Hello music loving friends,
I hope you all had a wonderful & bountiful Thanksgiving weekend with family & friends, and fared well in any shopping skirmishes you may have encountered in the days following, but whatever the outcome, tomorrow night at St Andrew is going to be brilliant, as we have two featured guests coming to perform!

They’ll be joined by guest David Brewer (that’s me!) on pipes, pennywhistles, & bodhran.
