Barbara Ireland's Turning Back Time

Barbara Ireland's Turning Back Time

Return to the classic jazz & blues nightclubs of the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s where dim lighting, suits and gowns, and the scent of perfume and whiskey filled the atmosphere. Ireland’s sultry vocals shimmer above passionate jazz performances & hot sax solos.

Barbara Ireland has recorded sexy songs! The kind of music that make you want to rip his clothes off.   It is difficult to do justice these standards and almost in possible to please me singing  them. I admit I was skeptical when I started listening.   Ireland’s voice and styling brings out the best in the songs she has selected. “Turning Back Time – Classic Songs To Kiss By”  has won me over.  Purchase on CDBaby.

Read a complete review at Seattle PI. See excerpt below.

Seattle singer-songwriter Barbara Ireland’s new album is a world apart from the glam-punk she once performed as a member of The Fags and other bands.
Ireland’s new album, “Turning Back Time: Classic Songs to Kiss By,” is a sultry, sumptuous collection of jazz and blues from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s.

Showbiz 411 have it that Bloom’s people are negotiating to get the star back for a small appearance in the first film and a major role in the bridge.

Showbiz 411 have it that Bloom’s people are negotiating to get the star back for a small appearance in the first film and a major role in the bridge.

The Hobbit has been a clever beast to tame and it continues to be as Peter Jackson attempts to bridge the gap between his upcoming film and the LOTR trilogy. Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett and Ian McKellen have all been brought back for this “bridge” film, but we still don’t know if we’ll see Orlando Bloom’s dagger-wielding, bow-slinging elf, Legolas.

Sources at Showbiz 411 have it that Bloom’s people are negotiating to get the star back for a small appearance in the first film and a major role in the bridge. There’s no signatures on paper yet and there’s still no tell of what Viggo Mortensen or the others may be up to, but expect this to go through.

Artists employed by Wellington’s world-renowned Weta Workshop are lining up to win the right to create life-sized sculptures of the beloved Hairy Maclary children’s book characters.

The workshop, famous for its Oscar-winning efforts for movies like Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, has approached Creative Tauranga for information on the planned Hairy Maclary sculpture trail through Tauranga’s city centre.

Creative Tauranga chief executive Tracey Rudduck-Gudsell said there was already a lot of excitement around the project and it was great that the workshop’s artists, which included some former Tauranga locals, were so interested.

She received the best possible Christmas present late last year when the Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust (TECT) agreed to put up the project’s $30,000 of seed funding.

“It is massive for this city,” she said of the plan to install up to 12 of the characters created by Tauranga author Dame Lynley Dodd through the downtown area.

She said TECT’s spontaneous decision indicated the enormous appeal of the project. All going well, she hoped that some of the sculptures would be in place by the time the Rugby World Cup began in September.

“It will be such a drawcard. Everyone has read a Hairy Maclary book, or has their favourite character.”
