Singer songwriter Scarlette, whose new album ‘Attack Of The 6 Ft Woman’ is due to be released on May 6th 2016 has announced details of a unique tour to promote its release.
Scarlette, who is a SEN (Special Education Needs) music teacher by day and a guitar-toting Radio 2 play-listed singer/songwriter by night, will be performing in a series of traditional town and city venues in the evening and appearing at SEN schools in the corresponding towns and cities during daylight hours.
Scarlette comments: “This is a unique opportunity to work together with young people to produce something truly special. The young people we work with during these daytime sessions will go on a journey and it will be a privilege to share the journey with them. When these young people are supported, allowed to have a go rather than being told “no” or “you can’t”, there’s no telling how far they can go. The sessions will be a School Of Rock taster and we will be recording the young people to create a nationwide Scarlette choir to go on my latest record.”
Scarlette will be accompanied on the tour by Ed Goodale, a singer on the autistic spectrum http://edgoodale.com, who has an EP out in Spring 2016. The tour is being supported by the National Autistic Society (http://www.autism.org.uk). Each of the venues for the evening shows have been chosen for their ease of disability access through the Attitude Is Everything platform attitudeiseverything.org.uk.
