Subject: April 15 Les Batons with Mistral!


A great Mothers' Day bal with SE3 and now Mistral for April!!! Lovely harmonies on violin, melodeon and voice from Chris & Caroline.

Musicians - don't forget the session at 12 noon. Richard Jones will be looking at arrangements of Halsway Schottische and also "La Nina" - a lovely 8-time Waltz.

4 entry for the afternoon.

An update on Phil - he's now out of hospital and recuperating at home. Hopefully he'll be able to join us at Les Batons soon! A big thanks to those of you who visited, phoned etc.


Plans are well advanced - Sat 19 & Sun 20 Jan - the first dates for your (new!) diary!

Headline acts are Moltenamba (, English Nyckelharpa Collective ( and Kerry Fletcher (

So, a wonderful mix of musical styles for the bal and of course Kerry's brilliant teaching!

Looking forward to seeing/playing/dancing/chatting with you!
