Something Nasty in the Woodshed?

Oh yes there was - and when we saw what it was it was very good!

Yesterday evening began with a meal, we were joined by some fellow narrowboaters, Dave Parry and Kate Saffin at The Bridge at Napton.

The "listener"!
Eventually, after a really good natter and a few drinks we went to the "event" - the Winter Folk Festival, also in the pub. We had missed the first two hours! Anyway we watched and listened for the rest of the evening and well into the night.

First up were Scarecrow - an acoustic band and very enjoyable.

They "do the rounds" of various Folk Clubs and play a variety of instruments.

Next were a new band (one year old) - The Falllows, a group of lads who made music to make the stage fall down around them!

Deliberate camera angle - not a drunk photographer!
They certainly had fun and it took me back to my youth when a group of friends would get together and perform on stage at our local church hall! Heavy rhythm and lots of guitar!

The best was kept to last, by which time the programme was running well behind schedule. Something Nasty In the Woodshed were worth waiting for. Brilliant - folk rock, foot tapping, head nodding and body swaying music!

Barry Steele, vocalist and bagpipes

My Scottish "bit" absolutely loved the bagpipes, in a confined space and small stage it was both "intimate" and ear bashing.

Today there is more. John has already gone to the pub and I shall follow later - jobs to do, blog to write, dinner to cook - you know how it is girls! Am I typecast ......
