BlokeFest Brilliant (again)

What can we say that hasn't already been said by anyone who attended "BlokeFest Up North"?  Nowt...

It was yet another fabulous weekend of bonhomie and beautiful singing, some of it even in the bar.

Thanks to all the Blokes who made it happen and quite so brilliant - here's to next year - an anticipation that brings a smile to one's face at the mere thought.

BlokeFest is calling us North

It might go a little quiet around here for a wee while as Magnificent activities tail off for the summer and other things take up our time, such as trogging up North for BlokeFest.

This inspired annual gathering of the clans of BlokeSong is hitching its Big Top and pitching in the very lovely locale of Ilkley, being hosted thanks to some regular BlokeFesters from thereabouts.

Its sure to be a cracking affair so we will provide a post match review in due course.

Till then, keep singing in the sun!

Rattlebone Postponed

Sadly despite it being a lovely late Spring day today the anticipation is that it is going to proverbially rain cats and dogs and possible frogs tomorrow so as the gig was due to be conducted largely in the Open Air the decision has been taken to cancel our scheduled performance due to or owing to the bad weather forecast*.

Sorry about that.

* any grammarians care to enter into a convoluted debate about the good/ungood aspects of the previous sentences will be encouraged to fill the time we would have otherwise spent singing...

Returning to Rattlebone

They say "never, go back, never seek to repeat your previous glories", well we ask, "what to 'they' know?"!

It's a cracking good pub, we had a lovely time when we first performed there, they clearly enjoyed us because they've asked back (and they didn't have to!), it's not too far away, and they serve quality food and ales...

What's not to like?

Even the weather might have perked up by the time we get there to lower the tone -
