uk/event/fiona-harrison/
When ever I commission a new arrangement I always make sure I record a rehearsal CD at the

same time which helps me to learn my songs correctly and quickly in time for performance. Richard never cease to amaze me with his skill and quality of musicianship. I quite surprise myself sometimes at just how many bespoke musical arrangements I have in my repertoire, but then again it’s a life’s work and I’m still commissioning. I like to be different at it’s important to stand out from the crowd. The trick is finding those forgotten gems that every-one knows but haven’t been sung for a while and bringing them back to life.
This Saturday I’m performing for The Leighton Buzzard Canal Festival. It’s the first time I’ve done it and I’ve been invited to perform my Pearly Queen Show “Underneath the Arches” at 3.20pm.
Bletchley Park Concert Series Saturday 6th July 22!
The event is taking place at Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, Tiddenfoot Lake, Leighton Buzzard LU7 2AE and we are all keeping our fingers crossed for dry weather. https://www.leightonlinslade-tc.gov.uk/council_events/linslade-canal-festival/
I’m looking forward to it very much as I have a great show planned and then straight afterwards I’m performing at The National Museum of Computing which is also located at Bletchley Park for the staff BBQ. I have a quick turn around and a complete costume change as I go from Pearly Queen to Vintage Glamour.
