In Yarpole, a small nearby village, I found optimism in the form of an elderly lady with a brightly coloured Snoopy pouch with the words in bold “let the good times roll.” She told me she carried it with her during the pandemic like a mantra, a good luck charm, a reminder that despite all that’s wrong in the world, there’s no use in a cup half empty.
When a comedian and a folk singer use the same local church to prepare for their respective comeback concerts, the constellations align and these two very different artists decide to join forces and put on a gala concert at Walcot Hall, Lydbury North, on Saturday 13th November, 6.30pm
This summer I’ve reclaimed a part of myself. It was a part I thought was lost forever: the road warrior within. Dinner at service stations, traffic jams, running low on fuel (well, completely out), parking tickets, and loading up the car with amps. leads and high heels.
Rose has been a regular presence on the Jazzmann web pages for a number of years. Blessed with a stunningly pure voice and an innate musicality her love of words, song and singing has found her exploring the worlds of folk, jazz and Americana with a variety of collaborators, including local gypsy jazz guitar wizard Remi Harris, another artist who is due to feature on the Fringe Festival programme.
A friend took me to Kyre Gardens, in Tenbury Wells – an enchanted land of lily ponds, buttercups, stone faces and secret doorways. I was reminded of the verse I was given as a child by Dorothy Frances Blomfield, ‘the kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer God’s heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth.
After over a year of the absence of live music I’m thrilled to be able to invite you to a concert in real life, real time – on Friday July 2nd at the beautiful St Laurence’s Church, Ludlow. Rehearsals are underway and I’m really looking forward to sharing my new music with you.
In my first gig since December 2019 (!), I’ll be singing at St. Laurence’s Church, Ludlow on Friday 2nd July as part of the Ludlow Fringe Festival.
I’ll be accompanied by the Anne Tupeling String Quartet, local pianist and composer Steve Dunachie, as well as my long-time collaborator Martin Riley. It’s going to be so lovely to perform again
