Well played everyone at the Bodmin Rotary Concert. Congratulations to all the soloists but also a great effort from everyone! More concerts like that would be great :D
Thank you so much for the tribute to Goff at Uppermill. It was very special and something which I will always remember.
Saw you in Liskeard - BRILLIANT!!
Thank you for the kind comments regarding our performance yesterday. We really do appreciate the feedback and hopefully we will build upon this success over the coming months.
I also heard you yesterday at Yeovil and thought you deserved to come higher in the rankings. Well done for putting an unashamed march at the beginning of your routine, it really got me into the rest of your programme. And the finalle - 1712 - just brilliant.
Just listened to you at the Yeovil Entertainment Contest - I thought you were amazing - loved the version of the 1712!!! I am really glad that your percussionists won the prize - well done! If I am in Cornwall and see you playing, will definitely come and listen.
