Music on Mason - Saturday the 19th of Nov

Lots of music on Mason St this Saturday. The folk club officially launched the Bushers Stage made by guitarist and carpenter extrordinaire Ted Smith (have a look at the plaque next time you are at Sammy's) and Ted and the Ukulele Dolls played a set each to get things going. We then had the future of music in Newport with the Newport Lakes PS singers (pictured) and children from Newport Gardens PS performing songs and pieces from this year's musical. In amongst it all the Tin Pan Cowboys got up on stage and ran through a couple of tunes. The pictures show the weather (bleak, and mild to heavy rain) but this didn't dampen our parade. The Ted Stage is fully weather proof, accomodates a full pa and foldback, so we ensured that all of Newport knew that there was mutsic on. There were plenty of proud smiles from the parents, and lots of interests from the cars driving by (and their passengers). Their expressions seemed to suggest a mood of 'Who would have thought??'. Anyway its now about 5 years since the first Music in Mason (a tradition!) - the stage is literally set for anyone who wants to get up and play. Test it our when you are out buying bagels.
