Wendy Kirkland tour dates

In July 2017 I raved about Wendy Kirkland's album - Piano Divas
It subsequently made my 'Vocal CDs of the Year' listing. 
I wasn't alone in my enthusiasm. 
Alan Barnes, Roger Beaujolais, Jim Mullen and Dave Gelly are but some of the many who have praised the singer/pianist (or should it be pianist/singer?) and I'm sure this will be reflected in the next round of the jazz world's popularity polls.
The Wendy Kirkland Quartet is currently touring, somewhat intermittently, mainly in the south, midlands and the northwest. Nothing so far in the northeast which is rather a shame as, once again, we are missing out on a class act.
If The Jazz Coop or the Jazz Café have any slots still to be filled then the answer could well lie here.
