Hello Folks

Here we are in the umpteenth week (that’s what it feels like) of isolation. Although, for some of us who are blessed with space around us it can be quite stimulating. Personally, for me this means focusing on my next ukulele recording project without any distractions. For a committed procrastinator like me the time is proving invaluable. As for Helen, she is beavering away making face masks for the local care homes as well as , of course, Grayshott Bags which are still popular with those who can still shop.

For the June session we have special guest Ron Drake. Ron is a seasoned clarinetist who has played with them all – Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk and even the Temperance Seven, I remember Ron depping with us at a Festival in North Wales some time ago. I think the only band Ron hasn’t been associated with, to my knowledge, is Chris Barber – but I’m prepared to stand corrected on this point.

Here is a mouth watering track of what to expect at some time in the future…

Keep safe everyone

Mike
