2012 Gigs

2012 Gig Season

Wow, what a fantastic gig season we had!!!  Lots of lovely gigs, lots of Carnivals, and lots of fun!  Highlights were Trevithick Day, which is one of our most popular, Perranporth Carnival (always lots of fun there!), St Ives Music Festival, Truro Carnival, and Truro City of Lights!  We also enjoyed serenading late night shoppers in Truro during the lead up to Christmas.
Another good event was our Busk for Ben - those of you that know us will know that our previous leader Ben now studies at Cardiff University.  Ben and a friend decided to take part in a charity event called "Hitch", and were looking for sponsorship for the event - they had to hitch from Cardiff to Croatia in order to raise funds for the charity "Hitch"!!  We set up outside Truro Cathedral one blustery afternoon, and entertained the shoppers for a couple of 30min sets, and managed to raise in excess of £70 for Ben!!  Great fun, and we intend to build on our busking career as soon as we can!
