Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Watching Joan

…last night I went to a Joan Armatrading concert. That woman is amazing! 65 years old and she rocked and strummed her audience to their feet! And hearing lots of old tracks, that you recognise, but didn’t realise were hers. I loved it! And I can’t quite believe she played in our little dorpie! What a treat! She did a lovely journey through her albums, bringing out enough of the familiar stuff to get feet tapping and singing along; and some of her lesser known stuff, which was stunning. She then also shared a pictorial journey through her career, I think many of us in the audience swallowed hard, seeing her with Ahmed Khathadra and Nelson Mandela. A really wonderful night! If you can get to a show, she is still playing Durban and JHB, then do!

Jesse Clegg was her support act, and I must say he did a great job, and really seems to be growing up nicely!
