This just in from our London neighbour, the wonderful accordion virtuoso Ksenija Sidorova:
Dear audience in Erfurt! Thanks for being understanding and sorry for wearing glasses tonight. I usually never do that, so I feel like dropping a little note…
If you heard sirens of ambulance today it was me being driven to the hospital where moments before the show I got treatment from a massive allergy which resulted in my eyes being almost completely closed.
Luckily the wondeful Katie Melua had a pair of shades and saved me for tonight! (She is so super lovely, you’ve no idea!!)
Thanks again for the warm applause! Off i go to put ice patches in hope to get rid of it asap.
