Updates to sessions list

The sessions list has received a major makeover courtesy of Sally who has kindly provided a list of revisions. Sad to see a number of sessions have disappeared but good to see some new additions have been added to the list to compensate.
However there are still a number of sessions from which I have received no feedback for a considerable time so if you know of any others that are no longer happening it only takes a moment to put a note on the message board and you may save someone a wasted journey.

Craig's list

This message was posted by Craig back in March and had disappeared down the board so I thought it worth  a re-post to refresh our minds.
 It lists some Northants sessions which I hope are still running,

(1) The George, High Street North, Tiffield, Northants. NN12 8AD, on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, from 8:45 - turn up, plug in, crack on. (2) The Plough, Watling Street East, Towcester, Northants. NN12 6BT, usually on the third Thursday of each month, from 7 'til 10 - a growing Open Mic which sometimes relaxes into an acoustic thing. (3) The New Inn, Silver Street, Abthorpe, Northants. NN12 8QR, on the second Sunday of each month from 3:30 - solos, duos, bands - try it. (4) The Plough, High Street, Everdon, Northants. NN11 3BL, on the third Saturday of each month, from 8:30.

Message from Kevin Adams

Hi everyone

First, my apologies for piggy-backing on Pete's session list, and
secondly my regrets that I never get to play with you all any more.
Sadly, my MS has progressed and my hands are unable to play stringed
instruments at all now. (No change there then??)

But... I am still making music- hurrah for computers! So here are the

I have finished off a collection of songs which I began recording back
when I could play. It's called 'Sheltermore' and you can hear the songs
(You can also download them if you are feeling generous enough to pay a
small fee :) ) My other two CDs, 'The Common Land' and 'Waiting   For
the Word', are also available on the Bandcamp site.

I have more music to hear at StudioBlend on Soundcloud:
This is a mixture of work in progress, archive bits and pieces and the
more layered and orchestral stuff which is how I hope to work from now on.

Last advert: I am selling my instruments, because they deserve to be
played rather than hung on the wall looking sorry for themselves. They
are: Gibson mandolin, Martin Cole octave mandolin, Fender Telecaster USA
1978, Fender Capistrano acoustic and a cheap but nice, playable, Chinese
12 string acoustic. Get in touch if any of these are of interest.

I might even sell my fiddle to the right person...

End of waffle, thanks for reading this far if you have, and keep making
great music together.

Lots of love


ps if anyone feels like tweeting or Facebooking any of this I'd be very
