Our residents were absolutely delighted and stated how privileged they felt having Lynne perform in their home singing and playing songs from past and present. We would gladly invite Lynne back to our home to perform and I strongly recommend her to anyone wishing to hire her.”

“I had the pleasure in booking Lynne Newman for a one hour concert. Lynne is very vivacious and obviously enjoys what she does, it is in her blood to entertain and she has many stories to tell. Lynne sung many songs from Burt Bacharach, Billy Joel, Carole King and others and ended with a much loved sing-a-long. Enjoyed by all.”
Belrose, July 2016
