Summer's Quarterly Blog update didn't happen. I wasn't in the best of places; struggling with significantly demanding home 'repairs', while desperately trying to keep my busking/gigging wheels on track. LR blog update linked in the photo below, details more personal insight & highlights! 🥰
What I WILL stress here, is that I LOVE WHAT I DO, and the reason I do, is down to 'the many' who engage with me during performance; whether street busking, festivals, or gigs - 'you' apparently receive something 'you' consider worthy of appreciation, respect, delight, applause, amusement, emotional release, energy, encouragement, affirmation, or to be simply entertained.
Therefore I'm delighted to commit another year, at least fight for one, to continue this fabulous journey of discovery, contribution, and symbiotic partnership between Performer & Audience. Wherever, whenever, and however. THANK YOU ALL for making much of this possible! Plucky 💖 tphx

This pic is from Easter's Sat gig @ IntuUK shopping centre in Milton Keynes where I performed with Full PA. You can tell by my game-face, Plucky means business! 'Twas a fabulous day, superb having so many kind & generous locals stop a while enjoying a slice of my 4+ hr. non-stop live performance of Originals & Covers. Relaxing in the sunshine within the circle around me; in deckchairs Intu had laid-on, sat on the walling, or on the AstroTurf eating pizza! Just chillin', while the non-stop river of life streamed on by, going about it's business through the malls. Just PERFECT! tphx
3 videos uploaded to YouTube in April: Drovers' Roads; my 3rd, is a tribute to Highlander & local legend Cameron Ormiston, who's sister married a Newfie. Here, I'm wearing the sweater my father brought me, from a fabulous holiday he spent with his best friend Cam; meeting family & friends there!
Hurts To Say Goodbye; is Plucky's 1st attempt at songwriting, and mother's requested I play it at her funeral. It could equally apply to Cam given our loss, but just as he would've been 89, on 7th April, another old friend, Ronnie Gall, passed away aged 89 the very day I published it on 17 Apr.
Die Tryin' (drop the 'gees'); my 24th, was published & dedicated to my mother on her 78th birthday, 26 Apr. SHINDIG, song 25, is very different, but going down very well! There's plenty more to follow. To view, or subscribe: Plucky's YouTube Channel Cheers! tphx
