And the answer? Not two gigs, but three! Get your diaries out....
First up is an evening with the lovely Will Barratt, Live at the Pheasantry on Sunday 3rd April. I recorded a couple of songs on Will's gorgeous debut album, Confessions Of A Justified Sinner last year (which is well worth a listen and can be purchased here, if you haven't already). After a sell out launch gig at The Hippodrome last summer, Will returns to knock your socks off with a selection of songs both old and new. The evening will also feature the wonderful Nadim Naaman (Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd) and Jeremy Secomb, (Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd) with a live band led by the incredible Joe Davison. All this, and you can eat pizza at the same time. What's not to like?!
Next up is the hugely popular concert series, West End Fest at St Paul's Church, Covent Garden on Sunday, 15th May. In conjunction with The MadTrust, the latest evening will feature a stellar line up of West End performers who will be tackling their favourite songs from their favourite icons in their own, inimitable way. These gigs are always great fun and you can pat yourselves on the back for doing your bit for charity whilst we belt in your face, too!
The third gig is one for the Welshies among you! I will be disembarking from the Showboat for an evening in order to perform in the opening concert of the National Eisteddfod on Friday, July 29th. Fellow guests include Only Men Aloud, Gwawr Edwards and Caryl Hughes. It's sure to be a great evening and I'm very much looking forward to a flying visit to my homeland. I'll update you with ticket information when I have it.
Hope to see you there!

I'm absolutely thrilled that the Cotton Blossom has set sail from Sheffield's Crucible and will be docking at the New London Theatre for a limited run beginning April 9th. It was a privilege and pleasure to be a part of this production and I'm very much looking forward to sharing it with a new audience before very long.
Tickets went on sale at 10am this morning; check out our shiny new website, www.showboatmusical.co.uk for all the info you need to book!
