Jez Lowe was on outstanding form last night and was much appreciated by a large audience. He mixed up some old favourites with some really excellent new ones. Outstanding amongst the new ones was The Judas Bus which is a song that he wrote for the new radio ballad The Ballad of the Miners' Strike which will be broadcast on March 2nd - details at http://froots.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=5080

Next Thursday is another great night in prospect:-
