What a year 2016 has been! Cherry has spent 7 months of the year overseas in blocks of 3 touring with her jazz band taking in 17 countries, as well as performing with the Cherry Lee Mewis band in the UK at numerous festivals and with the Del Bromham Blues Devils Band and Think Floyd too.

Keep an eye on the tour page for 2017 dates, Cherry will be spending the first 4 months of the year on a world tour with her jazz band taking in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Japan, China, and Dubai among many others. You can be sure to get daily updates from Cherry's Facebook and Twitter pages, not forgetting her personal favourite, Instagram so you can follow along on her journey.

Plans for 2017 include a Spring tour when Cherry returns, an EP release of Cherry's BBC session from Radio 2 along with Nashville mixes of 3 tracks from the Catch My Drift album, a special DVD release, and a new album later in the year too. Lots going on and plenty to look forward to!

Enjoy the pics below of last weekend's shows which saw Cherry join Del Bromham at The Beaverwood in Kent, and Cherry's Christmas show with her band at Bedford Esquires. Many thanks to Andy Reynolds and Trev Earl for the pics.

Here's to another fantastic year ahead and once again, thank you for all your support in 2016.

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
