Wrapping up 2011

Thanks to everyone who has been with us throughout this year - other artists, the people who have booked us for events and services, and people who have encouraged us along the way during our 26 engagements.

Over the past few days we've had the privilege of sharing a Christmas musical evening at Craigavon Civic Centre with Commons Silver Band from Newry; another Christmas evening at the Spectrum Centre on the Shankill Road with Jamie Stuart (author of The Glasgow Bible) and others, and just this evening at the Iron Hall on Templemore Avenue in East Belfast where we met some folk who remember meeting musical heroes of ours, Seth & Bessie Sykes, on their many visits to our side of the water.

Over the second half of this year we've tried out a fair amount of new material, so we'll now take a break until Burns Night when we'll once again be with Willowfield Parish (also in east Belfast) for their annual event. Keep an eye on our diary as it fills up - we'll be in your part of the country at some point next year!
