Hi there people of the world, specifically, you, reading this. I hope these words find you well. I just wanted to let you know that I am not dead, still here, working hard and creating a family, but still here.
I also wanted to tell you that I have been approached to write music for a new Shakespeare play which will be performed in March 2015 at the Brideswell Theatre, Blackfriars, London. I know, I know, Shakepsearre hasn’t had any new plays for ages, but this one is not entirely written by the bard fellow; it has been written and is being directed by Jane Jones and focuses on the importance of the women in Shakepseare’s life, the story is told by Ann Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife.
So, I am actually in the play, I’m the Minstrel and with bouzouki in tow I will be treading the boards, with accompinement from the ever faithful Lee Danger Cooper, who played with me on my last EP and has been gigging with me ever since.
The music we are creating is in my style, a little more contemporary than Shakespeare would have been used but hopefully he would have approved, purists will be relieved to hear I am not altering his words, having the most famous playwright in history as the lyricist for my new music is quite exciting!
What’s more I will be recording the music as a soundtrack and releasing it some way or another.
Exciting times ahead, but for now, toodle plop.
