thanks for your messages,
i think we may have briefly met at Otley folk festival last year - i like the sound of the french music sessions in leeds, I'm in Marsden and on local transport so its a bit hectic getting back on an evening, I'm determined to get there eventually but it may take some time.
hopefully i shall see you there in the future
i was in Heptonstall last month for the pace eggers - aren't they brilliant! do you play anywhere regularly? i know they have a few sessions at the pub at the bottom of the village, the fox and something? or the something and fox? i'm pretty sure there is a fox in there somewhere. have you got the hang of the drone yet? i haven't got a book or anything (which i know i really should have) so everything is guess work at the moment. i think i could do with seeing other people playing a bit more just to make sure i'm not playing it upside down or anything!
i love the look of your blue hurdy gurdy
