Heard at an otherwise excellent evening at Marlow Bottom tonight.

"I really need a melodeon player for this one".

Any advance on that?

This is genuine, in a folk session near Bradford University, where I'm playing tenor banjo and mandolin, some geeky looking student asked me if we knew any Atomic Kitten.

Last night at a sea shanty session a guy starts singing, an accordian player steps in off key to back him up, a women comes over & askes him to stop he throwing the singer off. He's says "it's the singer whose off not me".
After the 3rd person said he was off key he packed up & went home.

Let's sum up, then: you're a group of 3 primary school teachers, who play guitar, tambourine and recorder, and you do plenty of those songs with actions that the audience can join in with. You're just what we're looking for!
