I have had a really busy few months -most importantly becoming a new mum in December 2021! So I’ve taken a little break from performing but went back with a bang in February to perform with James Pearson and special guests in his amazing Burt Bacharach show at Ronnie Scotts, playing 4 shows over 2 days to a packed sold out house-post covid is happily here in terms of concerts and audiences, what a thrill to have a full room again. Ive also done alot of session work, continue to work my role as Lead Artist for the Aldeburgh Young Musicians Programme in Snape Maltings, and just last night performed a wonderful solo recital with Miloš Milivojević on accordion, to a sold out crowd for the lovely Shrewsbury Music Trust. Im delighted to announce I will be performing again at the Crazy Coqs on May 4th with the amazing Misha Mullov-Abbado and Nick Fitch on guitar-we promise to give you an amazing show ! for more details visit my gig page for links and tickets 🙂

Dont miss it.
