House of Fun – The Worlds Most Iconic Bands And We Chat With Essex Based Soprano Singer Joanna Forest and Plant Powered Expo Organiser Tim Barford

In a special bonus edition of House Of Fun, Karin Ridgers is asking what makes a band iconic – and playing tracks from the most iconic bands ever…

Karin also chats with the brilliant Essex based soprano singer Joanna Forest. Joanna shot to fame in 2017 when she became the first independent artist to get straight to Number 1 in the Official Classical Album Charts with a debut album.

Joanna entered the world of classical crossover in 2014 following a successful West End and TV career. Her first public performance as a crossover artist was in duet with Britain’s Got Talent megastar, Paul Potts, at The Palace Theatre, London who later also guest duetted with Joanna on “The Rhythm of Life” with a new arrangement of Boccelli’s “Because We Believe”.

We also chat with former rave organiser now turned vegan festival organiser Tim Barford about his music tastes and find out more about exciting new festival Plant Powered Expo.

Taking place on February 1st 2nd 2020 at Olympia London, Plant Powered Expo welcomes people from all walks of life with an emphasis on healthy living and feelgood factor, balanced with practical, affordable and environmentally responsible lifestyle choices.
