CUMBERLAND (WE ARE TENNESSEE) ON ITUNES
Brian and Cathryn have released Cumbria (We Are Tennessee) on Itunes. You can download it for 79p from
The song, as you probably already know if you've seen the video on youtube at
is about the severe floods that occurred in May this year when
several rivers including the Cumberland, Loosahatchie, Duck, Harpeth and Red River burst their banks and flooded large areas of Kentucky , Tennessee, Virginia, and Ohio.
BRIAN AND SCRATCH MUSIC NIGHTS
Many of you may already have been to the Red Lion in Shepperton as Brian and Cathryn ended a tour at a nearby school a few years ago, and then everyone adjourned to the Red Lion for a post gig tipple. The pub closed last year but has recently re-opened under new management. Brian Willoughby and a friend of his, a guitarist called Scratch from New Zealand, are running music nights every Monday there. The evenings kick off at around eight o'clock, with Brian and Scratch playing a set, usually joined by guest musicians such as Mark Pickup on saxophone, then the floor is open to any musicians in the audience. If you have a talent, come along. If, like me, you don't have a talent but enjoy listening to good music, come along as well.
