At last we have some news to share of upcoming live performance dates starting in June throughout the year (subject of course to government plans and with all Covid protocols in place) in London, Manchester, Farnham, Cornwall, Chiswick and Shoreham, with more coming in as we write.
We are positive for being out in the world again and hope you can join us at any of these - including - if you are in other countries, the live streams!
We will have a new single release of one of the Forgetful Heart: Dylan and Cohen and Love collection coming soon - watch out for my newsletter - if you haven’t signed up for it yet please do here. We send only at most monthly and with all upcoming news or join our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds where you’ll also see all of that.
Thrilled to announce that the single I wrote with Simon Wallace for the wonderful singer and our friend, Nate Rogers, is released on Kristalyn for download from April 23rd. Called Watching The Clouds we’ve already had a lot of very high praise do have a listen here.
With a fair wind the new children’s show The Smartest Giant written with Samantha Lane will open in May. Dates will be announced soon.
And thank you for staying with me on the journey and my sympathies and love to everyone who has, (I think we all have) experienced personal losses or very tough struggles in these strange times.
Written by Barb Jungr and Simon Wallace
