Here are a few photos of us between sets. As always, we’re available for bookings so contact us if you’d like us to perform at your event.

Hollesley 2016 – Farewell

It was that Hollesley time of year again, but sunny Suffolk was a mix of joy and sadness as it was to be the last year at this site. Still it didn’t dampen the spirits, the revelry or uke playing.

Pratts Bottom Village Fete May 2016

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: Read the rest of this entry »

Sheila’s Birthday Bash 1

We were delighted to be asked to play at Sheila’s birthday party – a joint do for her fiftieth & her cousin Jenny’s fortieth – down in Horn Park, Lee. It was the first time the entire group of us has performed a public gig & went absolutely splendidly.

We played two sets of our favourite numbers – twenty songs in total. There are some videos on the way of a few of the tunes and here are a few photos of the event.

Hither Green Festival 2014

This month has seen us perform two gigs. The second was in St Swithun’s Church Hall, Hither Green Lane, as part of this year’s Hither Green Festival. We played two sets to an appreciative crowd, either side of a tasty Malaysian meal.

Liz Creasey took this footage of Va Pensiero. If anyone else bootlegged our performance, please do get in touch as we’d love to show the videos on the website.
