We got a review from our show in Bewdley UK ... "Anecdotes between songs were highlights of this show. Lynne really wanted the crowd to feel part of her journey, drawing them in with her smile and letting them know that whilst the liquid demons that accompany a musician’s life on the road were part of her past the future is going to be fun and music will give her the opportunity to talk from the heart and speak from the soul." Read the entire review here.

For those who follow me on Twitter and / or Instagram you might be aware that I've been writing a haiku every Friday morning for the past several years and posting them with the tag #frida #haiku. At the urging of a few readers I have chosen 52 haikus and paired them up with photos taken on various adventures around the globe (with one special guest photo from Lyndell Montgomery) - and with the help of Gina Marin who laid everything out for me - I now have a book called friday haiku !!! The book is now available for purchase in the online store.
