The South Benfleet Folk Orchestra

Lovely playing with The South Benfleet Folk Orchestra last night at Chalkwell Hall, accompanying the beautiful melancholy Estuary folk pop songs of @dougcheese (Imagine if Nick Drake was in The Fire Engines and they were all involved in the Astral Weeks sessions.) – with @janfrancheeseman on bass and Ian Preece/Third Light Home on ambient soundscape improvisation… and me on one/two string noodling mandola. (Ta to Doug for the pic.) Supporting the great voices and music of @abiwade and @alexandercarsonmusic.

For soundscapist Ian Preece’s recollections of the night, go to… his review on Caught By The River.
