I'm not sure if this is strictly speaking "Flash Mobin" but ot was loads of fun. We wondered around Beech Road in Chorlton, Manchester stopping, playing and cloggin:

Outside the Beech

Outside somewhere else

Laura's first public cloggin with thanks to Liz Calderbank (Teacher)

Near the Spanish Bar and the Cafe that was on TV

Thanks to Pam for the video, Rob for technical help and a selection of the ever growing Beech Band. When we got back to The Beech we met Greta who played Brian Boru's March on a Bohemian Harp.

Excellent work from the Beech Band!

If I might suggest one small improvement it would be that you all need to smile more (you all look so serious!). Wind instrument players would be exempt from this change - unless, of course, you can play the whistle/recorder and smile at the same time!

Hey!!!

I've heard many variations of the third part of Horses Brawl, you had a version of the second part that I'd not heard.

Which one is you?

Ok, I am the miserable-looking bloke at the back with the tenor banjo.

I am infact not remotely miserable. I have to keep gritting my teeth to stop bouts of giggling because I am playing entry-level banjo with this fantastic collection of musicians who come to The Beech most weeks to play these brilliant old tunes and sing them old songs. I just can't believe my luck!

Play on band

Les

Better no smiles than forced ones. Smiling because someone told you to just doesn't work.
Tell them they are doing fine, and to relax and enjoy it, then they'll smile naturally.

Don't worry I was only trying to wind Les up. He is in fact, "not remotely miserable". And neither are the others - fantastic and enthusiastic musicians all!
