Phew what a week!
Thanks to all those of you who came to the gig last Saturday and were kind and supportive in light of the last minute changes to plan!! For those who weren't there a full review will be on the website in the next week or so. In short - Dave Swarbrick woke up after returning late from Italy, with an infection and his doctor instructed him not to travel. With only an hour and a half's notice, Megson agreed to step in and did a magnificent job. Huge thanks also must go to Jim Laslett for stepping into their role as support and kicking off what ended up a great evening in the Barn. It meant a lot to me that only 6 people decided not to stay.
And many of those that did have emailed to say what a great concert it turned out to be. I really had no option but to continue with the gig as at such short notice I couldn't have contacted everyone, some people were already en-route!
As I promised I've donated £1 a head plus other donations made by some of you to the AAT in support of Uiscedwrs Anna Esslemont. In total £128 was sent from Folk in the Barn.
I hope and pray Anna makes a full recovery and we can finally get to see Uiscedwr in concert in the Barn sometime next year.
A final bit of good news before we end 2006 for Folk in the Barn. I've just heard that the wonderful John Tams and Barry Coope will be coming to play for us at the Cathedral venue on April 21st.
