Just spent an enjoyable evening at Banbury Folk Club in the company of Haddo a duo who live on their 60 ft narrowboat Midama in Wygrams Turn Marina.
They are Will Pound, a virtuoso harmonica player and melodianist, alongside his wife Nicki, who plays violin and viola. They have a debut album available now. We appear fortunate to have them in the area at the moment. Tomorrow they are in Newcastle! (It must be half term in Warwickshire!)They were supported this evening by the singer/songwriter Pete Joshua with his sublime guitar accompaniments.
I look forward to meeting them on the cut. They appear to be very busy people. Nicki teaches! I hope that they make time to do more than move their boat to Cropredy Marina when it is completed in the Sunmmer. Their tunes need to get about too.
- The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.
