What I’ve Been Up To: July 2015Posted by Catherine Elms on July 26, 2015 Blog posts | | One comment
I performed at two Pirate Jenny Cabaret evenings this month – Ffwrnes Theatre in Llanelli, and The Gate in Cardiff. I performed alongside a wide variety of acts – comedians, dancers, choirs and a magician – which was quite unlike anything I’d ever done before, but I had loads of fun and the other acts were great!

My favourite recent gig was It’s Girl Time at Mozarts Swansea, which was raising funds for local homeless women. I performed alongside singer-songwriter Eleri Angharad, and comedians Ali Hancock and Sarah Bridgeman. There was such a supportive welcoming atmosphere, which is one of many reasons why Mozarts is among my favourite music venues.
Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been working on my new EP, which is due to be released in October – lots of details to be confirmed very soon! Sign up to my mailing list and follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates, behind-the-scenes footage, and more.
Other fun stuff I’ve been up to lately:
– Volunteering at Eid in the Park, Swansea! I got a cute henna tattoo, and went down a giant inflatable slide with my colleague – I cut my hand, arm, and butt on the way down but it was worth it.
– Today I ran the Swansea Race for Life (5k)! We had torrential rain and wind for the whole morning so it was hard work, but I ran the entire thing in 37 minutes which I’m happy with.
