What an incredible summer we’ve had! And what better way to mark the end of August than by a night spent in one of York’s finest hotels drinking champagne, after a successful day at the races? If it’s not so successful – well, you might as well drown your sorrows and cheer yourself up with a bit of live music.
I’ll be performing live in the York Marriott bar this week, Wednesday until Saturday, from 7pm-late each evening.
An unforgettable atmosphere and unlimited requests are guaranteed – hope to see you there!
Huge congratulations to Louise and Andrew Garvey, and a big thank you for inviting me to perform on your special day. Although I’ve played at the Merchant Adventurer’s Hall before, I’m always struck by what an incredible venue it is- one of the oldest and most prestigious buildings in York, built in the 14th Century.
Sunday was a fun day. I was rudely awakened at 6:30am (a time I rarely see on a Sunday) before strapping on my running gear and attaching a race number to my shirt. I spent a few minutes wondering how I’d gotten myself into this position.
Yesterday I had lots of fun working with Mark Pierce at his studio in North Yorkshire creating some brand new pictures for my website and blog. Really looking forward to seeing what develops (excuse the pun). Now comes the difficult part- picking which, out of the 300+ pics that were shot, will make it onto the new website.
I was over the moon when my friend Emma asked me to perform at her wedding last month. It was a lovely service followed by a gorgeous reception at Charlton House in Greenwich, the best-preserved Jacobean mansion in London.
A huge thanks to all who were there and came up to say that they enjoyed the music (especially to those who stuck around for country & western ‘Pokerface’). Thanks of course too to Emma & Tom for inviting me to play, and for your recent email:
“I just wanted to drop you a little note to say thank you again for playing at the wedding – everyone said how great you were.”
