It has been a dream of mine to play at festivals for as long as I can remember. The last few weeks have been amazing. With Matthew Halsall and The Gondwana Orchestra we played at Ghent Jazz Festival, London Jazz Cafe with Dwight Trible and then Pori66 in Finland. They are such amazing musicians and even when a few band members missed flights, they still pulled it out of the bag with amazing performances..incredible! I managed to meet Gregory Porter and even sat on the stage during his performance. Caught Lauryn Hill and Joss Stone as well as numerous other bands. It has been a summer to remember. With lots of diverse events from playing for the Orient Express, graduations, corporate and beautiful weddings, I feel very lucky to be a harpist.
A busy but amazing few weeks
