1st February 2017

We have to announce that Vin is going to be having an operation around April time. This will severely disrupt his schedule in April, May and June, all of the concerts for these months will be moved on to later dates in the year or will be cancelled.  This is not emergency surgery but Vin has found that although he can sing like a bird he is not able to follow his hobbies such as gardening and hiking in the way that he used to. His doctors are hoping that following the op he will have much more energy and a better quality of life. His tour in March from 4th - 14th WILL GO AHEAD and he will be fully fit for these concerts. All the changes for April - June can be seen on this website on the Gigs page as they are made.

Thank you to the festival, club and venue organisers for their help and understanding.
