Laughs on one-woman world tour.

Byline: By KAREN PRICE Western Mail

Amanda Painting has spent years travelling the globe as an entertainer. Now she's going to be sharing her experiences through a stage show.

There are expected to be plenty of laughs when the accomplished local pianist, singer and raconteur, with some help from surprise guests, tells her tales at Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan.

Audiences should be prepared to laugh and cry as Amanda takes them on her humorous and intimate journey through the highs and lows of travelling around the world as a solo performer in a career that has spanned 20 years.

She's entertained and socialised with scores of people from working men's clubs through to exclusive hotels.

Among those she's rubbed shoulders with range from the rich and famous to karaoke kings and Pop Idol hopefuls.

Amanda performs her own unique versions of some favourite covers alongside her own amusing compositions, intermingling them with personal stories that reflect the depth of human nature at its core.

Amanda started playing the piano at the age of six and then, at the age of 12, took up the unusual brass instrument the tuba.

At 17, she reached the semi finals of the first Young Musician of the Year competition.

As it was such an unusual instrument for a young female to play, the competition led to many TV and radio interviews. She also gained her associate of the Royal College of Music before going on to spend four years at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

Her first taste of pop music came directly after college when she joined a trio and went to Aviemore for a summer season.

The trio became a duo for a year and then in 1985 she became a solo performer.

She has now spent more than 20 years working as a performer, travelling the world.

The show features her highs and lows during that time.

Amanda Painting's one-woman show is at Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan on September 22 at 7.30pm. The box office number is 01239 621200
