Summer Miscellany at the Coastguard


 I enjoyed putting together a programme to mark Sea Sunday at my local arts centre. My idea was to present a daytime event-an hour long mix of music and words on a theme, along the lines of   Sunday Miscellany but with more music than words. I wanted enough variety to make it interesting for the audience but not too many soloists so that all performers got a good run. It all came together on Sunday. The sun shone and the fleet of  sailing boats in the regatta making their way from Dunmore to Tramore could be glimpsed through the windows .  It wasn't all plain sailing though.  We weathered the storms of an  erratic piano pedal and some  extraneous percussion. It was lovely to see so many friends and fellow musicians in the audience  Many thanks to my wonderful guests pianist Marian Ingoldsby, soprano Roisin O Grady and writer John Hannigan.  The hat collection in aid of RNLI came to €180. Thank you all who came along.
