New creative project on the go!

I thought I’d share with you the growing seedling that is my latest creative project.

It actually began a couple of years ago when a client asked me to learn some Scottish folk songs for a family reunion at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair, of all places! I realised how much I love folk song, but particularly Scottish folk song. With many of my in-laws hailing from the Borders, including the breaktaking scenary of a sheep farm near Galashiels, my interest has contiued to grow. This year, with a little more time on my hands, I decided to record some of the songs that I’d learnt for that particular London event.

Since then I’ve added to my collection and it has started to evolve into an album. Currently on the song list are Will ye go lassie, go?, Eriskay love lilt and My love is like a red, red rose. Other British folk song are on the wish list and in the pipeline, but I seem do seem to have gravitated towards the highlands!

Here’s a sneak peek of My love is like a red, red rose, recorded and mixed by Jake Rousham, mastered by James Livett and ambience samples from freesound.org by by juskiddink and theneedle.tv.

The question is – birdsong or no? …and what’s your favourite folk song?

Jennifer is an incredible singer. We had her with Cafe Society to play at my 40th and it was everything I could dream off- they played beautiful music, and brought a very good vibe to the party. All the guests talked about how great they were, with a repertoire of very nice songs which we loved to listen to, but at the same time allowing us to keep the conversation going. I can’t recommend her enough.

Jenny sang beautifully at our wedding in August 2019! She moved many members of the congregation to tears with her amazing singing. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend her. Each time we meet up with friends and family that were there, they all comment on how amazing her singing was and how much they enjoyed it! She sang a Maori love song perfectly - commented the relatives from New Zealand! X

Jenny was the absolute highlight of our wedding ceremony. We picked some tricky songs and she had the whole audience joining in at the chorus. Luckily they didn't join at all points because it gave everyone a chance to hear her beautiful voice as well! I can't recommend highly enough.

Jenny was amazing from the moment I enquired about her playing the violin at our wedding ceremony. So quick to respond, helpful, friendly, flexible & professional, and was able to recommend songs and even learnt a new song for the exit music. I was so confident that she had everything under control which was invaluable and it was something on the day that I knew I just didn’t have to worry about. Jenny is so talented and it really added to the ceremony, I am so pleased that I found her! Thank you so so much!

Jenny sang at our wedding - her music set the tone and made for a truly special experience. She has a beautiful voice, is very easy to work with, and worked seamlessly with our (very exacting) venue to get everything just right. Thank you Jenny!
