We were sold out again for this night with Pippa. (We even brought in an extra table in the afternoon.) What a great night it was: Pippa was in fine voice and the band managed to keep up with her. Only a couple of surprises for Pippa but, this time, she had some surprise lyrics […]

Earlier that […]

This event drew together several musical contacts. It’s been some years since Kevin backed Buddy, so he was pleased to renew the musical acquaintance of Buddy Love.
