Information

London and nearby

A group for those near to London, weather you live near or just feel near spiritually. Even if you've never been to the "Great Metrolops" but feel some sort of emotional connection. Hope it helps people down south to co-ordinate a bit.

Maybe we could hire one of these pods for a 20min jam session?

U.K. friends,   Justin Johnson and Nikki will be in Europe in October and the UK for a week or so.  If you get a chance to hear him play, please don't miss the opportunity.  He is excellent and he and Nikki are really good, down to earth people.

If you go to see him, go introduce yourselves and I suggest that you take along a cbg.   Good chance Justin will play it.   I think Justin and Nikki are on a bit of a tight budget - so he may be glad for any help you can give him.

Have a good autumn,

John

Following the cancellation of the Shindig this year we are planning a 2 day music festival next year. Probably end of May in a big marquee at Kingsteignton Rugby Club.  Limited camping may be available provided you are willing to act as overnight security. Will be looking for acts for both days and anyone who wishes to set up a stall may do so but there will be a small charge to cover our overheads.  More to follow but do let me know if you are interested in playing
