Breabach....


My Easter break has started really brill. My darling Hubby treated us to tickets to see Breabach at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury for last night. This is a really lovely new theatre and we are great believers in using what you've got or loose it.... Plus, we love live entertainment. I have to say Breabach certainly didn't let us down. They were 5 very talented musicians who obviously really enjoyed what they were doing. They played various bagpipes, whistles, guitars, a violin, a large double bass [in fact considerably larger than the little Scottish man playing it], a bouzouki and also sang and danced. What talent. :-) :-) :-)
We met and chatted to the group members in the interval whilst buying a signed copy of their new album...'the desperate battle of the birds'....and they made us all feel very special. They had, fairly recently, been at a local school in Shrewsbury for a week's workshop with the children so there were a few of the school's pupils in the audience too who obviously loved the group members.
There were lots of tapping feet and clapping and all in all I am certain everyone went home having had a wonderful evening....I know I did. If you get the chance to see them it is well worth getting yourself tickets....they come highly recommended.
