Life as a dep can be fun in the sun (not so good for pipe tuning tho!)
Great day recording for The Mile Roses forthcoming album – amazing recording venue too. I had to drive round the block twice to make sure I had the right place!
Nice shot of the Duet…
And here’s the finished product – really pleased to have been part of this, well done guys!
I was delighted to play at the NPS Annual Concert held in the Mining Institute building – well worth a visit if you are in NEWCASTLE
We got to play in Neville Hall houses the memorial to the Institute’s first President, Nicholas Wood, an outstanding Victorian Library resplendent filled with superb stonework, redolent with exquisite carved stone, wood and paintings with a beautifully decorated ceiling, a vast glass roof and filled with furniture designed for the library in 1872. Below the Library is the Edwardian Lecture Theatre, modeled on the Royal Institution in London and constructed in deep red Cuban Mahogany. Wow!
