Since the latest leg of the Delia Derbyshire ‘Darlings’ Tour, I’ve had a bit of a rest from solo engagements whilst I’ve concentrated on the day jog – working full time with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra!
International organ virtuoso, Ian Tracey, and myself are managing to squeeze a cracker of a Christmas programme in on Thursday 19th December at 1.00 pm. Liverpool Philharmonic hall have engaged us to present a concert comprising of stalwarts of the trumpet and organ repertoire, some traditional carols with very fancy descants and some very surprising musical gifts. We are revisiting the traditional fayre, but looking at it through entirely new eyes. For those unfortunate enough not to make it, we will, of course, be recording it for commercial sale later in the year…
Oh, only a fiver too!
So far, this is the programme, but anything could happen….
