On Zoom. 8pm Friday 11 December

Profits will go to Belper Food Bank

Not the usual Christmas fare—no visit from Santa or singing of White Christmas! No Silent Night or Away in a Manger! A set of traditional songs and stories with a seasonal flavour including a couple of ‘Village Carols’. The main theme is winter and the  turn of the year with just the odd mention of Christmas but from a more secular, practical viewpoint. Humorous, serious, thought provoking and the odd ghost story thrown in. 

Get yourself a mince pie and a glass of something and join us.

Since the first Lockdown earlier this year I have avoided Zoom. I think it’s a poor substitute for a live performance and very often the standard—artistically and technically, is poor. But I’ve missed performing and the time when we can feel comfortable about cramming into a room for a gig still seems as though it might be a long way in the future, so I’ve given in. I’ve dipped my toe into a couple of open sessions which haven’t really changed my opinion about virtual concerts, but it is an opportunity to sing and tell. Better than nothing! This will be my first solo Zoom concert. Will there be others? Depends…

I’m not charging a fee for this and, apart from the Zoom licence, there are no expenses so we should be able to donate a good amount to the Belper Food Bank who do great work.

Many thanks to Belper Fringe (aka Belper Arts festival) for hosting it and doing the technical bits.
