Message from Sally re.Oxjam

This years Leighton Buzzard Oxjam Live Music Festival is due to start on 10th March with about 37 different music events of all types and styles throughout March. See the website : www.oxjamleightonbuzzard.org
I have been organising the Folkie end of the spectrum for this and it would be great if some familiar faces could come along for support, and of course to enjoy themselves :

1) Sat 10th March : Barn Dance at Brooklands Community Hall, Garden Leys, Leighton Buzzard LU7 3XP 8 - 11pm
with excellent local band "Calamity's Fling" plus probably yours truly being roped in as an extra fiddle player. A bargain at only £5 ticket available from me (tel. 07757621745) or on the door. Nibbles and bar available. Great fun for all the family, no experience necessary bring your kids and even your granny along !

2) Sat 17th March : St Patricks night open folk session at The Sun Inn, Lake Street, Leighton Buzzard LU7 1RX. 8.30 til late.
The landlord contacted me asking if the musicians would stay at his pub all evening (unlike previous years when we have pub-crawled around town). So he will put on some sandwiches for us - and he did mutter something about free soft drinks for the nominated drivers - so I'll pin him down on that one ! So please all you singers and musicians, do come along and join me for a rollicking Irish night of tunes and songs. I can't do it all on my fiddle lonesome !!

3) Sun 18th March : Ballad & Poetry evening at Morgans Wine Bar, High Street, Leighton Buzzard LU7 1DU 7 - 10.30pm.
A sort of open-mic type set up. There will be some planned spots in the evening, plus others available for whoever turns up on the night, so do let me know if you'd like a spot in advance, (email me or tel. 07757621745) otherwise, do come along on the night.

4) Friday 30th March : Open Folk Session at Ashwell Arms, Ashwell Street. 8.30 til late.
The usual Ashwell monthly folk session, but brought forward a week to be in March. Open to all singers, bards, musicians etc.

Cheers

Sally Mounter
