Future Gigs Update

Hi Everyone

 
A few updates on the Bradlaugh Fields Community day and the Burton Latimer Strum like a pirate day at Isham
 
Bradlaugh Fields – Saturday 5th August, we’ve been asked if we can play a couple of times first about 10:45am and then again at 3:00pm both for about 40mins or so. How does that suit, can we do both? Don’t feel you have to be there for both if you can only do one of them that would be great. Jonathan suggested we put a uke case down and collected some money.
 
Burton Latimer – 12th August 3:15pm we have 30 mins doing our own stuff followed by 15mins of leading a mass strum along of the 3 nautical/water based songs we put forward which are Irish Rover, Proud Mary and Lighthouse all very random and selected quick as they had to be in by Sunday and these were three that we already play. I have attached some more information to this email. Sorry the poster is a bit large

I am slowly altering our songbooks, there are now plenty of gaps in the work in progress so if you have any you would like adding please let me know.
 
 
 
See you all on Thursday
