This is where I'm keeping the archived updates to this site since June 2013.
Been pretty busy of late work-wise - but still managed to get to TZ, Morley Folk and even to Rochdale in the past few weeks.
Also learning two poems - one about love and one about fracking - so, keeping with a random mix!
Will share the details of those soon and 2014 looks promising, with a couple of gigs in February.
Meanwhile - Seasons Greetings one and all!
Went to Queenies (Lawrence Batley Theatre) this evening. Great standard and variety all round including our Talking Zebras 20 minute spot.
Looking forward to our TZ Meeting on Saturday.
Well, I've been and gone and done it - you'll find 6 recordings out there in YouTube Land!
All a bit nerve-racking and not ultra-professional - but would love a few subscribers if you're feeling kind...

Talking Zebras first birthday concert went well - videos to follow on their web page.
Talking Zebra's Birthday Concert is this coming Saturday - looking forward to co-hosting our event. Tickets only £4/£3 - why not come along?
Fern Hill now learnt - I think! :)
Morley Folk was as enjoyable as ever last week.
Had a great evening at Rochdale on Sunday - very welcoming and entertaining group.
Spoken Weird 7 in Halifax looks promising as ever on Thursday (hoping I can make it!)
Plus, we're in the middle of a busy, fun month at Cleckheaton's
Enjoyed Talking Zebras again yesterday. Have started learning Fern Hill.
This event looks interesting, but unfortunately I won't be able to go:
"100 Poets" pre-rugby match event in
Headingley on Friday 8/11
One further poem added to the repertoire.
Thinking about learning "Fern Hill" - in which case, it might take me some time...
Also looking forward to taking part in the "100 Poets" pre-rugby match event in Headingley next week.
Three further poems added to the repertoire (it's been a while!)
With the new list of the top ten from "Poetry Please" out, I'll be trying to learn those not already learnt.
David will be performing as part of this event at Morley Lit Fest on
Thursday 10th October thanks to his friends from Morley Folk Club.
He's also looking forward to taking his turn at the Poetry Jam at Marsden Jazz Festival on
Sunday 13th October.
After that, well, who knows, but he's toying with the idea of the YouTube thing and going back to learning one a week, so watch this space I guess!
