|The talented Norma Winstone and Laura Jurd|
The Parliamentary Jazz Awards
It was fun attending the Parliamentary Jazz Awards at the Houses of Parliament earlier this month. Didn't enjoy the long queue to get in - it's just like going through airport security! - but seeing lots of my friends and colleagues and chatting over a glass of wine and some canapes in the company of Jamie Cullum, Moira Stewart and Dame Cleo Laine more than made up for it
Above is a photo I took of Norma Winstone (Wnner - Vocalist of the Year) and Laura Jurd (Winner - Instrumentalist of the Year) - two very talented women indeed!

Celebrating the Divas of Jazz in Worcester and Clows Top
Another lovely couple of gigs in new places for me. Worcester was a little different as it's not exactly rural but the venue certainly was spectacular. Our stage for the evening was set at the front of the most beautiful church. The acoustics were amazing and as always seems to be the case at these rural touring gigs, we received a very warm and appreciative response from the lovely audience.

Clows Top was a true rural location. We had tea and cake (gluten-free for me!) at a charming farm shop before the performance and were once again welcomed by the friendly and enthusiastic audience. I love rural touring!
