New subject

If you want to raise a new topic, post your comment here — just click first on Comments below, then type in 'Post a comment' (top right of the next window). Can you choose a title for your post, please? Sometimes it's hard to work out what a comment is about and what the subject is. A new heading will soon be set up, allowing others to see and add their own comments.We try to keep posts civilized. And any posts that become too provocative, insulting, threatening or    otherwise unpleasant will be deleted. 

Please note that the moderator may exercise editorial control, to limit posts to subjects likely to be of interest to the majority of people, so not every topic will be posted (there's always the 'Watercooler' topic for miscellaneous issues/observations/chit-chat), and please use an existing thread to debate issues.

Tom Langham's Hot Fingers - Sunday 2nd February at 7.30 - Studland Village Hall

Tom Langham's Hot Fingers - Sunday 2nd February at 7.30 - Studland Village Hall
Back by huge popular demand, Hot Fingers welcome you to an eclectic mix of vintage acoustic string music. On this journey they visit the hot jazz of 1920's New York and sophisticated 1930's Swing, including references to the king of gypsy swing, Django Reinhardt. This is mixed with vocals of song-writing greats such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, as well as novelty features from the likes of Cliff 'Ukulele Ike' Edwards.

Tom 'Spats' Langham has crooned his way around the world with bands such as the 'Pasadena Roof Orchestra' and has several times sold out venues on the Artsreach circuit.

Although just a trio, the band can be seen removing three guitars, a double bass, a sousaphone, a banjo, a mandolin, two ukuleles, a clarinet, a tuba, and a pair of castanets from the band van. Expect an evening of fabulous entertainment!

Book soon - based on their last visit to Studland in 2008 demand for tickets is bound to be high.
