Also as a first, this evening is open to any stringed acoustic instrument (incl. bowed) you fancy playing, ie mandolins, banjo, guitar, balalaika, zither, fiddle etc. So, no thank you to washboards, glockenspiels, trumpets, tubas, accordions etc please.
No solo performances please, we will all play together.

The Exbury Club are, as usual, happy for us to use the function room where we can play some HUG songs, some of Harry’s tunes and do some solos or small group songs as well. usual time, 7.30 pm to 9.30 or we can go on a bit longer for those who have the stamina.
