My latest music column was in this week’s Evening News. This time I’m talking about my fun time at Reload Festival, looking at music charity The Black Dog Music and also reviewing great gigs by Boo Hewerdine and The Wombats. Plus there’s previews of Norwich Sound & Vision Convention and my upcoming gig at OPENNorwich supporting the wonderful Eliza Carthy
Happy September! My latest column is in the Evening News and as well as talking about my new video ‘Time to Grow’, there’s lots of cool gigs coming up including one of my favourite songwriters Boo Hewerdine coming to the Octagon Chapel in Norwich and Uke East, a ukulele festival at Norwich Arts Centre. Being a ukulele lover I’m looking forward to that.
I also talked about some great music workshops and masterclasses that I recently attended for Musical Keys at Create Norwich and also Take Note Summer School at The Garage. Really inspiring stuff!
Thanks so much for the kind words about my new video. ‘Time to Grow’ is now also on YouTube so really appreciate any watches and shares.
Check out this really lovely new interview with the excellent Proper Music blog about my passion for music and early music influences and inspirations. Talking about music is one of my favourite things to do and here I discuss how my mum and dad’s eclectic taste opened up a whole new musical world and how seeing favourite male songwriters Neal Casal and Boo Hewerdine inspired me to get out there and do it on my own. Previous artists interviewed for this Waking the Muse feature include Eve Selis, June Tabor, Seth Lakeman and Gretchen Peters so am in illustrious company!
