    Manitoba Hal is coming to our group tomorrow night to run a workshop, great looking forward to it. Will give you an update on how good it was later in the week if you like?

    We had Hal on the 25th.
    Great workshop, everyone seemed to get something from it. (We are mixed abilities, pickers to plunkers, PLUNKERS not plonkers!)
    The show afterwards. Blew our socks off. Beings so close to be able to see his playing was the icing on the cake. Hal was accoustic for us so no pedalboard.
    Hal took great care to remember peoples names and joked with everyone. Made everyone feel really special.
    I think Hal hopes that he will be able to do the same again in 2015, if he does I’m sure we will be first in line to rebook him.
    Videos of the after workshop performance can be found on this page:
