'Singing and talking' Well mostly singing, with a little bit of talking. Maybe. You can talk too if you like. Well not over the top of her singing. That would be rude. More like, a conversation. A group discussion if you like. Not a therapy session. It's not an audience participation kind of show or anything. Let's just say if you would like to hear her sing, that will be happening, and there will be some kind of speaking going on too. Andrew Worboys will be playing with her...so to speak, so he will add a level of sophistication to the performance thank goodness. There won't be any show tunes I'm afraid, but it's quite an eclectic bunch of songs. A mix of well and not so well known numbers that she and Andrew have fiddled with. In a respectful way. Should be fun to see if the old girl can still kick it in the...
