Happy Christmas and Live at Newcastle City Hall with LINDISFARNE

As you may know, I am a member of the Shoeshop Quartet - an a cappella, close harmony vocal group. Now, it was all kept top secret, and the band wanted to keep it a surprise, but this week we opened for the legendary Lindisfarne for their Christmas shows at Newcastle City Hall!

WHAT an experience! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Highlights including our 'vintage' santa-inspired dresses, our cover of Alan Hull's song "Nights" (I was on lead - no pressure...!) and of course, singing back-up for the band on the grand finale, "Clear White Light".

Read the Chronicle's review of the show and see the photo gallery

A fantastic way to kick off the festive season. Now, I'm off down to Yorkshire to celebrate with family and friends.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the best for 2017!!
