Last night we played at Rhewl Community Hall, to raise some money for the Hall itself. 

The hall has been built in recent years and is proving to be a real bonus for the local community. It has it's own bar, kitchen, other amenities and bags of parking space for visitors. 

Like last week, we in the band were concerned that the space may be echo-ey, but again, like last week, once it had filled up with bodies it sounded great.

The show opened with Alan Thomson and his sister Linda Griffith who did a selection very tasty songs, some written by Alan and other covers. Great stuff.

Then TDH went on and did a set which attempted a variety of songs and styles. Ranging from rock, blues, country, to ballads and some novelty songs (such as Oliver and Hardy classics)! All good fun.

A break, and then we repeated the format of the first half. We ended with an encore, in which Alan and Linda, plus some audience members, joined us on stage. As, they say,..... variety is...

Last weekend we had a little musical trip out to Clawdd-newydd.

Accompanied by Chris Birchall and Penne Neale.

Chris went on first and did an amazing job of warming up the audience from a standing start - not very easy when all the audience had just had a meal. 

Then Penne produced her usual high quality performances which retained and built the atmosphere.

By which time all the audience were really up for it, so it made our task much easier, and we really enjoyed ourselves. 

The sound of the room (when we were setting up earlier) was quite echo-ey, so we were a bit concerned, but by the time the room was full of bodies, the sound was fine. Which always makes us, the boys in the band, comfortable. 

Here's John Bass, holding us all together as usual!

Our concert at Llanfair DC was very interesting. It was held at the Community centre and was intended to raise money for the Nightingale Hospice. 

The two other acts on the bill were both excellently received by an enthusiastic audience, so the whole night went well. 

Rose Hislop who organised the event tells me today that they raised over a £1000 pounds, which is a brilliant result. So, well done everyone concerned including the audience itself.

It was a somewhat sad night for us in the TDH band as it was the last time Raphael will be playing with us. He's a marvellous musician who has contributed greatly to the band and he will be missed. In recent months he has been doing more individual gigs (he's a fine guitarist and singer, as well as a great harmonica player) and he wants to expand on that approach to his own musical career. Naturally we wish him well in this venture, and hope that we will bump into him occasionally at the odd gig. (His website, f...

We've had quite a few engaging gigs recently from farm shows to private parties for retiring gentlemen. 

And this coming Saturday we have an interesting concert at Llanfair, which is a charity concert for the Nightingale Hospice. (see the events page). 

With luck we may see you there. 

After that we have a breather for a few weeks during which we are looking at some new songs, (and possibly working out a tap-dancing routine with Tom as Fred and John as Ginger?).

Here's a pic of Richard with one of his guitars on the way to one of our gigs.

We're doing a concert over at Llanfair DC Community Hall, alongside a singer known as 'a true voice of Wales'. He is Davi Chris, and has a wonderful tenor voice, and a range of material crossing over into classical. We're really looking forward to hearing him. 

Another chap on the concert list is Brian 'Liquorice' Locking, who, as you know, is a bass player and harmonica player who worked with the Shadows.

I thought you might like to see the poster (produced by the organisers (below)), just for fun.

We (TDH) will be playing some of our old songs, - blues, country, folk, - alongside some newer ones. With luck we will see you there?
