Yianni and Roberto in session

Saturday 25th February 2017
secret woodland location near Canterbury

Just another mellow evening rebetiko session. Yiannis and Roberto were planning to come with their Greek/American friends Konstantis and Laura, but they'd had to fly to Paris for a sudden family emergency, so it was just the two of them. But Frances Knight was in the audience, and her accordion was in her vehicle parked nearby, so Yiannis urged her to go and get it, and the three of them played beautifully together (despite her not knowing the tunes). Transporting. I joined on saz at the end for "St. James Infirmary", nice to get a chance to play with them all together. A lovely little crew that night, too, with some surprising, unexpected connections made between people.
