Busy with family and singing life i have been neglecting my site but hope to update it more often now. I have updated the photograph gallery page as I know they went missing for a while when the site was hacked. I will search my files and add more as i can. As always if you have any of me from the shows please let me know although I cannot always use them for copyright and quality reasons.
