We are performing at The Silvester Horne Institute in Church Stretton on 26th May to help raise funds for the Stretton Wetlands. Bore hole surveys in 1961 indicated a layer of peat between 6 to 12 feet thick, indicating the area has been natural wetland for many centuries. Recents surveys have found rare insects, as well as sightings of otter and kingfisher, securing Wildlife status for the site.

The Strettons Area Community Wildlife Group is fundraising to encourage community awareness of the area, fund a boardwalk to improve access and enhance several small pools on the site. Tickets are available from John Thomas Florist, 3 Sandford Ave, Church Stretton, Shropshire. Tel: 01694 722194 or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/whalebone. Would be great to see you there!

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 :)
