Hello my friends,
To celebrate two gigs that honour the song and the singing, I am offering you a free download of my song 'The Caged Bird Sings'. This song's title is the shortened version of the real title 'I know why the caged bird sings', which is the same title of the poem and the autobiographical book by Maya Angelou. She was an amazing woman whose story inspires me.
My song is my story but it shares a resonance with the poem. I sing because it gives me life... it is my very breath. I would shrivel up and die without a song, without singing. For many years I felt like a caged bird... singing gives me wings. For that I am filled with gratitude.
So why don't you come along and sing with me and the gorgeous Kathryn Clements (my dear friend) at The Quiet Man Pub, in Racecourse Road, Flemington on WEDNESDAY 17TH AUGUST at 8pm. Our singing sessions have earned a reputation of being the 'best session around' with a warm welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, so we hope you can join us on Wednesday.
I also have an absolutely delightful gig coming up on FRIDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER @ The Skylark Room at BURRINJA (Upwey), 8.30pm (Doors open 6.30pm) with some gorgeous women and very talented songbirds -Janette Geri, Tracey Roberts and Jo Jo Smith.
We had an opportunity to do this gig at Albert Park a few months ago to a great response. There was a wonderful spirit of fun and musical camaraderie which flowed over to the audience. We all share the stage in a round robin format, adding to each other's offerings, adding to the joy... We can guarantee you a wonderful evening of entertainment and inspiration.
Thank you again for your support and I look forward to seeing you soon.
Love, Suzette x
