"I've had a lot of people messaging asking where they can donate etc ... I am incredibly touched by your offers of generosity. I have decided that i am going to try to do 2 live shows a week on Sunday and Wednesday evenings at 6.30 -7.30pm, and I am going to introduce a tip jar for those kind souls that wish to donate. However, as i have already stated, luckily I am in a fortunate position financially at the moment, so at the end of each month I will donate what ever I collect to someone less fortunate than myself. I will continue this for as long as possible, or until i become that less fortunate person. I hope that is ok. See you on wednesday night. Please keep sending your requests of Morris/English ceilidh tunes. Stay safe."

For those who enjoy a good sing, Steven Taberner (leader Spooky Men) is running his Massive Singlet every week. In fact there are four Singlets. The Massive Singlet is 11am UK time on Tuesday mornings, the Massive Singlet kid's edition is 10am UK time Thursday mornings, the Massive Singlet ukelele edition is 12noon UK time on thursdays & the Massive Black Singlet is 8am UK time Sundays. Occasionally, there is also a Spooky Massive Singlet on Saturdays.  All are free (donation invited) & take place via Zoom. See Massive Singlet.com for details and booking. See also the Massive Singlet FaceBook page  (Just don't expect folk music!!)

**Massive Singlet is taking a break now - sign up to Massive Singlet.com to receive details of when the Singlets will restart.**

 

If you can manage it, please consider buying a CD direct from your favourite artistes website. This will help to support them through this difficult time. Buying direct results in more going to the artiste as streaming websites pay a very small amount per play.
