Something New!

There's a new section on the website. 'Hand Made on Sunny Smedley. Yes, that's right, I'm trying to put Smedley on the map, and that's where my workshop is based. In this 'department' you will find a hist of odd, strange and wacky things to buy. From used Polish Apple Crates to Strange timepieces in the 'Cloquirk' section. From 'Random Letters' to 'Really Crap Cards' there's sure to be something you haven't seen before (and may not want to see again to be honest) Anyway, pop over and have a shuftie - after all, it's only 120 days till Christmas.

These placards will then for the central elem

Oh! What A Night

Well, Mancunia delivered everything we had hoped for - and more! ​ This inspirational trio graced the stage with impeccable arrangements, stunning musicianship and even a few 'technical difficulties' thrown in for effect ! ​ They now move on to Festval bookings including the prestigious Cropredy Festival, but it is good to know that wherever they go and whatever they do WE HAD THEM FIRST. The wonderful Hayes Sisters (with surprise 'sister' Clive Gregson) gave us a wonderful start to the evening and were themselves worth the admission money! ______________________________________________________________________ We now look forward to bringing more live Roots and Acoustic music to the Ukrainia
