29 November 2014

The Vin Garbutt gig is cancelled due to Vin's ill Health. 
However, we're very pleased thatGeorge Welch and Stewart Hardy have agreed to bring forward their gig from the New Year and step in to the breach. They are two dear friends.and words are futile when it comes to these guys.  Don’t come along if you don’t like laughing - or wonderful music and songs!  Playing for the sheer pleasure of doing so and delighting audiences with the characteristic spontaneity which is the hallmark of their unashamedly shambolic (but in a good way) show.
