Leeds Silver Steel Sparrows at Leeds Town Hall for Barnardo's Benefit

Well Debs,
band with Sid
It's months since a good gig, and now we have done it. On St David's Day the Sparrows were at Leeds Town Hall. They were Peter, Chloe, Little Georgia, Danielle, Amy, Ciara, [a very surprised] Hannah, Claudia, Naomi, and we were Natalie, me and Tim.
me, Vanessa and Danielle

The presenter was Sid from CBBs, who agreed to pose with us as we were packing away.  We played our Music For Youth set: Dreamed a Dream, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Jar of Hearts and I Will Alays Love You. Plus joint numbers with all the choirs: Barnado's and One Voice. We did try playing kit for these joint numbers but the time delay was just too much. Or was it my kit playing, before Natalie arrived?

Barnardo's: the tune was written by Douglas Coombes, who just happens to be the husband of Carole Lindsay who is the national distributor for the Foxwood Songsheets, and who also wrote one of our signature tunes: Lazy Coconut. Vanessa [also from ArtForms] conducted the joint bands, and we all went home shattered. But happy.
