  2. Ane Ramloese Says:

    Hello Christine – I love your voice and your music. And you should know that my daughter – who is now 18 – for the last many years always has put on either Keith Jarrets ” The Melody at Night With You” or “Romance and R” or The Secret Life of ..” when she was in the need for resting and finding peace – A real compliment for you : ) We look forward to listening to Yeats, you and the wonderful band. And hope you will come to Denmark very ! All the best from Ane Ramloese

  3. Judith allen Says:

    we have only just discovered Christine. WOW!! Have just returned from her concert at Terry OTtoole Theatre, North Hykeham. Her voice is breathtaking….didn’t think anyone could do justice to Leonard Cohen songs but I was wrong, very wrong.

  4. Barrie Spark Says:

    My wife and I saw the show at North Hykeham in November and thought it was wonderful. The new CD which I bought on the night is also first class. We were determined to see the show again so have just received our front row tickets for September at The Sage at Gateshead. Looking forward to seeing you again, best wishes from Barrie and Judith.
