Performing in Ashburnham Crescent!
May I begin my blog today by saying thanking you for all your lovely Easter cards and good wishes over the Easter weekend. It’s been lovely to receive them and I’m looking forward to coming out of lock-down and moving forward with this years shows. This weekend I’ve been out and about performing my Driveway Concerts in all sorts of weather but like the saying says the show must go on and I’ve been adapting my costumes and wrapping up warmly to suit the changes in the weather.
Events are still sluggish to get going but there is movement and for now my Driveway concerts are
Down Came the Snow!
still proving to be the most popular way forward as I continue to sell my weekends. On Good Friday I was booked to perform in Weston Turville for a Birthday party and on Easter Sunday I sang for the residence in Ashburnham Crescent which is just across the road from me. Thank-you so much to Isabelle and John for allowing me to use their driveways and we couldn’t have wished for better weather. For those of you who follow me on Facebook I expect you have been watching my live streams as I try and share my shows as much as possible. Sometimes the wi fi can be a little in and out but it’s good for me to look over
A Warmer Out-fit for Biggleswade!
my performances as I have a number of new songs for this season which I’m still perfecting. It’s important to keep moving forward and to never stand still especially when it comes to my show planning.
With the current restrictions all my live shows must be performed out-side. Yesterday I was win Biggleswade and this time I came properly prepared and wore my thick green coat where the day before I got rather caught out in Dunstable as the temperature rapidly dropped and the snow began to fall. They tell me better weather is on it’s way and next week I have a mixed bag of shows to perform as I continue with the Spring theme. I also have a French show to perform on the 16th so I need to brush up on my French this weekend and I’m zooming across on Tuesday to Holland to perform for the Pickwick Club which began in the 1960s as a club for British War brides.
In my Warm Coat & Easter Bonnet!
I’m constantly expanding my repertoire and the time I’ve had at home these last few weeks has been extremely valuable as I continue to learn new material. This summer I’ve been booked to sing for the Leighton Buzzard carnival and the theme this year is the 1960s. Naturally I’m working on expanding my repertoire and I need about 3 hours of non stop 60s numbers which I will be performing from the top of a float.
This afternoon I’m taking my mother over to Stevenage for her second Covid vaccination jab and I’m hoping to get my second jab late May. That’s all my news for now as I quickly head out for a morning run.
Keep Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now! 😉
