Singing at Hastings Herring Fair

I’m really looking forward to singing at Hastings Herring Fair this Saturday November 23rd 2019 taking place at 1.30pm on the Stade open space in the Old Town (next to the fishing boats and Hastings Contemporary). I’ll be singing songs that tell extraordinary stories about ordinary/extraordinary women, including my own compositions. It’s free to get in and it will be ‘under cover’ so we’ll all stay dry!

Singing at Hastings Pride on Sunday!

I’m getting excited about singing in the Arts Tent at Hastings Pride on Sunday (August 25th) and the weather looks like it’s going to be good!

I’m very pleased to have my Scottish pal Annie from Findhorn with me who’ll be joining me on a couple of numbers as well as having a jazz guitarist accompany me on some bossa nova…
