Many moons ago (about 8 years actually) I lived in Beverley Yorkshire and sang and played at the Selby Club whenever I could get over there. I remember a number of memorable nights (but probably not the really memorable ones if you see what I mean!) I'm now down in Sidmouth, Devon and pretty involved with the local scene and loving every minute.
Like you I'm also a new Mudcateer, hopelessly addicted and never cease to be amazed by the combined knowledge and wisdom and how freely and generously this is given.
Ta very much!
