Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for supporting my music this month. I have had some great gigs on my November 2016 Poland Tour and I am looking forward to my next events.  On 17th December 2017 , I am set to play with Katy Carr and the Aviators at the Palladium in Warsaw, Poland – www.palladium.art.pl –  Please keep an eye on this website for gig information as this gig is still being confirmed… 

I am currently organising a UK tour so if you have any interesting events or you would like me to come to your community – please keep me informed!

This month I have played some fantastic events on Polish Radio,  a special concert in Torun, Poland to honour the late General Elżbieta Zawacka ‘Zo’ – the only lady to jump with the elite Polish Parachute regiment – (Polish equivalent of SAS in WWII) the Cichociemni…

 I also performed on the History Book of the Year awards on Polish TVP1 and a wonderful concert in the town of Tarnow in Poland. Below I am sharing you pictures and the shows :) Paying homage to Hanka Ordonowna – the incredible 1930s Polish singer below by singing her famous song – Miłość Ci wszystko wybaczy :)
