As 2018 draws to a close, I reflect on what has been a really fantastic year working with Jane McDonald on two series of ‘Jane and Friends’, playing guitar on her hit album, ‘Cruising with Jane MCDonald’ and on her sold out ‘Celebrate 20’ tour all over the UK, culminating in a spectacular Xmas show at Leeds First Direct Arena for 5000 fans last week. This show was also filmed for future release. This, along with working with Jason Donovan and the Climax Blues Band, has made 2018 an eclectic, exciting mix - it’s been amazing.
2019 promises to be busy again, but more on that in my new year update as over Xmas there are two brand new episodes of ‘Jane and Friends’ being broadcast, one on 22nd Dec at 9pm on Channel 5 and a New Years Eve special also on 5, at 9pm running right through until midnight. Welcome in 2019 with us!
It's nearly CHRISTMAS! Whoop whoop! Hope you'll be watching "Jane McDonald at Christmas" Saturday 22nd December at 9pm, "Jane: 12 Cruises of Christmas", Saturday 22nd December at 10pm and "Jane McDonald & Friends NYE Special" on New Years Eve at 9pm all on @channel5_tv pic.twitter.com/WwXuT72XZB— Jane McDonald (@TheJaneMcDonald) December 17, 2018
Finally, I’d like to thank all of the artists, musicians and crew I’ve worked with this year - it’s been a real privilege to be part of the team. Happy Xmas and have a great New Year!
See you in 2019. 🎸😀
