What’s going on? (November 2020)

 A number of people have been in touch asking what’s going on, so I thought I’d post an update. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in thinking that the rules, guidelines and application of the tier system are at best arbitrary. I am very clear that I do believe that Covid remains a serious problem […]

Little Music Makers going live in 2020

I am delighted to be able to announce that live Music Makers sessions will recommence this Thursday. Following on from initial discussions with Ken Flood, the vicar at St Clement’s Church, we’ve got the green light to resume work. Long post alert! Please read the following carefully. These sessions cannot currently be run on the […]

Some great parties last week!

Dear all, The shows are going well and we’re really on a roll now. Fab Mouse has been joined by his sister Oregano. Mike the Microphone continues to keep the show on the road. Our bunny, called Bunny, is very good at method acting and playing the role of Peter Rabbit! Mick Jaguar remains a […]

Amusing feedback

I’ve since taken actions to make sure this doesn’t happen again. I’ve reprimanded the secretary – that’d be me. I’ve issued a […]

Mick Jaguar and Fab Mouse coming your way

Dear all, Not only those two characters but also Mike the Microphone. If this all goes on much longer everything will have a name, my daughter will have taken over the show entirely and I’ll be in my dotage somewhere! For the last three weeks we’ve managed to stream live sessions with good audio and […]

Music Makers – KBO!!!

Dear all, If you haven’t come across that acronym before it’s from Churchill. He used to suffer from depression, he called it “the Black Dog”. Whenever things got tough he used to say to himself, “KBO, KBO”. It means “Keep B*ggering On”. I don’t know about anyone else but the reality of this situation is […]

The show goes on – virtually

Dear all, On we go in the strange virtual world. I’m beginning to miss the physical reality of seeing people. However, all your feedback about what we’re doing keeps us on our toes and is a reminder that we’re not just playing and singing to ourselves in the front room! Please find the links for […]
