To celebrate IWD2018 I was joined by Philipa Iriving on vocals, we sang afew sonsg and  a version of my new song ‘Brave and Fearless Love’. I also put Healing Poet Fran Smith’s poem ‘Peace One Day’ to music, and she joined us to perform. It was a special gig, and my family came along to support us.
