Hello and I am Happy to say that Steep Street Coffee Cakes Wine and Books in Old High Street Folkestone have placed 3 of my books in the Folkestone Writers Section… Thank you very much xxxx

Dave Monk A remarkable book – excellent and compulsive read – with the odds heavily stacked against her, Carol’s determination to make it as a singer would make a great film if it could capture the underlying theme of changing times from an era that was almost recognisable as Victorian to the transformation that was rock’n’roll driven by the post-war generation.

The Singer’s Tale ~ Saint James Theatre ~ London

‘The Singer’s Tale’ was just so brilliant on so many different levels, a fascinating story of a life lived; laughter mixed with nostalgia and the occasional tinge of sadness and sometimes regret, made me remember times from my youth which I had forgotten [well it’s been a while] – soaring, moving, vibrant music and song, play acting, acting the fool, just incredible, so poignant – sounds and images from last evening still going round in my mind – marvellous – thank you all, Carol Grimes,Dorian FordAnnie Whitehead, Winston Clifford and Neville Malcolm x


Like you say, still going around in our minds, all the minds of everyone that was there, I am sure. It is certainly going round in ours.

Paul Griffiths A fabulous evening – and what a great recording.

This was a gem of a show. Evocative poetry and fine songs to match. Carol Grimes Singer’s Tale. Highly recommended..

 — with Annie Whitehead andCarol Grimes. 

Carol Huggins Brilliant night. Loved it all but ended too soon. Musicians great. A blues harmonica player on the 12 bar numbers would have been nice only ‘cos my husband plays it. Our friend and my husband were your groupies back in the day, a long long time away. Thank you.
