Since June 2020, myself and my wife, Lesley, have been producing an on-line programme where I talk with other songwriters who also perform some of their songs. We have featured local writers here in the NW such as George Borowski, Paolo Fuschi, Robbie Vincent, Chloe Jones, Karl Walsh and Heidi Dewhirst, as well as UK writers from further afield including Trevor 'BabaJack' Steger, and Steve Ferbrache (from The Achievers) We're also linking up with writers from other parts of the world, who are facing exactly the same problems. Joel Jorgenson, from Nashville, and Tim Pourboix & Emily Frembgen, both from New York, have all been on the show as well as Rachelle Coba a great blues singer, guitarist and writer based in Miami. I also talked to Canadian writer Carly Thomas and Australian blues musician, Fiona Boyes.
Songwriters write songs to be performed and I hope that 'Talking Songs' is helping to get their music out there in a virtual way Come and join us - every Tuesday 18.30 GMT
