We started the year with our regular gig at The Snickleway Inn in York. We’d been arranging a few new tunes but hadn’t had time to run through them with our percussionist Billy. He did an amazing job of playing a new set that included two time changes, with only a two minute briefing along the lines of “three times through the first tune – the same 12/8 time as America from West Side Story – then it goes into three-three-two for the interlude, then it’s a straight reel but let Linds set the new tempo” He nailed it. Of course he did!
Bob Mitchell came down with the top-notch new Canon camera he was trying out – here are a few of his photos from the night:
