Happy New Year!

I have been spending the Christmas season with my family and friends, but I just wanted to say Happy New Year!

2017 in Review

It’s been a year of highs and lows, but I am nearly squealing (in my head) at how excited I am for 2018. One of my resolutions for 2017 was to gig more, which I definitely have done – I have been regularly taking part in Roots Acoustic Evenings around Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire and will continue to do so into next year. I have performed at wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and evening receptions, as well as public music nights at pubs and bars. Hopefully there will be many more to come in 2018 🙂

Another aim I had to 2017 was to push my Youtube channel more, of which I mostly did for the first half of the year! I ended up not being able to record any videos from July onwards because I took on a job that took up a lot of my time, and unfortunately the Youtube channel was one of the things that I couldn’t find time for. Hopefully I can get some more covers recorded next year – if you have any requests then please comment below!

Here is to 2018!
