Brrrr !!… We had our first taste of life under canvas for this season last night. We played for Cliviger’s Jubilee celebrations in a “Marquee”. The term might suggest something sheltering, but in fact this flimsy object which threatened to levitate in the howling pennine gale was a conduit for the biting wind.
My genes and nurture have furnished me with a protective layer of insulation, but poor Bob was turning Blue, and could hardly finger his Guitar. Cosima and her band of helpers did a wonderful job, and the evening was a great success, but I couldn’t help thinking that Base Camp on Everest would have been warmer.There was so much about the evening that was quintessentially British, and fitting such a Royal Occasion.
We next conquer Walmersley Golf Club high on the moors above Bury, fortunately in the Clubhouse, then we are back in the elements for Ribchester Festival on the 16th (memo to God :- please spare us your worst weather !) yes it’s another Marquee !
I’m still getting desperate pleas for Ceilidhs this month even, plus July and August, we really are up to our limit in this period. If you are surfing, make your mind up now about Autumn Spring and Summer, to avoid the disappointment I have to dish out on a WEEKLY BASIS,
