The band turned up for a pre-carol service entertainment where we played a selection of carols prior to the main event. It is a lovely setting and we are always pleased to be involved in the community event every year. Well done all.

Our second engagement was on Sunday and saw us contributing to the 100th year celebrations of the Baltimore Lifeboats. Despite the rain the was a good attendance to see the new boat and enjoy the music on offer.
We had a busy weekend in Baltimore. Saturday we played for the West Cork Forum for a Taste of West Cork. It was a lovely spot down in the Baltimore Harbour next to the sailing club and we tried some of our new pieces which worked very well as additions to our programme.
