There was barely time to draw breath before I was off to Corby. Head of Snakes and I had written 9 new songs for the Deep Roots Tall Trees second year celebration with the Choir, on the theme of New Town Pioneers. I rehearsed with everyone at the Core, and stayed with my friend Ros in her lovely Water Tower home in among the trees where one morning I saw a kite rise up out of the bushes and soar into the sky, owls hooted during the night, and a rabbit sat on the lawn in the misty morning sunshine.

The tech day and night passed and we prepared and got our finery on and performed to a huge house of Corby friends and family, and everything went wonderfully, the songs will be up on sound cloud sometime soon and the website with last year's work is below.
So now its onto the album, finishing that, and the Christmas shows with Mari Wilson in London and on my own, in New York.
The news is that I'm starting my own record label, encouraged my Mari Wilson, and with a superb team of people helping me. Its called Kristalyn Records, at Mari's suggestion, my sisters were Kristina and Carolyn, so I think the label has two massive guardian angels, right there. And as always Ernest is looking over my shoulder to make sure I don;t do anything too feral, and my first release will be Hard Rain, my new album, produced by the talented and delightful Simon Wallace, on March 3rd. I'll be posting pre-booking potentials in early 2014. But for the now, enjoy the rest of autumn, and stay warm! From inside a very thick and woollen sweater, salut! Barb xxx
