Hey everyone!! I’ve had a couple of really lovely gigs recently and thought they were moments worth mentioning! I had the honour of opening the show for Albert Lee at Leicester Square Theatre on 5th March. It was an incredible night! When I was studying guitar at music college we learnt all about Albert’s style of playing, and it was pretty cool to be supporting someone I idolise so much! Here are a few photos:
Another amazing gig recently was a performance in a 1000 year old chapel at Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa!! WOW!!! It was a breathtaking venue – so intimate and candle lit – reminded me of Christmas! I also had a lovely review of that evening too, which made me very happy indeed! You can read it by clicking the link below.

What a fantastic weekend I had performing at Country 2 Country Music Festival at the o2 Arena!
One of my favourite things about the festival, was the sense of community. Everyone was there to enjoy music and immediately it felt like a big family of country music lovers.
I also liked the fact that every artist backstage showed nothing but support for one another. There weren’t any ego’s floating around. We were all there together to celebrate our love for performing and writing music and it felt like such a great community of friends, rather than competition.
We played on Friday and Saturday and had such a lovely warm reception. I learnt a traditional banjo piece and was terrified about playing it because my fingers were FREEZING and it was hard to get them moving to the speed they needed to. I think all things considered it went very well though, I like pushing myself live and throwing myself in the deep end and I’m really glad I made the effort.
My band were AWESOME, must say a huge thanks to them – wouldn’t have been the same without them Sam Rommer, Sam Whiting and Dom Cardell really stepped up and performed with character and so much heart that I could cry.
Here are a few photos:
And here’s a little video of Sam and I warming up backstage..
Thanks so much to anyone who came and watched, and as a result is now HERE!!!!
