In 2013 I started collaborating with artist Anne Proctor http://anneproctor.wordpress.com/ Through Anne I met the good folk at Willy Nillie in Chester le Street http://willynillie.org.uk/
In 2013 I got to meet and work with Karen Mitchell at The Ballarat Studios and was involved in the 40th anniversary of Iron Press organised by Peter Mortimer http://www.ironpress.co.uk/index.html
In 2014 Karen, Pete Mortimer and I present Free as a Bard, an evening of spoken word and music at Whitley Bay’s Jam Jar Cinema on Sunday February 2nd http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/search/searchPerformance.asp?performance_id=88111&sid=
The evening features poets W N Herbert, Eileen Jones and singer/songwriter Ditte Elly.
In 2014 I strongly suspect I will be working with Anne and Willy Nillie again.
