We played a Whalebone House Concert in the most impressive Manshed we've ever seen last night with customised bunting! Thank you to Karen and John who invited us to play at their beautiful home and looked after us so wonderfully!

Hey, the sun is shining, it's starting to feel like we've turned a corner in the seasons with the lighter nights and the hedgerows beginning to turn green again. We have a new video for you. 'Anglicana' is the first track off our latest album Mirabilia. The tune acquired it's name because it started out as being quite 'Americana', with banjos and stomp boxes initially, but then we are English, so when we started recording and arranging the tune in the studio, it returned to the Shire - which is one of the many wonderful things about music. It changes, adapts, absorbs and often surprises. Editing this video we filmed last August has been lovely, with all the sunshine and bright colours of the beautiful delphinium fields of Shropshire Petals, we hope you enjoy it.
So why the Bridgnorth Musicians Hub? The idea formed after chatting to several young musicians, all of who were looking for other people to play with. I (this is Steve writing) grew up in a city with several large music shops, each of which had a noticeboard dedicated to finding band members or advertising yourself. That option isn't available in Bridgnorth, so we've created a virtual noticeboard! And why Bridgnorth? Why not Shropshire, the UK, the Universe? Well, if you're a young musician without transport, even getting to Alveley or Much Wenlock to rehearse on an evening is pretty well impossible unless you have very understanding parents who can ferry you around, given the pretty much non-existant public transport service after 6pm. We reckon Bridgnorth is full of brilliant creative musicians anyway, so our aim is to help them connect and produce fantastic music! Here is the Facebook Group so you can join, chat, interact and get to know one another :)
