In Care Homes, Elaine plays solo and sings a mixture of war time, old film, cockney, music hall and more recent, up tempo numbers, which are sing-along (with easy words). She is a lively and friendly entertainer, chatting with her audiences, asking them questions about the songs and encouraging them to join in, both with singing and with some percussion instruments which she brings along.
“Homelink clients always enjoy it when Elaine visits our respite centre. Her music and singing lift the spirits of everyone and we particularly like the way she engages with our clients and draws them into the entertainment. Thank you Elaine.”
Jen Clarke, Business Manager - Homelink Day Care, Whitton
“Think the Brits can‘t deliver a terrific acoustic performance ? I‘ll show you something that‘ll make you change your mind. Anyone venturing to England should check out an excellent acoustic artist, Elaine Samuels, working either solo or front and center for her duo Kindred Spirit”.

"Elaine has a voice which can be both hauntingly beautiful & deeply emotional, coupled with a powerful stage presence. Her material ranges from folk through to blues, but it is her rich repertoire of perceptive, intriguing self penned songs combined with her guitar work which sets her apart”.
