This was our monthly session at St. Stephens church last night. Two long pieces. Two basses at times. Snowing quite heavily (for southwest England) outside.

Mick knows Keith and also met Simon separately recently. He came along to listen to the first half, joined in on the second half.

There was even a small audience (three people, one of whom came to sketch us, I think) who stayed for the whole thing and really seemed to enjoy it.

Simon stayed over at Oblique House afterwards, and we caught the end of a wonderful piece by Jusin Vali (playing a Madagascaran harp-like instrument strung with brake cables) on Radio 3's Late Junction. Simon immediately recognised the artist - I'll have to track some of his stuff down soon.
