F No - but it could be if the price was right.

Like Steve I remember it with some embarrassment. I got up to sing and asked Norman Cross if I could borrow his guitar. There were mutterings in the audience which I now realise were, "Crutch, crutch, crutch!" (Accompanied singing was only ok with a concertina.)

But it was the first place where I ever sang in harmony! Thanks to Steve and Pam Brown. The song was 'The Wedding Song' (Copper Family?) and Steve had to teach me the bass part note by note.
