Gatwick Pastimes https://youtu.be/vbPf2kYN_-g Late November. I had just finished my 2015 tour of English folk clubs. An easy drive to Gatwick, returned the car, checked my bags, bought my duty free whisky and waited, waited, waited for the flight information to come up on the big board. Which gate was I to go to for my flight back home to New York? Finally, an announcement... a four hour delay! What to do, to pass the time? There was a giant Santa’s sleigh in the middle of the giant atrium, so I took my seat and played concertina for a few happy hours as travelers hurried by. A nice gentleman from Iceland kindly agreed to take my phone and make a video, and here it is. You can hear me playing the Hungarian Railway Polka by Swedish fiddler Magnus Bäckström which seemed appropriate somehow.
