From left to right Maryann is on recorder, Andy Jenkinson is playing lute, then Tabatha Pegg singing lead, Michael on Lute and Alex on drums. We played through our set a few times and it went down well! If you’re interested in seeing us play our next performance is at the Leicester Guildhall on August the 4th at 12.30.
