We had a very enjoyable time playing at the ‘Christmas Wassail Evening’ in the Saxon Hall, Raunds as guests of Raunds Community Choir on 9th December 2017. The event included performances by the choir and by students from Manor School as well as some poetry readings and community carols. We played some of our favourites including parts of the Connemara Suite, Carnavalito and, in a festive mood, the traditional Spanish Christmas song ‘Brincan y Bailan’. This is the poster for the event …
