I just want to say a BIG thank you to all of you who came last Thursday and made for me a really memorable evening.
Thank you to all who so generously gave cards and presents.
Thank you to all who provided food, laid the tables out, and at the end of the evening cleared up as I enjoyed the closing moments of my special day.
I hope you all enjoyed the music. It WAS recorded. If you want to hear it all again go to:-
I must thank all who provided that music:-
Roy Williams, Gill Cook and Duncan Lamont Jr guests for the evening.
Our more regular performers, Lester Brown, Nigel Fox, Ken McCarthy, Steve Riddle, and of course Martin Hart.
Then there was that surprise song from Charlie Wren where nearly all the lyrics were made up of tune titles. It was written especially for my birthday.
All in all for me it was a wonderful evening, with many of my friends from long ago coming many miles to share with me my kind of party.
So THANK YOU all again for creating it.
