2016 in a nutshell…

A complete and utter shambles. I could end the blog post right there. Whilst 2016 is certainly not the worst year on record as some people have claimed – at least the UK population was not in the middle of a famine, plague or wartime this year – it’s been 12 months full of the unexpected,  with surprises and shocks around every corner. I was intending to write this post a few weeks ago, but since then the most morbid events of the year have occurred, all ironically timed around the usually cheery festive period. 2016 will forever be remembered … Continue reading  2016 in a nutshell…

My fantasy gig list for 2017!
