V. busy, sorry for April Cal. being so late. Here is the May one as well.

Had a great 10 days in Ireland - traditional sessions every night but two, and three sessions in Ennis on the Sunday.

Look here again soon, have news I hope to have a chance to upload (but computers dying on me again as well).
Still more computer problems, but a partial gig update, more to come - done.
Yet more computer problems, but today my hard disk seems to be working - a partial news update of some really urgent things, lots more to come.

Something way overdue - sorry Andy ! :
Camine now have a most excellent web page :

Open Stage : ring Trevor on 01227 731 549. Am looking forward to this, I missed the last one.

Kentish lass Saskia Tomkins (brilliant fiddle) is returning to play there soon, with visiting American traditional and contemporary singer, musician and songwriter Dana Robinson on Monday May 27th.
8 pm (doors open 7.15). Tickets 6 on the night or 5 in advance, available from Canterbury Whole Foods. Tel: 01227 464 623.

And an excellent evening it was too, with an intimate musical view from Dana of the real America. Excellent all acoustic sound, complemented by the wood in this pleasant new venue - do try it - Saskia is promising more music here - it was a real treat to hear her other than in a crowded pub.

On the previous day there is also great fiddle at the Brook Theatre, Chatham, with Ian Cutler : Slaughterhouse - The Live Concert - Some great names (15 in all) are playing the album live - Colin Reece, Peter Knight, Guido Rincon from "Shave the Monkey", Val Cutler, Hugh Crabtree and Martin from "Feast of Fiddles".
