Sorry about the short notice but I have been asked to publicise this:

Driffield Council (East Riding of Yorks)are organising a street fair and market for this Saturday (%th Oct)and they are looking for someone (or group of someones) to busk in the market place between 10-.30 and 2.30 (not continuously). There is a negotiable fee and you can collect money too!

If anyone is interested please contact Claire on 01377 254160 (daytime) 256043 (evening)

Sorry Roger, can't make it, but it would have been nice to get the Northern Busking Champions back together for a bash!!! Three times winners, and runners up twice wasn't it?

Hi Tone

Yes, the old busking champs could still cut a rug or two I bet. When are you coming over for one of our sessions in Beverley? Plenty of bed space at Busby Towers if you need one after supping all the free beer on offer at my last Sunday of the month sesh in the Sun

Yes Rog, we were nothing if not bloody LOUD!

One of these days out of the caravan season ('cos you know where we hang out throughout the summer) we will have to attempt a trip Beverley. I want to show off my new Paul Shippey box anyway! IT's the loudest, most beautiful toned mandolin I've ever touched!

No, you were LOUD!

I'm sure that all of my colleagues here in Beverley will vouch for the fact that I only play quiet, introspective, fingerpicky stuff when I'm on my own..........not!

Roger, We will have a go at it but we seem to have trouble getting in touch with Clair. Has she got an email address? And, do they want just one busker, or can anybody join in?

I don't know of an email - the contact was through Carol of outsider so you could try her email/phone - see other thread about outsider playing in Grimsby
