Wow. That’s the second pluck this week…

Hot on the tail of quartet rehearsal on Wednesday night, and despite the forecast snow, we had an EphenStephen rehearsal last night in preparation for our upcoming 4th concert in this year’s series. The concert will be in August & will feature music from the British Isles, including pieces by Lawes, Dowland, Renbourn, Glyn, Lennon/McCartney and Mercury… S1 was on the customary spruce/rosewood Howell & I thought that it’d be a nice outing for the 1968 Kohno. Along with the Lagavulin & Twinings (not Yorkshire, unfortunately!), we reckon that’s not bad company for an evening.

Anyone who can pick the composer & piece displayed on the iPads gets free entry to the concert. Comments below please!

A plucking good time

Had a rehearsal with our quartet ‘Totally Plucked’ last night. We’ve got an upcoming concert on the 30th August as part of Armidale’s long-standing ‘Music on a Market Sunday’ series, organised by Benjamin Thorn. Rehearsal was great fun – Matt & Ed were both on fine form, as was S1. S2 had some trouble counting the 8 strings and brought too many guitars along. Can you ever have too many guitars? Probably not. But strings, yes! Scarlatti & Bach may not have been amused…

Our programme will include Bach, Scarlatti, Tommis, Cruz and York. Sunday 30th August at 12.30pm in the Armidale Uniting Church. Put it in your diaries!
