    I was among a dedicated gathering of Janis’ fans, worldwide, watching the live stream online. It was amazing! Such a thrill and an honour for me, to see her “live” and in real time. A first for me and a memory I will treasure.

    What a wonderful time spent listening to Janus Ian. We drove from New Tampa to see her. She is a classic performer.
