Watch out for daughter Iona backing Laura Mvula on Later Live with Jools Holland on Tuesday evening 9th April. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ry2h4 She just happened to mention it in passing as is her wont. There is an extended version on Friday evening April 12th. Life is all go for her at the moment, and after flying back from a music festival in Texas, rehearsing all week, driving up to a personal gig in Scotland and rolling in at 5am to spend Easter Sunday with the family, she has been performing in Holland with the band. Among other things they are booked in for the Isle of Wight festival, and Glastonbury on the famous Pyramid Stage, same as the Rolling Stones!
By comparison, my star billing at the Feathers Inn in Aberaeron giving a slide show talk about the Long Horse Ride to the Ceredigion Bridleways Group last Thursday rather pales into insignificance. However I am making a serious foray into the realms of journalism by writing my first remunerated article for a magazine in China. The commercial side of my was galvanised into life when they stated they wanted 3000 words by the end of next week. No way Jose unless the renminbi are on the table. Onwards and upwards.
Stop Press on Wednesday: Link below to Later Live with Jools Holland episode I, featuring Iona and legs with Laura. I think only available for a week so hurry hurry hurry if you want to see it.
Green Garden at 4.55 minutes in, and closing programme at 26.15 when Iona gets to plink her harp.
