Fringe Benefits

It's another first for our choir tonight as we're performing in the Corsham Arts Festival Fringe at 7.30 pm in the Town Hall. We'll be reviving the successful rendition of 'a traditional Welsh folk song', as seen in Stratford earlier this year and currently available above via YouTube in our Wiltshire Wailers incarnation.

Tonight we're the Pound Sound i.e. just those of us who rehearse at the Pound Arts Centre in Corsham. We're flying solo without our Bradford on Avon and Hullavington buddies. Our set tonight is a crowd pleaser* and includes (not necessarily in this order):

Chris' male only choir, the AK47s will also be performing and will join us for Haul away Joe, complete with pirate outfits apparently. It should be a lively evening, especially as we'll be going down the pub afterwards ;)

* = so come on down if you can - we're a bargain £3 on the door :)

Update: Here's the review of our performance in the local paper - an 'explosion of musical delight' :D


  1. Had a bit of a sing song myself last night at a Crowded House concert in Amsterdam.

    Have lots of fun and I hope many will come to hear you all sing.

  2. Dang, I wish I could be there - A capella singing AND pirate outfits! Who could ask for more?

  3. Yolanda - a week ago it looked like the choir might outnumber the audience. But there was a late rush for tickets last night, which meant there was standing room only :)

    MMD - the pirate outfits went down rather well. I was sporting a rather nifty tricorn hat!


I love hearing from you and welcome thoughtful conversations :)
