A DOZEN QUESTIONS - 7 OF 12 - SPECIAL GUEST: JANET HENRY



A DOZEN QUESTIONS
(7 OF 12)

The Pivot Questionnaire comprises 10 questions. I have seen it used on the television show Inside The Actor's Studio, presented by James Lipton. Apparently Proust was the original inspiration. The modern questions originated on a French TV show called Bouillon de Culture, hosted by Bernard Pivot. I have expanded the questions to 12.

(For the time being, this idea is restricted to Northern Ireland's creative artists in any field, literature, music, broadcasting, etc. If you are one and are interested in taking part as well as promoting your work, please get in touch via joecushnan@aol.com)

This post’s special guest is singer/songwriter Janet Henry, formerly Janet Holmes, who was born in East Belfast into a musical family. She has been singing in various bands since the age of 14. She took to writing her own songs about ten years ago and has two CDs under her belt, The Road To The West and Wonder Why. 



She is in the process of recording a third CD which is due for release this year. Her style is acoustic Americana with touches of bluegrass country and folk. Janet has performed and recorded with some very established artists such as Nancy Griffiths, Andy Irvine, Charlie McGettigan, the late Duffy Power and Gary Ferguson. One of her songs, Stones and Gravel, is going to be recorded by world-class bluegrass duo Kathy Barwick and Pete Siegfried from California.
