I hope you’re a sparkler, not a squib. Here’s news of a Brighton Christmas show, a ticket warning for Emily Barker’s London show, home-made December music and I’m curating a festival stage in 2013.
CHRISTMAS 2012: FINAL MILNE SHOW
I’m very pleased to announce Disobedience: Chris T-T Sings A.A. Milne (Christmas 2012 edition) is confirmed for Saturday 22nd December at 2pm, in the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, BRIGHTON. The updated concert will include exclusive one-off new Milne songs and other festive treats. The café will be open from 2pm selling tea & cakes and the show starts 2.30pm. It’s seated, unplugged and as always suitable for all ages.

FACEBOOK PAGE – let us know you’re coming.
My plan is to make this the final Milne show. Not 100% but fairly certain: we’ve got a very busy 2013, moving on. I originally said I’d only perform Disobedience on a real piano, in certain settings. Too often I’ve compromised that and enjoyed it less as a result. Anyway, come along and enjoy Disobedience as it should be, no microphones, on Brighton Quaker House’s beautiful baby grand, with some new bits added just this once. By the way, it’s perfect for older kids, just getting into live music or performance, as well as much older people, in their 70s and beyond, who particularly love it (especially men), so bring Grandpa. A great break from last minute shopping.
Sales pitch over.
LONDON UNION CHAPEL: ALMOST SOLD OUT
If you’re planning to come to Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo’s big London show on November 21, which I’m performing at, do not wait until the day. This gig is more than 90% sold and will sell out, so you need to get tickets soon.

NEW MUSIC IN DECEMBER
As usual, I’m working on a bunch of homemade tunes for December, so watch out for an exclusive ‘pay what you want’ EP next month, as well as the proper new band recordings that are taking shape right now. And if you downloaded Disobedience from Bandcamp in the past year, keep an eye on your inbox for a sneaky thank-you gift in MP3 form.
UNCIVILISATION 2013: CURATING THE MUSIC STAGE
I’m also delighted to announce I will curate the Saturday evening music for Dark Mountain’s magical UNCIVILISATION FESTIVAL 2013 next summer. I’ll put together a fantastically uncivil selection of artists to perform unplugged on the Music Stage. Details in the new year.
OK that’s it for now, have a brilliant Bonfire Night and enjoy the autumn evenings. Keep warm. x
