Thanks to Paul Hardy, Greenshoots and Chiltinas

Recommended Posts

I want to express my profound gratitude to Paul Hardy and to the musicians who make up the  Greenshoots and Chiltinas sessions.  I am a church music director living and working in Dallas, Texas.  I bought an English concertina last Christmas and have taught myself to play it this past year. Recently I was in Cambridge for two weeks studying and observing the great collegiate choirs there.  While there I wanted to experience some live music sessions.  Paul picked me up in Cambridge and provided transport to a Greenshoots session on a Monday evening at the Black Horse Pub and to the Chiltinas sessions at St Marys Church Hall in Malden on a Sunday.  What lovely experiences.  Thank you to Paul and all the players for your generous hospitality.

 I hope one day to return to your "green and pleasant land."

 

Cheers,

Douglas

(modestly) Thanks for the thanks. We enjoyed having you and Lori to visit. The English concertina fraternity is small enough that meeting distant cousins is welcome and refreshing.
