Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

The Real Ale/Jazz Train

One of the crazier features of the North East in July is the Real Ale/Jazz Train which runs from Newcastle to Carlisle and back, powered by Diesel, Matfen Breweries' Real Ale and the Vieux Carré 4 or Fred Rowe's Railroad Stompers.
Colin Aitchison, over here from Hong Kong, played on one of the journeys and part of the proceedings were posted on YouTube.
Colin is on trumpet, Gavin Lee, clarinet, Brian Bennett, banjo and, I think, Phil Rutherford, sousaphone. 
A good time appeared to be had by all and I'm going to get me some of that Matfen Brewery Beer!
Lance.
