Possibly judging songs for Eurovision is not everyone’s idea of a good time. But for me, I love it.

Yes I am that person who watches the whole Competition from start to finish armed with a piece of paper and a score sheet in my hand making notes.

It’s amazing to hear the music in central London in December when you go into the underground or out to do the Christmas shopping ...it’s a real treat.  So I’m reminding everyone to go out with a pocket full of change to share amongst the many buskers.

I’ve just re-surfaced after a week of intense nervous excitement from rehearsals in Aldeburgh that led up to the first night of  ‘The Drummer Boy of Waterloo’ our opera that premiered at Jubilee Hall last weekend. That is the same hall that Benjamin Britten premiered his work..... so no pressure then.

Details about the upcoming premiere of my opera ‘The Drummer Boy of Waterloo’ can be seen here on the Classical Source website’....

It was so great to be in the audience at the Festival Hall this week for Steve Earles new tour with The Dukes. He was on fine form and he played a really generous set of around thirty songs, many of them from his new Blues album 'Terraplane'.
