Brent Knoll musician's date with June Whitfield
7:30am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
A SINGER/songwriter from Brent Knoll has performed for a renowned British actress.
‘Ed K-T’, who is through to the Open Mic UK Regional Final in Bristol on November 3, was invited to give actress June Whitfield a private audience at her home in Wimbledon last week.
June is known for her appearances in Terry and June, the ‘Carry On’ films, Absolutely Fabulous and Last of the Summer Wine.
Ed had his guitar stolen while in London recording and The Frankie Howerd Trust, of which June is President, stepped in to help him with a grant to buy a new guitar.
Hearing of Ed's success with the guitar, June invited him to play for her.
Ed said: “It was a great honour to play for June in her home. I was pretty nervous but she was just like my Gran and made me a cup of tea.
“I played her a number of songs to which she listened intently.
“She had some comments about the lyrics and made some helpful suggestions.”
Ed hopes to reach the final of the Open Mic UK at the O2 Arena in London.
