Subject: Dwyle flunking video and more

Dear Everyone,
 
DWYLE FLUNKING VIDEO
Edited highlights of Sunday's dwyle flunking match at the Lewes Arms can be seen at http://www.hutc.tv/. Over 200 was raised for the Rhys Jones Memorial Fund.

Pictures have already appeared here (best viewed as a slideshow). There is a good one of the band, who finished the match exceptionally well-bribed, here . The picture was taken before the arrival of piper Dirk Campbell with a magnificent central European bagpipe called the dudu (I think) which appears to be a hollowed-out goat with cow-horns for drones. It plays in G. People realise this instinctively as their first utterance on seeing the instrument is usually something like 'Gee!'

The next match will be on Sunday 17th. August against the Lewes Operatic Society. Appropriate tunes are already under discussion.
 
TUNES SESSION with DOCTOR'S ORDERS _at_ Lewes Arms Folk Club, Saturday 14th. June, 3 admission.
Doctor's Order's are Cliff Baylis and Jenny Huggett. Bring instruments to join in; singers welcome too.
 
JOHN HARVEY TUNES SESSION, TUESDAY 1ST. JULY
This will be led by Dan and Matt Quinn, 'The Mighty Quinns'.

Tootle pip,
 
Valmai
