A splendid day, today, playing from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Witton Park in Blackburn. This was our first visit to Witton Park, but hopefully not our last as the organisers were very enthusiastic about a return visit next year! Watch this space!
We played from one of the buildings off the courtyard at the top end of the drive and despite the rain, a supportive audience gathered to sing along or listen. A number of new tunes got tried out too - I unleashed my solo version of the Christina Aguilera hit "The Voice Within" early on in the day and it went well enough to repeat it later on! Also tried out a fast new country song, "I Try To Think About Elvis" which was released by Patty Loveless a few years ago.
Bob's mandolin playing went down a treat as usual and we had a number of people singing along to their favourites from either folk, country or sixties sets.
