The Saddlers Centre is our local shopping destination. They have a public piano. Last month I was honoured to be asked to play the public piano at its post-lockdown re-launch, and when Becki the lovely person who manages the centre asked me if I did any Christmas music.
Evidently, the answer is “yes”… and so we gathered last Saturday to Deck the Mall. You can see a video excerpt from our performance on the Saddlers Centre Facebook page here: https://fb.watch/hrm7j2i9_X/
We followed up with a brief sing at The Table on Lower Hall Lane at their craft fair day, and had a wonderful coffee to finish off the afternoon.
I love carolling in the midst of the community. It’s where these songs really belong, bringing life and joy to those who wander past, even if they are wondering what on earth is with the hat!
