As we were finishing our dinners it became apparent that something was afoot. Tables were being moved and people were producing musical instruments. It turned out Wednesday Night is Folk Music night at the Bankfoot Inn.
Anyone is invited to bring along an instrument or a song and the rest of us joined in with the tunes we knew. The variety of instruments was enormous - there were nine musicians and most had at least two instruments. There were also some men and women who sang solo pieces a cappella. The evening started with a Buddy Holly number so I felt quite at home singing along. The quality of the pictures is not brilliant because I didn't want to use flash as it might have disturbed the musicians. Relying on the light from the lamps made for very slow shutter speeds.

Then it was off to bed up the winding staircase of this 18th Century coaching inn.
