On Friday 31st January at the Octagon Theatre at 7.30 pm we will be able to hear a selection of writing by Boltonians including many contributions by Bank Street Writers. I always seem to be elsewhere when this is on but am making an effort this year to be there. Tickets are available from the Octagon. I am informed the event sells out.
We were slightly down in numbers with only ten musicians at this singalong, but the quality was good. As expected, there were quite a few Everlys tributes given the recent demise of Phil Everly. A wide range of other music was played ranging from the Beatles to traditional folk songs to Gershwin to players' own compositions. This evening is a good opportunity for local musicians to try out their material in a supportive environment. Most solo efforts are accompanied instrumentally and vocally by other musos present. I'll try to remember to take some photos next time.
