My next storytelling show is Living By The Sea, a commission from Sidmouth FolkWeek. This sets me beside Paul Sartin, Benji Kirkpatrick and Saul Rose (aka Faustus), as well as a folk-style Greek chorus. We perform it on 8th and 9th August at Sidmouth.
I’m working with the fine pianist Olga Jegunova on an interesting new form of storytelling for adults and children. I tell traditional stories (well, my version of them) while Olga improvises around classical themes. We’ve developed a fantastic version of The Flaming Firebird, plus that old favourite Peter and the Wolf, and we’re now working on some other stories. Do get in touch if you’re interested in booking us. Watch our video.
I have a solo version of Human Cargo – he speaks, he sings! – which is available. Looking further ahead, I am developing a spoken word project which will be really, really scary.
