Nori’s Café at 3 Church Street, Leominster is a great little venue for live acoustic music. It’s becoming a semi-regular gig for me – I usually play a short solo set, then accompany other performers on dobro and guitar. Apart from several other projects, Nori has a little scratch band called The Ambling Band, and last summer we provided the music for an eccentric civic procession through Leominster.
In a revived local tradition, the bread, fish and ale at various establishments were tasted by appointees of the town council, and very loudly proclaimed of good quality by the town crier. There isn’t a fishmongers in Leominster any more, so the fish taster had to make do with some battered cod from the fish and chip shop, whilst being serenaded by accordion, banjo, guitar and tambourine. Like what they did in olden days. Anyway, I’ll be back at Nori’s on the evening of 30th November 2016.
