Fiveways Folk and more audience than musicians at the jam Views: 1596

WB were totally acoustic on Wednesday at our return visit to the Fiveways Folk club in Bournemouth. I had traveled to that fair city with a car full of excited teenage girls who were off to the BIC to see 'McBusted' a teenybopper hybrid of two, equally nauseating boy bands, still good timing that it was on the same night and in the same city saving me an extra drive! Having deposited them at the BIC I found the Fiveways pub and settled in for an evening of entertainment before we were on.

Sunday afternoon was the monthly jam at Aucklandia in Southsea, how quickly it comes around! There were lovely new faces to play and many familiar faces.

Overall the quality of sound was pretty damn fab for the whole afternoon everyone having more or less got a good idea what was going on most of the time, no mean feat at a jam! The most gratifying thing about this jam really was the rather large amount of audience members, at most jams the number of musicians outnumbers the  people there to listen but today, the musos were in the minority. Very pleasing.
