Saturday 27 February: Birthday Celebration Part 2: LONDON: WINTER TALES

I didn't get much sleep due to the high level of sugars consummed the night before...so Saturday was a slow day...pretty much open presents and went back to bedand time to get ready for :
LONDON: WINTER TALES - a special and intimate evening of readings and music.

That was in a great venue called the Harrisson, it took place in the basement top start with the acts were poetry and spoken words, all very different styles. Simon also played a fantastic Hi-Reciprocity set  which went down very well (one song accompanied by Liza) , followed by Rosie Lugosie and two more bands :Black Volition and You The Living
Other performers were :Joanna Vale, Bradley James, Steev Burgess, Danni Antagonist, Carya Gish

She recently curated Voices of the Winter Hearth, an immersive mixed media exhibition blending folklore with the iconic imagery of a Dark Ages winter. She also collaborated on the exhibition Tales from the Autumn House in 2014, providing poetry and prose to the artwork by artist Renaud C. Haslan. She is inspired by the forest and seasonal change, always looking for the mysteries in Nature, and the powerful impact it has upon our lives.
