CORONAVIRUS!
Update 29th October 2020
We have greatly missed playing our gigs this year! We would normally be planning gigs for next year during this month and November. But with the continuing uncertainty of when “live gigs” will again be possible, we are holding back until the beginning of 2021 before we even consider what plans might be possible.

In the meantime, we have copies of both our CDs and also Margaret’s tune book for sale by post. You might also like to commision a new tune from Margaret. See the CDs and Tunes pages for more details.
