A Message from John:
“It’s been a year for all of us, challenging, emotional, up and down, a rollercoaster. It has also enflamed our united beliefs in equality and creativity and the need to remind others that We Shall Not Be Removed. Connecting with my music online has been a different experience that has kept me going, not to mention the kindness, support & kinship WSNBR has provided me. I am delighted to have been asked to host this event, to reflect, to look forward and to share the music I’ve been working on this year. Let’s raise the virtual roof in salute to the many creative voices that joined forces to fight against Ableism. I’ll be previewing tracks from my new album (sung & signed), as well as singing (and signing) a few old favourites written on the odd street protest ‘here n’ there’. To add to the top of my tree, I’ll be catching up with a few friends too. It’ll be just like ‘Christmas with Val Doonican’’ but without the jumpers…. So, nothing like it really!
I’ll provide the music, you bring your own egg nog or tipple of choice, nibbles (mine’s a sausage on a stick obviously), you are welcome to add a little of the festive vibe by decorating yerself or zoom window (It will be audio described). It will make the night if you’d join me “ .
