The Monastery Of The Battle
Russell’s late evening one-man show at Batalha, Portugal was a great success … so much so that he appears to be planning a return trip.
The following is from Leiria TV News and the commentary is, of course, in Portuguese though Russell chats in English in a post-performance interview..
There are also lots of pictures on the Facebook Page of Turismo Centro de Portugal.
Update : 29th November 2019 : ‘In Harmony’ is certified “Gold“
‘In Harmony’, Russell and Aled Jones’ first album together entered the Official Albums Chart on 16th November 2018, at No 8 in the overall chart, at No 2 in the ‘Classical Artist‘ albums chart and at No 1 in the Independent Albums chart where it remained at the top for eight weeks, only dropping to No 2 on 11th January 2019 as The Searchers released their Farewell Album at the start of the New Year.
The album was certified “Silver” on 14th December 2018 and “Gold” on 29th November 2019.
You can listen, free of charge, to each of the 14 tracks on Russell and Aled’s official YouTube account.

Celebrity Radio Interview
Russell talked to Alex Belfield for Celebrity Radio and this time it was on video, not just audio.
Alex has recently re-posted the video by way of spreading the word about Russell’s 2020 UK Tour. Good man!
Looking good …
Russell is pictured at his home by photographer Loz Taylor in his post on Twitter.
Our thanks to Loz for sharing this and, of course, to Russell for allowing it. We very much hope for more, at some stage …
