Warren and I are organising this however...
which will be raising equally large sums for Cancer Research UK. Sophie and Andrea will be helping to organise this and we hope to rope in others for the ride itself.
We hope to get out busking at some point over the summer though!

When we first floated the idea of doing a Christmas gig, we'd just arrived back from our Land's end to John O'groats adventure. The sun was still shining and it seemed such a long way off.
Now it's just two weeks away and I'm almost bursting with excitement!!
Thanks to Jonny we now have an online ticketing service here

There was an inspiring talk by Tony Selman and a presentation on recent developments by the research team.
We got up and told our story, before playing a couple of songs. Thanks to @kaz_staff for the pic, and the support she brought whilst we were on the road. Good to finally meet you.

Warren's article has now been published in the independent sister paper the "I", and is available as a text only story here
I'll try and scan it in so you can see it in all it's technicolour glory.
We are off to meet the guys at cancer research on thursday to talk to potential volunteers and fundraisers. Let's hope we inspire some more stupid pub ideas to become a reality.

3 days before the end of our adventure we pulled into invershin. Far and away the easiest gig to organise. The youth hostel had a roof based incident that didn't allow for our stay, so we rang the inversion hotel. Warren asked Cheryl if there was anywhere she could suggest locally to play. There was. The hotel itself.
From the warm welcome, the music playing in the bar, the suprising number of extremely talented musicians who turned up to play, this turned out to be a very special night for us all.
This is also the pub Shaun should have picked to escape the oncoming zombie hordes. (rifles, bear traps and superior food, drinks and snacks... Plus clear views from the top of the hill.)
Highlights for me me included...
A stonking version of fishermens blues (and copperhead road)
Beautiful violin playing
Teenage kicks...And psychokiller... Folk style
Snacks at midnight...
Sitting in the bar after the customers had gone home and singing a king of the road/I kissed a girl mash-up.
Being persuaded to stay up until 02:30am when most night we were in bed by 22:00
Thank you for a lovely eve Cheryl and Angus of the invershin hotel.
