Well the new Fiddlers Various venue, the Plough & Harrow in Bridge, seems to be a success - the `Ish gig with Saskia Tomkins & Brendon Scott Besharah could not have fitted one more person in the door, and numerous people said how much they liked both the music and venue :
" 'Ish' at Bridge..
Thank you for a wonderful evening...the music and entertainment was unsurpassed, the venue worked very well, the whole company was like being with a bunch of friends in the living room while two other friends jammed happily for us! Oh and the beer was good too! Well done. "
