Having trained in, and been involved in, all areas of the performing arts; dance, music, drama, television, film, production, direction, and writing for stage and screen, for many years, I finally took the step, almost a decade ago, to become a freelance independent. Being your own employer is a hard road, but I wouldn't change it for the world. Every day brings a challenge, every challenge you overcome brings a day of happiness. It's not about the dollar, it's about the creative process, and the journey you go on with others, to give flight to imagination, new concepts, and new beginnings.

Some decades ago, I saw Randy Newman in Concert, just him and a trusty grand piano, so it was a real treat, years later, to see him in a similar intimate parlour-room setting, just him and a trusty grand piano, performing his back catalogue together with a few from his recent album Dark Matter.

The amount of energy Gareth Cooper exudes in the first ‘Heavy Metal’ five minutes of this performance is remarkable. One wonders how he’ll ever carry on, if he’ll survive the remainder of the show. But, thankfully, he does.

This project is to cover experiences in Edinburgh and beyond. Reviews and experiences at festivals and other events built around the arts
