Blues is her first love...
Connie is also a known songwriter, writing for TV and featuring at Jazz FM and other radio stations as a DJ.  She continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous “Gusto” for life and music wherever she goes.  As BB King said “That woman makes my heart sing!”

I personally have had the pleasure of enjoying one of Connie’s concerts years ago – the music was brilliant and we had such a great evening which has stuck in my mind, so I’m really excited to welcome Connie and the boys to Dartmouth and can’t wait to see them again. 
Miss this at your peril..!
