Pratts Bottom Village Fete May 2016

09 May

This year saw fine weather for our annual Pratts Bottom Village Fete gig so Chris arranged for us to be outside under a gazebo, instead of indoors in the Village Hall.

The wind proved an entertaining challenge: whilst we had remembered to bring pegs to ensure our songsheets stayed in place, Bob’s music stand decided to swing round like the sail of a boat &, at times, Colin had to hold down his pages with his foot – an interesting new playing technique!

We had an excellent day. Andrew has caught some of our setting up, clearing down and the obligatory post gig drinks in the local hostelry in this set of photos:

    I think I might have told a few people I’d send them a link to the Draper clamps I brought with me because they were popular. Clothes pegs will do if your music stand is the right size, but even then, some people in flats might not even own clothes pegs (I don’t!):
    Ignore the poor reviews of the large – it’s mainly people using them for the wrong purpose (afaicr).

    If you want 5 big clamps, this is a better deal.
