Harmonium Hero John Kelly (Harmonium Hero) - all OK? (46) RE: John Kelly (Harmonium Hero) - all OK? 25 Feb 15

Hello. It is I!
My attention was drawn to this thread the other day. I haven't got a computer, so I don't see these things regularly. Nice to know I haven't been forgotten completely! I'm out of circulation, simply because there's no work for the likes of me (and quite a few others - we could probably make out a long list between us). There are about a couple of dozen 'usual suspects' whose names crop up with momotonous regularity on club and festival guest lists, radio shows (can you have a 'show' on radio?), and in magazines. It seems to be all about the Stars' latest Projects these days. The rest of us mere folk singers can sod off. Do I sound bitter and twisted?
I'm only insured as 'retired' at the moment, until I can find some way to get back on the road. I've never intended to retire. There is nothing stopping me from singing or playing. I'm still dancing. Why no work? You'd need to ask the club organisers that. As Will Fly says above, I can't afford to get about doing the promo stuff that was getting me dates. There are whole areas of the country that I haven't been to, so they don't know what I do. They could always visit my website:
Enough moaning. I'm interested in getting together with one or two other musicians within reasonable travelling distance of Merseyside. I'd like to work with a harpist and cellist, ideally people who can also sing - enough to do harmonies at least, and are able to play one or two other instruments. Anybody interested?
Watch tis space, and thanks for the concern.
John Kelly.
