In My Easter Bonnet!
I’m afraid I can’t be too long tonight because I’m spending the little down time I have between shows learning new numbers. I’ve back to back Easter Bonnet shows which is keeping me busy and from there I will be heading straight into the Kings Coronation season with “Happy and Glorious” Proms concerts.
With every season comes a different show and Easter has put a spring in my step. “In My Easter Bonnet” is a very pretty show as I focus on spring time tunes and it’s lovely to bring out a few of the old favorites from “Bye Bye Black Bird”, “Easter Parade”, “April Showers”, April & You” and “Apple Blossom Time” to name but a few. Last year I introduced “Tulips from Amsterdam”late in the season so it’s good to have it in place early for this year plus a few new additional numbers including the Neapolitan song “It’s Now or Never” better known to us all as “O Sole Mio”.
I’ve a pile of new numbers to get through and I’m working had on my Post Modern songs. I’ve just masted “It’s All About that Bass” and “Call Me Maybe” plus I’m currently working on
“Bad Romance”, “Wuthering Heights” and “I will Survive” performing them in the post modern style.
This week I was thrilled to get the call that Bletchley Park would like me to perform for their Concert Series. This year I will be returning on Saturday 12th August with my WAAF show “Straighten Up and Fly Right” and I’m really looking forward to it. Every year I like to do something different and I have a number of musical ideas I can’t wait to perform. So keep watching this space for the latest up dates and I will keep you posted.
This week I was also able to finalise my Normandy travel plans. I will be sailing out to France a little
Stepping Out Today in My Easter Fashions!
later than usual on 8th June and returning on the 12th. I’ve been booked to perform at the Liberation Ball, Salle le Studio, Place des Canadiens, Bretteville l’ Orgueilleuse (Juno) on Saturday 10th June which is another show I’m really looking forward to.
I’ve never played the Juno end, so this will be a first for me. I’m staying with my friends Karen and Adrian in Arromanches and I’ve promised them a court yard concert on the Friday before the 9th June. If I am able and depending on their Wifi I will see if I can steam the concert. I’ve not done much streaming since the lock down, but I’m going to give it a go and I shall keep my fingers crossed for a good connection.
May I wish you all a Very Happy Easter Keep, Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now!
