HE'S A POET; AND DOESN'T KNOW IT!
Daniel has already published several English language poems for children (and adults) on his English language Youtube channel - Inglés Interactivo con Daniel Smith and is writing more in the autumn. He uses his own music compositions as background and his wife, Isabel Perez Puig, designs the graphics. And every poem is 12 lines long! Influences by 12-bar blues per chance? Must be his natural rhythm/meter... HERE'S 'HALLOWEEN!' ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omvt_ubo_w0

In addition to his regular 'Blues Piano' show, he is in discussion with fabulous American pianist Amy Abler. She's a seriously talented classical recitalist (her regular Fringe show is 'Piano Divalicious') and she and Daniel are talking about a couple of additional 'Beethoven To Boogie' collaboration shows. In any case, the GRAND FINALE will be at St Mary's Cathedral, Friday 21 August, with special guest TIM ELLIOTT!!
