Hey For Somersetshire

IMG_2040.JPG

7Dials 4.jpegThe countryside photos are all Shropshire, because that’s my home; the dancers are my favourite Pigsty Morris, because the song’s about dancing and there’s none better; and the band is one of our Stevenage barn dance bands, because the song is sung by one of the players. (I could have done with their help for this recording.) It’s also in memory of Len Sim, far right, who was a very talented musician on fiddle, piano and wind instruments, an arranger for brass band, as well as a super secondary school class teacher.

Hey For Somersetshire is from my album, Seven Dials (see menu 7).
