Windrush Day at Soho House.
I had the honour of telling my father’s story, as part of the Windrush Day acknowledgements in Birmingham.
My Jamaican born father, who came to the UK in 1953, was of the so called Windrush Generation.
Supported by my guitarist, Clive Diviney, I ‘wove’ traditional and contemporary songs throughout my father’s journey, including my self-penned tribute to him, ‘Light of Love’.
This was a special, although emotional event! The audience was with me every step of the way! There’s something really wonderful about how we can connect with each other through storytelling 🙂
