Subject: Redwing Barndance
Can you tell me if you are doing any public barn
dances in Kent in the near future? I have a group of friends who love barn
dances, but finding out where the public ones are is hard!
I've passed on the usual trawl through Webfeet /
Folking.com / Kentfolk.com but have certainly found a dearth of information
about Barn/Ceilidh dance in Kent.
Anyone know a good source of information?
Could any bands doing public dances in Kent in the next
two months let me know where and when - so that I can pass this information
along AND get them listed
on the What's On webpage. Thanks.
Had a telephone call yesterday
from a gent looking for residential music making around the Sussex area. He said that
Halsway Manor and IoW are getting
too far - so maybe quite elderly.
i can't find anything (Sore Fingers in the Cotswolds / Burwash Bash in
Cambridge). Does ANYONE know anywhere down south?
EFDSS passed them on to me - so
that route would appear to be closed!

taking the guitar. The police have been informed and are following up on this

a minority of players. "The left handed guitar fraternity is a close knit group
and any instrument that comes on the market is going to be spotted instantly"
says Jon Wood, the musician whose guitar has been taken. "I guess these were
opportunist thieves but they’ve ended up with a highly specialised
has owned the guitar for over 10 years and the band are going into the recording
studio this month to record their latest album. "I don’t know what I’ll do
without my guitar for the recording sessions, this is devastating for
