We have just had this press release in from Jean Martyn:
"I have just received confirmation that I am to go to play in London on December 3rd at St James Palace, which was the home of Princess Diana, for a Charity Concert for the NFHA, the 'Not forgotten heroes association' - ie the Chelsea pensioners, and the soldiers who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Guest of Honour is Dame Vera Lynn, and I shall be playing grand piano, accompanying Dame Vera Lynn, and then giving a solo piano Christmas spot to show off my capabilities. After the concert we will be having afternoon tea, and then the royal party will be introduced to the artistes!"
We know that Bob and Scott must be very proud of her. So before the end of the year it could be said that Jean will be "By Royal Appointment". Perhaps it won't be too long before she will become Dame Jean Martyn!
