I heard them do just a couple of songs in The Star and I thought they were very good but when in the evening they camp to our singaround in the Rifle Club we were jam packed full and we could not get them in it was very disappointing.

You missed a real treat Joe. They came through the Station s/a and impressed with some powerful harmony singing. Interesting arrangements of some classics too.

I heard them in a singaround at the Endeavour - I thought they were great - strong voices and interesting harmonies. I'm looking to invite them to one of our concerts and singing events here in Sedbergh and Dent. One of them gave me his card (which I have since lost) - they are from Southport.

I heard them sing in the Star, and I was very impressed and would like to hear more of them, but I'm not sure I can get to Ainsdale this Sunday.

I can pass on any enquiries - David's one of our Residents and Alastair & Ben are regular visitors to the Bothy. I'll be at Ainsdale on Sunday - weather looks dodgy but it will go ahead even if it's tipping it down!
Trousers may be ragged though harmonies are anything but! (heh, heh)

They missed a trick with the name. I would have gone with the Ragged Trousered Performerists :-)
