A Teesside folk singer is hoping to hit the charts after releasing her first ever Christmas single.

Sara Dennis, 37, from Normanby, has released the single ‘Be Mine (This Christmas Time)’ on iTunes and Amazon.

The single is officially registered with the charts and Sara, a popular folk singer in the North East, is hoping people will like the festive song she has composed with writing partner Gavin Wood.

The song has a simple composition of Sara’s vocals, ukulele and sleigh bells to give it an extra Christmassy feel.

Sara, who works for Middlesbrough Council’s libraries as an adult services manager, described the song as a “folky Christmas love song with fairy tale imagery and an ecological message”.

“The lyrics contrast the clear skies of Finland with overcrowded smoky London and end with a nod to the windswept north east coast with its beautiful heritage,” said Sara.

She adds: “I’ve not written a Christmas song before so I thought I would give it a go!

“I have played it live and it has gone down really well. I hope people enjoy it.”

Sara, who plays folk gigs around Newcastle, Saltburn and Middlesbrough, brought out an album ‘Time and Tide’ last year which sold out its limited run.

She has now created her own independent record label called ‘Time & Tide Records’ and is working on her second album.
