Welcome to my SPRING blog!
Have had a great couple of months. As some of you know, I have had a difficult few years of close bereavement and loss but it now feels like I’ve found my mojo again!
I’m starting ’Singing Tribe’ events in Manchester – big gatherings of people singing just to be in the moment. No gigs, no performing, just being together singing simple meaningful songs to uplift and soothe.
First one is on Mother’s Day and we’ll be singing lots of mother honouring songs.
Next one will be in a month or so.
I’m also expanding my singing workshops across the country and this year have had a lovely time in February and March doing them in Worcester and Chichester.
Next one set to be in Chester hosted by Caldy Valley Voices on May 4th.
Hoping to be in Bristol in November and wanting to do ones in Norwich and Swansea at some point.
Let me know if you can link me up to organise one near you.
I enjoyed some brief minutes of fame when ‘Cold Feet’ Episodes 5 and 6 hit ITV in Feb! My lovely ‘Rhythm of Life’ Choir did themselves proud J Am so glad they used a REAL choir for cancer patients. I’ve been running that choir for 5 years now and they are an inspirational group of people.
And my ‘Hay ho’ warm ups have now been seen by millions! Video clip here
I’ve also had some great gigs with my choirs including singing with ‘Open Voice’ at Manchester Cathedral for Hate Crime Awareness week, singing at Asylum Seekers fundraiser, and for International Women’s Day event at Theatre Clwyd.
Here’s Wrexham Community Choir in their Suffragette colours.
I do newsletters once every couple of months. If you’re Facebook friendly then you can get more regular news on here by liking my page here.
Well, it does us our hearts good to KEEP SINGING together in these strange times. I have a vision of getting everyone in the Houses of Parliament to sing songs of unity and peace, so that they all might start working TOGETHER!
That’s all for now.
Wishing you much harmony,
