We are also running part-playing sessions for concertinas only; the music is available in the same way from the same page of the band website.

Enjoy your selves.
We will be at Chester Festival which is within walking distance and 170 miles nearer.
The Friday Ceilidh with Albireo will probably reach it's climax with Tom going mad on his fiddle in a superb rendering of Bonny Kate. When he plays it I always think of you and that first 'learn the tunes' workshop you did at Chippenham a few years ago, when we hadn't been to any sessions.
You (and other helpful people) got us started.

Thanks, Mo! We'll miss you at Chippenham, but you'l have a splendid time at Chester. I hope we'll catch up with you at a festival or two this summer.

We thought Bonny Kate was worth revisiting as it's still deservedly very popular.

And topical, of course.
I've been calling the dance at local clubs, along with Prince William.

Tee hee! We had wondered about including Prince William's March in the selection, but thought the sessions might become the subject of a mass picket led by Vic Gammon.
