Tall Ships - Day One.









Last night I went down to catch the Nick Pride Trio who came over very well - if not all jazz
Also along by the Lifeboat Station I came across some "fringe" activity. An organisation called "Tall Ship" (singular) has two sheds in which they are building a tall ship. Not mentioned in the main programme they are putting on various bands over the four days. I heard a couple of tunes from a band called Dennis. A full on sound with obvious links to the Durham Brass Band tradition
