G-Live Gala Concert on 4 January
It was an honour to join Paul Jones, Jools Holland, Madeleine Bell, Paddy Milner and a host of other superbly talented musicians at G-Live Concert Hall the other night to support The Prostate Project. A great night of music for an important cause. Proceeds from the two sold-out concerts were donated to the charity.

Here's a gospel-blues track from an album I made in 1995. I arranged the song with a Joseph Spence feel. The sessions were produced by Colin Linden way back then. Use the code at the bottom of this email to get your mp3.
