Wednesday: blue funk and a ukulele

It's the last Wednesday of the month which means
its time to get your Ukulele out and get along to the
Boarhound pub.Or just go along and applaud.

Meanwhile in Poynton, well, over to Garry the Hat to
'Now here’s a thing, Chris Cook has cancelled
his tour until next spring.
Sad but every cloud apparently
does have a silverlining. Instead of
coming with Chris,
Jim has put together what can justifiably be described
as a blues supergroup for a Bluefunk ’exclusive’, one
off event. This collaboration of
top drawer musicians
has never happened before and who knows, may
happen again. Ignore this at your peril,
this is very likely to be one
of those ’I was there’
sort of gigs. Feast your eyes on this lot. Jim
