Hello Music lovers, how is 2023 treating you all?
As 2023 draws to a close, I want to say thank you for all your support. It’s been a blast playing loads of festivals with my band, and touring with The Waeve and Stornoway. I’m just about to board a plane for some gigs in Athens, Greece with Camille O’Sullivan, and I can’t wait for some sun!
My band has been out and about in 2023 supporting the launch of the new album, “Bonito” (Reviewed here for Jazzwise) was fab. Lots of smiles in the mix of world music influences, and we look forward to playing for you in 2024. If you are a promoter and want to book the band please email email@example.com. There are more tours in the pipeline for The Waeve, and I’m looking forward to hitting the road again in February 2024 with Stornoway.
Next up for the band
February 3rd Bramber and Beeding Village Hall, near Steyning W Sussex

It’s been fab touring with The Waeve (Graham Coxon – guitarist from Blur) and Rose Elinor Dougall’s playing their exquisite new album, and looks like more gigs to come with them in 2024.
It’s been a busy time, and I’m recovering from our great gig at Love Supreme 2022, and getting ready to launch my new album ‘Bonito’ in September 2022! The CD will be available to buy at gigs before the official release, and you can preorder by emailing me.
The new album ‘Bonito’ is officially being released in September 2022 but you can buy hard copies from me at the gigs.

Review of Travels with Charlotte Glasson:
“A touch of the Hot Club De France, a hint of Coltrane, echoes of McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, a theme that comes could have come from the Jazz Messengers – all jazz history is there! Great fun”
