I’ve not done an update for a bit so here is one. Few things to report.
First off I’m in residency at Huddersfield Uni from now until November which is really exciting. I’m there to write a new piece for the 66 speaker surround sound set up they have for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. I met with the other 4 women composers taking part in the programme a couple of weeks ago and everyone was so nice and supportive. Really happy to have this opportunity and can’t wait to write the piece. Read more about this here –
Few gigs coming up soon –
- 21st March – The Slowest Lift in Arcade Coffee, Huddersfield
- 26th March – solo guitar show at The Golden Lion, Todmorden
- 13th April – The Slowest Lift and Kelly Jayne Jones at The Roundy, Cork
- 14th April – The Slowest Lift and Kelly Jayne Jones at Jigsaw, Dublin

Last bit of news for now is I got asked to write about working for Rhythm Time and how working with music and young people has had an impact on my musical practice for The Wire mag. It’s part of an issue called ‘The Great Learning’ and I suggest you get a copy because it’s really interesting.
