In Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, USA, Phil (the superstar Groundhog) will be closely watched as he leaves his burrow. According to the tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he’s predicted six more weeks of wintery weather but if Phil does not see his shadow, he’s predicted an early spring.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate by listening to ‘Seeing You’ performed by Tim and some of the cast and musicians from the Old Vic production of Groundhog Day at the 20th South Bank Sky Arts Awards last year.
To skip the intro start at 0:36.
