This was an ideal opportunity for me and my friends on the Women In Music module to perform some of the pieces that we have researched and prepared for our recital lectures on the 8th March.

It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to work with accompanist Leanne Singh-Levett who has helped me to shape my songs, one of which is quite a difficult and quirky contemporary piece by Kaija Saariaho called “Il Pleut”.  Leanne will also be accompanying my friends Katy Thomson and Esme Hurlburt with their contributions to the evening.

Boxes

By Scott Bailey © 2014

I have been put in so many boxes
No wonder I have lost my head
My left hand has lost the right
My heart is by the brown bread

Can’t tell where or when
My feet are tied to a tired path
They wander again and again
But it doesn’t matter

Tempting like a tart
Sweet nectar awaits inside

The Future

The future we hope
Will be crystal clear and bright
Instead, it is blurred

The Future

By Scott Bailey 2017

I ruminate on my future
I have grown weary
My skills and senses
Blunted
A plough driven too long

I must change
Or something must change
Nervous
I must arise again
Be alive again
