Some Fantoines have got together to create a world map on which fans can add their name and location.
No need to put your full name or exact address, just an idea of where you are.
This is the link to the Facebook page and this is the direct link to the map. If you have any problems please write in comments or email me. Tweet

Jonathan is feeling better and should be well enough to perform with Russell Watson in Preston on Friday 6 December for the Katie Holmes Trust.
There are still some tickets available and these can be purchased through the Trust’s website or by phoning Preston Guild Hall. I believe the staff are very helpful.
(The photo here was taken when Jonathan appeared with Charlotte at QVC UK in the middle of October). Tweet

A video from the breathtaking evening concert at Gawsworth Hall, Cheshire on Friday 3 August.
Apologies for the film quality but those of us who did video the concert were doing it undercover. This is not one of mine (my filming wasn’t any better!) but the sound gives you an idea of his voice in the outdoor, intimate setting of the beautiful Gawsworth Hall. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area. Tweet

Yesterday some Scottish Fantoines (Clantoines) met up in Livingston near Edinburgh.
One of the lovely fans made this super placard and the bagpipes actually play! I do hope she keeps it for future events because I doubt if anyone could surpass it!
I was there. It was a super afternoon with lovely people and all because the lady who made the placard had made the suggestion to meet.
Sorry I haven’t posted other photos but I haven’t asked permission of those who attended and some people don’t like to see themselves on the ‘world wide web’. I don’t because I look far too old in photos!
Hope this gives some of you an idea to meet with those around you. Tweet

This is tear-jerking. Some of you may know Jonathan has suffered from depression for some time and he wasn’t well when he sang this, but he did it because he wanted to show respect to one of his teachers who had died.
Obviously it was recorded a few years ago but it’s had over 3,000,000 views on Youtube since it was uploaded there two years ago.
Like me, I’m sure you can feel the pain of his depression, but it also makes the song far more profound and sincere.

My favourite performance of Jonathan’s from BGT. It shows his ability to breath in all the right places. Magnificent doesn’t really describe it.

Unfortunately Jonathan's (and Charlotte’s) appearance this Saturday at the Festival of Remembrance in the Albert Hall, London has been cancelled.
Jonathan’s doctor has insisted he is too unwell to participate. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he has time to enjoy some of his other interests - which are many.
His Mum and sister Charlotte have said on his Facebook page that Jonathan is hoping he will be well enough to appear with Russell Watson in Preston on 6 December. All his fans do too and I believe quite a few will be attending the event. Tweet

Jonathan, along with Charlotte, will be taking part in this year’s Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall a week tomorrow, Saturday 9 November. There are two performances, one in the afternoon and another in the evening, when it is expected Her Majesty the Queen will attend along with other members of the royal family.
A few tickets are available for the event so please visit the Albert Hall Events page.
The evening performance will be broadcast by the BBC starting on BBC1 at 9pm. Do tune in if you possibly can because it is a emotional and poignant event which pays tribute to those who gave their lives so as we can live in freedom today. Tweet
