Shouty McShouty from Shoutington!

I visited my local library yesterday to return some books and Grace's book caught my eye as I was walking out.

I'm one of the people Grace describes in the book, someone who loved Edwyn's music but I wasn't a dedicated follower. I have often wondered why I hadn't heard any other records by Edwyn after the fantastic single 'Girl Like You' over the airwaves.

I'm halfway through the book today, much to the annoyance of my family as there is a mountain of housework…

One handed guitar

My husband Neil had a very severe stroke 1 year ago and he has been left with similar difficulties to Edwyn.I,Kathryn his wife,have nearly finished the book Grace wrote and can identify with so much she has written and I am now about to read it to Neil.We have both watched the documentary and have got a great deal of encouragement from it.Neil loved playing his many guitars with a group of amateur friends and has just been made an amazing one handed guitar by a great friend who makes…

Late entry from Latitude!!

Hi Edwyn and Grace,

Just want to say, “Thank you so much” for your book reading show at Latitude last year. I wanted to speak up at the session to praise your performances, but I didn’t try to, because I too suffer aphasia. Your story is so similar…

Great gig in Belfast

Just wanted to say how much everyone enjoyed the gig in the Black Box in Belfast, grown men were shedding tears! It was a very special night and will be one we will all remember. And it was great to listen to Edwyn and Grace at the book reading beforehand also, very funny and moving in equal measure. We hope you will come back to Belfast again soon!

Big fan of OJ in the 80's, Rip It Up is the song that retains wonderful memories from those times. My partner, Dave and I were 'an item' back in the day at the tender age of 15 but went our separate ways after school ended. However, 25 years later we are back together through the wonder of the internet(!) and still have fond memories of 'our song'. The children bought me 'Falling and Laughing' for Christmas and I have devoured every word. Massive respect to the wonderful Grace and of course to… Continue

a long time ago....

.... I bought the "Poor Boy" single that just came out then. It must have been the only one in Switzerland. I liked it a lot so from then on I bought all the Orange Juice singles and LPs (the happy dolphin is still my favourite cover - I put it in a frame).

Then - I think it was in 1987 - you, Edwyn, finally made it to Switzerland for a concert in Schaffhausen. You probably won't remember it as the venue was small (the Domino) and there were not more than 30 people there. But I loved it.… Continue

What is my Role?

Dear Edwyn,



I've been a fan of your music since hearing 'falling and laughing' - nearly thirty years ago! Well, if I say that listening to the little snatch of 'What is my role?' was as thrilling as hearing a new Orange juice song on the John Peel show way back then, then I hope you'll appreciate how great your song-writing still is! BTW I think that you like Syntax...so here is the king of it!…

Who the heck....?

Dear Edwyn
How do I find the your booking agent? I want to try and secure your musical services for Liverpool Sound City in 2010 and the internet is throwing up zero clues.

Here's hoping I hear from you buddy
Big love

A Night To Remember

I know it has been said by m*** of you already, but the gig at the Bloomsbury Ballroom on Saturday was very special. A night that my partner Josephine and I will never forget.

A Great venue & two great support bands in The Low Miffs with the wonderful Malcolm Ross and the delighful sounds of Colorama got the night of to a great start. I have seen Edwyn peform a couple times now since his comeback & for me this was his finest hour, truly in fine voice . A great set featuring m***… Continue

Bloomsbury - what a venue, what a night!

After most gigs I guess we all come out saying it's the best one we've ever been to. This time it really was right up there with the very best of them. The whole atmosphere, quality on stage and fantastic venue made this a night never to be forgotten. Topped off with the pleasure of a chat with Will after confusing the poor lad over the t-shirt I was buying (a bargain at a tenner!), and Grace ever present........I've not experienced anything quite like it before. Thanks to all for a brilliant,… Continue

Thanks for last night Edwyn

The night started in good fashion with Malcolm Ross's band and then got better with Colorama. What a great band and the lead singer then turns to playing bass for Edwyn.

Edwyn and the band were excellent last night, even better than Leeds last year. The trip was made worthwhile even just for hearing Home Again. Even showing great humour when forgetting the band names for a while. Top man.

Fantastic evening Edwyn, thank you.

Bloomsbury Ballroom 7/11/09

I had an amazing time last night! It was a nightmare travelling down from Norwich, rail replacement services were the order of the day. However, it was all worth it when I got down to Holborn! I met some interesting people, all excited about seeing Edwyn live, many had seen Orange Juice back in the early 1980s or had seen Edwyn live before on many occasions. For me though, this was the first time I had ever had the chance to see the man perform.

The support bands both put on really good… Continue

Blooming marvellous

I finally saw Edwyn for the first time last night after loving his music for nearly 30 years. It was sensational and emotional. I loved every minute and did not want it to end. Thanks to all who were there for helping to make it so, but most of all thank you Edwyn.

Blooming in Bloomsbury

Just back from the Bloomsbury gig and what a great gig it was! Edwyn was on sparkling form and Colorama were brilliant in support! My view was obscured slightly by two rather tall young ladies, but i can't complain too much... as obscured views go, this one wasn't half bad! ;O) And what a lovely venue to boot! All in all, a great night!

Cuban culture

Posted by Robyn Cross on April 8, 2021 at 17:49 0 Comments

Cuban culture is diverse mostly due to the influence of Asian, French, African, and Spanish migrants. The country has produced many eminent artists in various areas, including theater, dance, ballet, film, and literature. The Cuban population reflects a mix of cultures that happily live together and cooperate with each other for the common benefit.
