Dear Tait members and guests,

It is a pleasure to be invited to play the first of the “Tait Tuesdays at Home” series. I hope you will continue to join us from your living rooms each week as myself and my fellow Tait awardees share our music and stories with you. We thank you for welcoming us virtually into your homes and giving us this opportunity to breathe as performing artists once again.

Here I have prepared for you an eclectic program of songs, woven through the tapestry of my London journey. It is a rare treat to be presented with this opportunity to tell my story in such an intimate and personal setting. I could fill a week’s worth of evenings with songs and tales from the last 10 years, but I have managed this time to stick to just one hour.

I look forward to connecting with you all on Tuesday, perhaps with a cheeky glass of wine?

All my love and gratitude,

Tara Minton
