Quite a few people have asked me whether there will be music at the Sandgrounder Beer Festival, as there has been some disappointment in recent years that, apart from me playing, there hasn't been any. This was due to the surcharge imposed by the Arts Centre for live bands, although they didn't charge extra for just me and my guitar. There will be some live music on Saturday (Thursday and Friday are still there for those real ale drinkers whose taste buds don't seem to work if there's music in the background!).
Saturday afternoon:me! Just me and my guitar with songs from the 1950s onwards, mostly covers, but with a few originals in the mix. A couple of CDs by the band I play in, the Lunchtime Legends, will be on sale.
Saturday evening:Gallimaufry, a local band which plays a range of music from folk dance tunes to traditional and contemporary songs, with the odd bit of jazz and classical thrown in for good measure. And, yes, that is a double bass in the picture, and he certainly knows how to play it.
