There seemed to be a bit of demand amongst a few local musicians for a "music only" session to complement the singers and musicians nights at pubs in nearby Bentham and Burton in Lonsdale. So we approached Sabine, landlady at the Old Hill Inn, our local at the end of Philpin Lane. She didn't seem totally opposed to the idea so the inaugural session was held on Thursday 1st of March with the idea of making it a regular event on the first Thursday of the month.
It was well received by the musicians (I think we managed about eight) and by the audience (both of them) so Sabine has agreed to let us have another go. It's scheduled for the first Thursday in April, the 5th, which is the day before Good Friday.
Watch this space to see how it goes.
