As a lot of us are involved in music ourselves, I thought this would be a good place to share what we are up to, and even generate an audience!  I'm going to begin by completely unselfish and plugging this band - I'm related to two of them, see if you can guess which two!

They played at the Open Stage night at Ride a Cock Horse folk club a couple of weeks ago.  I don't remember the tall dark chap being there though.  Were you?

He's the drummer and also happens to be a vicar!

The only time I've seen them play was when they had a gig in Manchester.  Girl on far left is my sister-in-law-in-law, and one third of the Bailey Sisters, chap next to the vicar is my brother-in-law.

Well they're jolly good.  The singer/harpist is the vicar's wife, I believe.  Not your typical vicar and Mrs Vicar, are they?

Fab isn't she?  She writes most of the music too.  Paul (the vicar) has a Myspace page where he posts his sermons!

Now I really am going to plug myself!  (hope it's not too painful!)

I sing with a small chamber choir called Duodecimo and we have a concert coming up on 21st June at Emmanuel Church in Didsbury, South Manchester.  We will be singing early music by Byrd, Gibbons and and Tomkins and will be joined by Drake's Viols. 

More details here: http://www.myspace.com/duodecimo
and here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=53105595104

We do have a website but for some reason, it only shows past engagements!

My turn - I will be playing and dancing with the Bampton Traditional Morris Dancers (as opposed to the Traditional Bampton Morris Dancers or the Bampton Morris Men ;) ) next monday, in Bampton, Oxfordshire. There will also be music in the pubs over the weekend so come and have a watch / listen if you are stuck for something to do on a bank holiday weekend!

We thought about popping over on the Monday. Never been before but always wanted to.
Any advice about parking etc?

There arent any particular problems with parking but avoid the centre of the village. Just try a random street (in the newer part is easier) and plonk it anywhere!

The dancing in the morning is mainly in gardens, and in the afternoon / evening moves onto the streets, joined by guest teams at about 6 ish, going on til 8 or 9. Make sure you see all the teams - my lot has Abingdon and Chipping Camden a guests (not sure who else)

The Bampton Morris Men are also worth watching, they usually have good guest teams and their Squire is a great fiddle player.

In the evening there are a few sessions going on, and the pubs get really busy! Finishes about 5.30 am for the hardcore among us!

She's working Monday morning, I meant Monday afternoon we might head up :)
