Croydon Composers 2017
“Katie Rose, a choral folk singer, hit the stage full of energy, singing a capella. Soon after she was joined by drummer Dan Buskell, with Katie on the keyboard, performing their song ‘In The Jungle.’ The performers’ excitement was infectious as Katie urged the crowd to make as many animal noises as possible. I am sure my attempt at a lion roar did not go unnoticed. ”

It has also been a fantastic experience for me – the creativity, energy and commitment of these Croydon artists has been inspirational.””
