Many other venues lost in the mists of time...

And we are always happy to play in new venues too ....

Thank you so much for playing at the wedding, it all sounded so beautiful, although you think people are not listening several people came up to me later on and remarked on different pieces that you played. I hope you were not too cold having to play outside in the quad but it was such a fantastic setting and an opportunity not to be missed. Hopefully you all enjoyed playing in such a fabulous building. Thank you all once again.
