On Stage at Curisitea!
I confess my news this week is very much more of the same with me dodging showers between performances and catching up on contracts and paper work.
Saturday’s show in Ivinghoe went well when I was engaged to sing at the Curisitea Tea Rooms as a gentleman’s leaving present to the village. Peter had asked me to perform a selection of songs from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Fortunately Peter had provided me with a gazebo and we were lucky with the weather. There was a light

sprinkling first thing and then fine there after. So thank-you to Peter for inviting me and to Hayley and Sven from Curisitea for making me so welcome.
With the weather still a little hit and miss I was able to wear my new finger-less mittens which were sent to me by my friend Fay. Thank-you Fay they proved to be perfect and as you can see in the photos they match with my dress perfectly, That was so kind of you and thank-you for sending them to me. xx
At The Curisitea Tea Rooms!
I’m now streaming more of my shows which is good not only for my client to have a record but for me to. It’s a great way to learn. I’ve been finding recording very helpful with regards to listening to my singing technique and keeping on top of my vibrato. I have a number of new songs I’m gradually working into my shows so filming my development and looking at their placement in my show plans is very useful.
This month I’ve been approach by a number of care homes to perform for their residence. In many cases this is the first time residence have had any live entertainment in months. With my larger events still not quite in place for 2021 it’s been lovely to sing for a different audience. Once again I’ve been filming my shows and audiences have been very appreciative as I’ve been booked to sing a varied selection of songs from

the Variety stage to the 1970s.
This Sunday I’m back in the recording studio as I pick up a few new tracks for a couple of my forth coming shows. I’ve a 1960s show to do for Beatles Day on the 25th June so it’s been necessary for me to invest in a couple of new songs. I’ve also been asked to do an around the world show for National Music day so I thought “Istanbul not Constantinople” and “Tulips from Amsterdam” would be good choices along with some Italian Opera, American Swing and traditional British tunes like “Danny Boy” and “Loch Lomond”.
That’s all my news for now and don’t forget if you click onto my Facebook pages you can see my show streams.
