Latest Youtube posting. I'm afraid we recycled the slideshow images - apart from Karen's wonderful night photo of us playing, which we've used for the title. As Andy, the violinist, sings when we perform, we thought it was about time we featured his vocals in a recording.
Last night we played at Zeffirelli's in Ambleside. We've played there before and this time we decided to try a new route - the one which Google Maps claimed to be quickest! It took us up to the top of the Kirkstone Pass (I think it might be on the "Coast to Coast", if you're reading this, George) and down the long, steep, winding hill known as The Struggle that leads from the top of the pass directly down to Ambleside - something of a roaring, second-gear white-knuckle ride in a van full of band. On arriving in Ambleside we instantly and unanimously decided that after the gig we'd go back the easy way, on the main road to Keswick. I assume the name "The Struggle" was coined in the days of horses and carts but it's still an apt description.
