This may be all you want for Christmas!

With the lack of opportunities available to play, the need for charity donations and to spread some festive cheer I created Singing Santas to enable us to play some music within the rules. I am joined by other musicians for a festive set.

Well, we got off to a great start on the Saturday before Christmas, oh, the day before the next lockdown! Well we were stopped in our tracks and we’ll be back next year!
