- Finished recording the new album and decided on a title. Dollars are so tight though that I've had to opt for doing my own album artwork rather than hire the person I wanted to do it for me. I've also had to defer getting the first run done until I've got a few more shekels in the bank! sigh! the life of an impoverished muso - always new challenges!
- the Women Upfront concert last Saturday night - which was also a fundraiser for Heart Magazine Heart Magazine - was a winner! It was just great to see so many women performers up there putting their work forward. It was a great turnout ...and wonder of wonders, I had so many helpers that everything just ran like clockwork. No stress for me!! Did a few songs of the new album and got great response [and that's always satisfying]
- and the new chorus group that I'm coaching - Found - also found their voices on Saturday night and put in a "pearler" of a performance. There's so much work that goes into pulling such a group together but it is SO satisfying. And they're a great bunch of people - weekly rehearsals are always a hoot.
In the meantime, it's head down tail up working on the next projects - the Multifaith Concert which I'm organising in Newcastle for Mattara next week; the Folk In Broke festival is only a matter of weeks away - see more at Folk in Broke festival; the next Savoy Supper Club is going to be just a top night - check the blog in the next few days for new info on that - Savoy Supper Club ; as well as 2 new shows coming up at the Royal Exchange theatre in December "Krackers" - check it out at Royal Exchange Salon Theatre Newcastle . Gee I might even catch up on some sleep after Christmas!
