EDINBURGH how I love thee!!!!
I’m knackered but really happy. After a fantastic gig at Cambridge Rock Festival where I met some wonderful people, I trundled my gear up to Scotland and performed daily with the Word Cafe at the Pleasance, Bunker One. Poets such as Julie Mullen, Mel Jones, Alan Wolfson, the Scottish Poet Laureate Liz Lochhead, Rachel McCrum, Sara Hersch, Lyndsay Diane Russell, Rob Auton and others were incredible. Poetry to me, is one of the hardest forms of expression because it can be so stark, and so intimate. When it’s good it’s Mae West amazing.
I also played at Bannerman’s Bar, hats off to Courtney Lynn and Erin Bennett and at the Caley Sample Room, with huge thanks to Robbie and Andy, and everyone who couldn’t have made me more welcome and who accommodated my dashing off to run with zombies at the Generation of Z performance. I managed to sneak in a little gig at the Aperol Spritz stage in St Andrew’s Square too!
See below for really exciting gigs coming up.

Saturday 20th September supporting Ivor Novello award winning Scott Matthews at the Castle Theatre, Wellingborough. I’ve seen some immense musicians and I’m one of those that tend to stand with folded arms and pursed lips at most gigs, but with Scott’s music (and I’ve been fortunate to support him a couple times), I’m enraptured. Incredible voice, beautiful words and enchanting playing. I really love his music very much, so this is a real pleasure.

Onwards and upwards my lovely friends, I don’t yet know what the future holds but I’m going to have new music to you before the end of the year and I’m really looking forward to sharing it with you xxx
