enews April: Collaboration !

Collaboration ! That’s the theme for the next couple of months…lots of exciting events coming up!

In April, I’ll playing a few shows together with Isle of Man songstress Christine Collister. We played together last year, we both enjoyed it so much that decided we would see if we could make this an annual event.

Christine first came to public attention in 1986 as the singer of the theme song for the BBC's television adaptation of Fay Weldon's book The Life and Loves of a She-Devil.

In 1985 she became a permanent member of the Richard Thompson Band, as a backing vocalist, and also duetting with Thompson on many songs. After four years, and several world tours with Thompson, she spent the next seven years working with singer, songwriter and guitar player, Clive Gregson. During this period, the couple released five albums, and she’s recorded many solo albums since.

In June, I’ll be teaming up with award-winning singer/songwriter Darren Coggan for two special Alone Together concerts in Sydney, and Wollongong.

Ive known Darren from the beginning of his music career in the nineties. In recent years, Darren has expanded into musicals and screen, having toured Australia extensively as actor/singer in numerous major productions, and currently as a presenter on Sydney Weekender for Network 7.

Darren has sold out the The Sydney Opera House concert hall in his highly acclaimed production Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story.
