Dispatches from the road from our wayfaring travelers.
Here are some more recordings and video from yesterday’s adventures!
We were at the Cumberland Arms last night. We started some Old Time tunes with our fiddler/rapper dancer friend Thomas. Another man named Tom joined us on the mandolin and after playing Over the Waterfall, asked us if we knew the Volo Bogtrotters! I said, “They’re our mentors!”
Next we played some Soldier’s Joy:
Here are some more recordings from the Bob Dylan jam with Tom, he was really nice to us
We went upstairs to the Rapper Dance rehearsal led by Tom Besford, and were even given a lesson ourselves by Chris and Don. Don has been part of the King’s Men for 33 years! I was able to chat with Tom Cronin who I had met on my last trip. Here’s a sample of their rehearsal.
Don gave us a ride to the station after rehearsal, he was full of great stories…
We’re off to a rehearsal of students from Broomley First School!
