We had some time to kill before the last gig of our East of England tour, we thought we’d find somewhere scenic in Royal Tunbridge Wells and do a quick video. Not sure why….. but here’s a video from the station car park. It was actually rather fun to do (couple of out takes on the end) and the parking warden seemed quite bemused by it all!
Delighted to release our second “proper” video. I’ve loved this song from the first time I heard it, so it was an absolute joy to have the wonderful Caraway Music make a video of us playing in the crypt of St John on the Wall in Bristol. Thanks guys!
27th January 2019 – Today’s concert at Music On The Levels is one I’ve been looking forward to!
Not only does the church have the most stunning acoustics, but they have had the most wonderful cake the last couple of times we played there. What’s not to like.
TOO LATE, you missed it… What a fun concert, full house, and the cake was great – So thanks to the organisers and to whosoever made that apple cake and the rather splendid Victoria sponge……
In our latest song a fictitious character “Albion” takes a nostalgic trip to the seaside. It’s a bit of a washout. Any similarity to the Brexit debacle is purely intentional…
And a rather tongue in cheek little video:
A fun weekend of gigs at “Dunster by candlelight”.
The weather was a slight issue as t’was very cold, wet & windy! Wisely Mitchell and Vincent had managed to procure some indoor performance space for most of our 30 minute slots, but things took a slightly unexpected turn in the makeshift performance area opposite “The Stag’s Head Inn” in West Street. Despite one of the evening’s torrential downpours being under way, a few brave souls had stopped to listen. Stopping is something we also had to do when I spotted my violin case starting to float along in the newly formed stream passing though the back of the (otherwise weather tight) gazebo.
Still a great couple of evenings and hope to be back next year!
We do play at parties, dinners and other private events and if you fancy brightening up one winter’s evening with some friends, we’d love to come and play for you. We bring all our own kit and have performed in some pretty small spaces in the past!
Pricing does vary according to distance, but a simple party without significant travel starts at a surprisingly modest fee.
So, if you fancy giving it a go, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
Be warned, we do drink a lot of tea.
Dave & I were playing at a lovely apple harvesting day in Axmouth, we wandered around the beautiful orchard playing to the groups of apple pickers and the folks helping to process the apples through the various stages needed to make juice.
Standing by a tree, Dave & I were having a quick break between tunes when a young lad walked up to me and looked pointedly at my violin bow. “Have you got a stick I can use to get the apples down?” – I did feel a bit mean, but I had to say no.
