Take a look at this! Prog The Forest - Great line up, diverse acts and all in aid of the World Land Trust, protecting the Rainforests from destruction. Whole day ticket is less than £20 - I can't think of a drawback....

Today I celebrated Simon J Foxley, one of the most inspiring teachers I have ever had the privilege of working with. Simon, and the CYM, set a giant ball rolling for me and for so many other kids too, and gave me countless invaluable tools with which to fashion keys to unlock every musical door. There's so many stories I'd love to share with you, and I will in due course, but for now I just want to pay tribute and say thank you to a truly visionary man who believed in the boundlessness of music, the joy, the communication, the word in each and every note. Everything I do today is shaped in some way by this unique learning experience, by this man, and gratitude does not come close. Let's celebrate! XXX ... See MoreSee Less

He must have been a fantastic teacher!! Such people are gold!!!!

His memory will live on whilst any of those he influenced and inspired still perform.

all hail the inspiring teachers! and we share the Morley College connection, their affordable adult education courses in musicianship, early music and more, taught by enthusiastic and experienced teachers, laid the foundations for DSCM!

CYM seems such a long time ago now (for me), and yes, truly inspiring.

Beautiful dedication

Thank you Colin Straw for this photo from St Mike's Without on Saturday! I played a very different concert on this evening, two sets of pieces I rarely play, and two I've never played before either. This photo is from 'Abbey' (current working title) which is for solo acoustic cello and will form part of my new acoustic album whenever I get a moment to record these pieces. It's so new I even needed the music, far out. 😎 Thank you to St Mike's for welcoming me again, and to all you who joined me and I look forward to playing for you soon! Jo x ... See MoreSee Less

I miss you, my Lady!!!!

You know how much I love acoustic... I would be over the moon to hear you playing this concert. Shall we plan something in Liège ? May be combine an acoustic performance and in a second part the December quartet ? It's only a crazy idea xxxxx

Very expressive image! I haven't seen you in a concert for over 2 years, only in that "livestream" from Radio and I remember with sadness that before the pandemic it was announced that you will come to us in the country, in Brasov😔

Really enjoyed the concert and was great to meet you in person 🙂

Was sorry to have missed this performance but missing new works….not good

It was a great concert and a wonderful evening. Thank you for the privilege of being there and hearing these new pieces first hand. X😘

clearly it was a very special evening, photo is so evocative!

Loved the piece!
