First Dobro Outing

My mate Alex is (among other things) a banjo player. He’s having a party in a couple of weeks and getting some musician mates to bring instruments for an evening of folk.

He sent me a few tunes to learn and then he came round with his friend Jacqui, who is an accordion and ukulele player, for a rehearsal.

We ran through some tunes* then headed off, instruments in hand, to the folk session at The Grosvenor in Stockwell.

They were exceedingly welcoming and encouraged us to play all night, and the bar is licensed ’til 5am!
