I just got back from Towersey Folk Festival where I had a fantastic time catching up with old friends and standing in a converted barn in a pub's grounds singing my head off (with a certain amount of friendly competition for who could find the best harmony line.) Great stuff.
Oh yes, in the instrument sales tent there was a chap selling simple system wooden flutes, which are just gorgeous. And Gill's just bought me one for an early birthday present. I am chuffed stupid, it's been about 25 years since I had a flute (a metal boehm system job, very different from this thing, which has the same fingering as a penny whistle.) Time to start seriously practicing.
Oh yes, and I need to get a case made and find some cleaning gear.
