Sabar Drumming etc

Sorry as usual it’s been so long since I posted a blog here!

I have had a very difficult year having lost a very close and dear friend and various other things. At last, I’m feeling more like my old self.

We are currently in the middle of our usual Sabar Drumming tour with our teacher Modou Diouf. If you’re interested in seeing about that you can find us at Sabar Drumming Uk.

We’ve been doing workshops and performances around the UK. Here’s a photo from Suffolk where we were recently.

I’m doing a gig in my own right on October 20th and hope to start getting back into my own songwriting soon!

Sorry for long gap in posting!

Well it’s been ages – I’m so hopeless at blogging nowadays it seems Facebook has taken over which is very lazy to just post short updates.

We’re looking forward to our usual summer of sabar drumming and touring with Modou Diouf in the UK plus a few festivals in our camper van.

I’ve been playing my guitar but not written anything new recently due to various issues but I hope to get going again soon!

I recently got that awful Aussie flu and it laid me low for nearly three weeks but I’m finally getting over it now!

Chandra Moon Trio plus Flamenco Loco May 24th Bristol!

I’m delighted to let you know we’re playing a gig on May 24th at The Khan downstairs at Falafel King, 6 Cotham Hill, Bristol, BS6 6LF at 8pm.

Paddy Uglow will kick things off with a couple of songs then Chandra Moon Trio will play a set of original songs and after a short break we’ll have the exciting Flamenco Loco accompanied by a professional Flamenco dancer.

Those who’ve attended before know what a lovely evening in a great venue it always is and for those who are hungry there’s brilliant and reasonably priced food upstairs in Falafel King.

If you want a seat, get there by 8pm as it fills up quite fast! £6 on the door.

Do tell your friends or share the Facebook link! Chandra Moon Trio and Flamenco Loco at The Khan!

New Songwriting Group in Bristol

When I first started songwriting I was helped enormously by a fantastic songwriting group run by the brilliant Patrick Duff. The group offered a space to have a go, overcome your nerves, learn to use a microphone and get feedback on your songs in a safe non-judgemental space.

The group wound up some years ago and I’ve missed it so much I’ve decided to start a new group for women songwriters here in Bristol. I’m no Patrick Duff but I feel confident we can run a really supportive and encouraging group for women!

New Video! Before You Were Born.

I’m back from an amazing tour round the UK with Modou Diouf our Senegalese Sabar teacher. We’ve done workshops all over the place and performed at three great venues with his UK drum band Jappo.

In between drumming and performing I’ve had a couple of gigs of my own material one at Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August and one the other day at a local community event.

I’ve got a new song brewing at last and feel ready to get going again!

I’ve also released a new video which I hope you enjoy which Paddy Uglow recorded and produced of my trippy song Before You Were Born!
