Lots of things going on at the moment, but I'll start with album and some vocal project updates:
IN A SMA ROOM
Still working on the Sma Room album - it has taken a while but nearly there. I do have a beautiful album cover/song book design by artist Bryan Angus - I would buy it for that alone! Will be putting more news on this up soon plus info about gigs.
Starting rehearsals in April for a special Blue Rose Code/Southern Fried Voices 2018 reunion at Perth Theatre - we are repeating some songs for that gig and doing a few new ones. This was a wonderful gig to listen to, let alone be involved with. (Some pictures and videos in the Gallery section). If anyone that was in that SFV 2018 choir, hasn't heard about this yet, contact:
Also about to begin a new 8 week project with THAT (Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust) and the Perth CHAS group so very much looking forward to that.
7th to 12th July Vocal Tutor for
Richard Michael - Summer Jazz Course
Looking forward to my 2nd year as Vocal Tutor at the Richard Michael - Summer Jazz Course.
The course is unique in being open to players and singers of all instruments/voices, all ages and all levels, whether or not they have any previous jazz experience. Course Director Richard Michael BEM heads up a team of some of the finest professional jazz performers and educators in the country, who will work to develop skills and confidence – whatever their starting point – in small supportive groups
A theatrical celebration, spoken and sung, of the people and landscape of South Dublin County. Performed by Clamour & Roar, - A chorus of citizens
This is a wonderful community production which I am very proud to be part of.
04/04/19 In a Sma Room Kickstarter was a Success
Excited to announce that the Kickstarter was a success, we (Paul Harrison, Kevin Mackenzie, Patsy Reid and I) are finally going to record the album of the songs from the wonderful William Soutar’s poems that we used in the show In a Sma Room, - We plan to record and release the album by August this year.
Please come to the pre Album gig on Monday 22nd April in Perth
Now preparing for its 15th anniversary since I started it with the community!
'Craigie Comunity Choir' is forging ahead with new arrangments I have written and reviving some wonderful older ones.
Watch this space, we might be planning something!
