This year’s Aortas Songwriting Workshop was at the end of May: three days at beautiful Redfield with some old friends and some new ones. A lot of gorgeous songs were written. I even found time to rehearse with The Straw Horses, the folk band I’ve started singing in – but
Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I blogged. This is the reason: I was a bit distracted towards the end of last year. Sorry guys. I’m still playing solo/duo gigs though – check out the calendar for upcoming dates for Corinne Lucy. Love from Corinne.
I’m in the middle of a summer of gigs. Procrastinating getting ready for tonight’s gig by blogging (classic) and considering what to wear to Camp Bestival, where I have a slot on August 2nd. And two more slots on August 3rd. Yikes. It’ll be my first proper festival: Sinead O’Connor,
In the run up to Vinterlejr, the songwriting workshop in Denmark (previously mentioned here), I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Gigging Behind A Bus Stop
Just a quick post about the gig last night. It was at Behind The Bus Stop, a bar slash restaurant behind a bus stop (no, really?) in Northampton. I played there last month on a Friday night and there were literally five people in there. And then two of them left.

Today was the Northampton Music Festival – four stages spread through Northampton’s town centre with all kinds of bands and artists playing all day long. I love this kind of festival, where normal streets are taken over and coloured in and made exciting. My set was just before the shops
It’s going to be an extremely busy summer for me, you guys. As a musician, obviously all I really want to do is perform. It’s what I think about when I’m brushing my teeth, and when I’m going round the supermarket, and when I’m eating crisps. But on the other
