Sun, Sea & Sappho Women 2013

 
I've just got back from The International Eressos Women's Festival in Lesvos, Greece.
 
What a great time I had:
 
On Tuesday I performed at the Aeolian Village Poolside Bar, and then on Wednesday an impromptu performance, encouraged by Jazz & Blues performer Nicky Mitchell who was hosting at Roots Bar, followed by the highlight of the week for me which was opening the Fashion Show, on the Festival Main Stage in the open cinema in the centre of Skala Eressos.
 
It was a fantastic event, the place was packed to the gunnells with gorgeous women who gave me an incredible reception and were really in a party mood. Eressos Villagers were treated to an awesome rendition of Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You as everybody present joined in. If there had been a roof we would definitely have raised it!
 
Following my performance was the hugely enjoyable Fashion Show where locals and visitors strutted their stuff up and down the catwalk modelling clothes, jewellery and accessories mainly from the local shops and businesses who sponsor the event. The obvious exception to this was the inclusion of designs from British underwear company, FOCX. The event was excellently compered by Lucy Davina Checkley.
 
Thanks to everyone who contributed to my amazing holiday:  Faye, DJ XXRP, DJ Wendy, DJ Heidi, Nicky Mitchell, Amity (loved your show on Sunday night) Vicky from Roots and all the lovely Skala Womens Rock Group and Animal Welfare Organisation.
 
Thanks too to Joanna from Sappho Travel, without whom the festival wouldn't happen.
 
Hopefully I haven't forgotten anybody - If I have - apologies I love you too!
 
Finally, at the risk of sounding like the recipient of an Oscar, I'd like to say thanks to my friend, supporter and travelling companion Mandy, and to our little holiday friendship group which included people from Leeds & Worcester . Thanks Guys - it was a complete blast!
