This month the 1st falls on a Monday, so you get to see some photos before they even hit my column! I had the privilege of photographing the talented Ali Milner, and Michael Bernard Fitzgerald at St James Hall – with special guests the St James Music Academy choir! As well as The Belle Game, Christopher Smith, and Snowblink, at the Waldorf.
So Happy October! and check out what is…
