It's been more than a year since I've contributed any musings but, thanks to Rob and those who send us stuff, the site has done well without me!... |
We celebrated our fifth anniversary in January and I see that we are fast approaching a million page hits - not too bad for a local free site!
I've heard some good bands in the last year - e.g The Hitchcock Rules, Cahooty, All Day Breakfast and Exelby. Many others too - few places have more good pub music than Falmouth. Also, the Slaves are back.
On a darker note - we lost Carol Vinson some months back. The Ferryboaters with husband George some years ago may ring a bell. She had a great jazz voice and could play a mean penny whistle - and my proudest musical moment was to swap a bit of skat with her back in the days of the Manderley!
Also on the downbeat - the Jakes is currently shuttered although there remains hope that a deal may be done.
That's it until next year - as long as bands, fans and venues keep sending articles, forum posts or gigs - then the less you will hear from me!
Cool runnings from the TiGeR.
