Now, who lives in a house like this?
Have you heard of Stoney Ridge?
Should I have?
Is it famous?
The answer to the leading question is Lord and Lady National Trust of Uppark.
To the other three, your corresponding rhetorical answers could reasonably be ...
“Is that a geological feature?”
“Where is it?"
Allow me to enlighten the reader …
The Stoney Ridge Band comprises Mick and Marion Tipper (guitar and bass), Barry Gordon (banjo) and their fiddlin’ accomplice, Richard.
We are regularly privileged to enjoy Mick and Marion’s company and music at the City Folk Club.
Occasionally, all too infrequently, we see/hear Barry.
Last week, (oh, joy!) Richard came along.
All are accomplished and talented musicians, as well as being extraordinarily delightful people.
One has to ask, “What are they doing coming all the way from Portsmouth to be in such dubious company as the City Folk Club?”
“Have they nothing better to do on a Friday evening?!”
While it is not the function of this blog to promote commercial events, on this occasion, I give myself permission to celebrate the musical enterprise of CFC’s deservedly popular participants.
The Stoney Ridge Band will be performing for a barn dance at Uppark House, (pictured above,) on Saturday 10th July, 7.00 – 11.00pm.
Tickets in advance are £15.00 (to include supper) from Uppark House.
Telephone: 01730 825857.
Website: Uppark House and Garden. You have to navigate through 'events' on the menu, and I doubt you’ll be able to book on-line.
Shall we all go?
