During the summer I was speaking to a chap in Loughborough who’s son plays at weddings. He plays Sitar, tabla and keyboards. His son was looking for a sax player to join him.  We have been rehearsing for the past couple of months and just before Christmas, we recorded some videos to help promote the band.

if you search for Folk foundasian sax trio on YouTube you can view the first two videos that have been mixed.

i had never met the percussionist before the session, but it really added another dimension to the tunes. It was a good afternoon of music making.

we are playing at our first wedding fair on the 18th January in Leicester if you would like to see us live.

happy new year

Well tomorrow Uppingham Community College School band and Sax group are playing at Burghley House for the Queens garden party.  We are the only state school represented.  The sax group is planning to play ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’.  Lets hope the weather stays fine.  I wonder what Prince Philip will think to the choice of tunes?  I will let you know how we get on.

regards
