Hi, we are getting married just outside of Florence June 2013 and we were hoping to find a singer/songwriter who plays guitar for our wedding. Does anyone have any suggestions? If money was not a factor I would fly in Joshua Radin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EK6MIRdP3Bw, but I have to settle for the next best thing -Florence answer to Joshua ;)

I must tell you about my new novel 'My Father, The Assassin by J W Finnigan which has just been published on Amazon.  If you like romantic thrillers, this one is for you.  I am now cracking on with a follow up book with the same heroine, Joanna Wilde, and will let you all know when it is finished - hopefully before Christmas.  It is called 'The Bolivian Connection'. I write my stories from a lovely villa overlooking the Chiant Hills.  Barty the grey tiger cat is usually curled up on my lap or purring close by. I you are interested in visiting my blog go to www.junefinnigan.wordpress.com, or starting a book club in the Certaldo area, drop me an email at june.finnigan@virgin.net.   I look forward to hearing from you.  Best Regards June
