Remembrance Sunday 2013 – Singing at the Model Boat Show


Singing at the Model Boat Show, Warwickshire Exhibition Centre on Remembrance Sunday

You may be forgiven for thinking that the gentleman to the right is controlling me, but I SWEAR to you, there is a pool full of RC boats right in front of me…

I had a wonderful time at the show and saw some incredible model boats made from scratch and kits. I have to confess though, I am always more interested in the detailing; such as making things look old and rusty, or the little people that help scale the model. So as well as a video of one of my songs, I am posting some images I took. I am love with my macro lens, can you tell? Thank you to everyone who listened in the crowd and over the tannoy speakers, the well wishers and organisers that made me feel so welcome. Singing White Cliffs of Dover straight after the 2 minute silence was the most moving, nerve wracking and poignant thing I have done this year.
