Coming up to 7 years after John’s passing, there is still so much to share in our love for him. A bit of info here, you might want to grab a cuppa or a Guinness!
A message from Dale Dengate;2020. What a year!
So many people have asked me what do you think John would be writing now if he were still among us? Evidence from previous works would indicate that people who denied climate change and mishandled the country while it was aflame would have been called out in no uncertain terms. Politicians and leaders of other countries, who have displayed egotistical, self-centred ignorance, “who postured and strutted just like Mussolini” would have received colourful criticism.
Fortunately, there are many who still relate to John’s songs or verse or have written their own song or words inspired by John’s legacy.
Although we are cancelling a physical gathering in 2020, we are organising an online concert for Sunday 30th August – hope to ‘see’ you there.
– a live ZOOM/video call with people performing John’s songs and poems
– an accompanying playlist of submitted videos from those who can’t join us live
– perhaps a couple of other surprises
For those who don’t have experience using online video calls or ZOOM, or with recording a video – fear not! I will be able to give you instructions on how to take part, and we will do a couple of tests to make sure we are all au fait, as they say.
If so, it’s time to again as I have just completed a bunch of updates, including the addition of a few of John’s drawings.
