Bowness on Solway Folk Session

A nice evening last night, at the pub session in Bowness on Solway, a reduced crowd due to holidays I guess, but a nice mixture of songs and melodies between the 3 of us.

The young girl who played violin and who also sang border ballads was very good. A guitarist sang songs about Haaf netting and accompanied each of us. I left the pipes at home due to work on the boat, and took my English concertina and played some melodies from Mallorca, Ireland and Northumbria.

There was an audience too that clapped after every tune or song… something which is unusual for us!! A nice session. It starts about 8pm, Sunday evening 2nd Sunday of the month.
