A wonderful day yesterday with 51 people walking, followed by a great gig at Ludlow Brewery. It’s a fantastic venue, very nice people and outstanding beer! It was a sold-out show with plenty of highlights including Rowan singing new songs from her EP. Sound engineer Tim Porter did his usual excellent job to pull the whole thing together.
One of the goals for all of this year’s walking is to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and last night’s audience added £199 to the collecting tins – a magnificent effort which takes us a step closer to our next goal: to reach £2,000 by the end of this week. Those of you not able to join us during the tour can always donate online: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/John-Jones-Oysterband – it’s an incredibly worthwhile cause!
Today it is overcast and we are down to 36 walkers; but we do have the whole band walking. We’ve just left Ludlow, crossing the River Tene by the Dinham bridge. Now for Bringewood Chase, and lunch at Downton – it would be great to see people there.
The Ramblers are on the road again!
