Gospel Round aired on BBC Introducing show!

Last night my ‘Gospel Round‘ performed by Dark Sky Voices was aired on BBC Radio Newcastle! It was part of the BBC Introducing programme presented by Nick Roberts which devotes 2 hours of time to original music by North East songwriters.  I am particularly pleased to have a live recording aired for the first time rather than my own studio recordings. This track was just one of several songs recorded at Simpson Studios by Ian Stephenson. You can listen again for a month here at 1.39.

Festival firsts up North and down South!

It’s been a wonderful weekend of festival success! Andover Ladies Choir won the Folk class at Mid Somerset Festival with their performance of Sing a Song of Sixpence whilst here at Ryton Music Festival, (Tyne and Wear) my own choir Dark Sky Voices won their class with a stunning performance of Amazing Grace! It’s terrific that festivals are now back up and running. I know competitive music making is not for everyone, but having competed several times myself in the Tynedale Music Festival as a student, I now realise the value of the taking part. Thank you and a big well done to all singers involved. Keep up the good work!
