Music To Do Your Shopping By
Every Saturday morning in August, our local council hires professional musicians to entertain the passers by in the Square. Chairs are put out, so people can sit and listen to the different concerts. I missed the first one, as we were still in Dubai. But yesterday's was a real treat. A folk rock band by the name of Carmina kept everyone entertained for nearly three hours. And in glorious weather too.
They were very good, and Pippa Marland the singer sounded like a mixture of Dido, Enya and Julia Fordham. Everyone who stayed to listen seemed to enjoy the songs. They are returning to Beeston in October, when they are appearing in a concert at a local church. I'll shall be buying tickets very shortly.
If you are interested in hearing what they sound like, here's a link to their website.
