Aldeburgh

Some house sales in Framlingham, Earl Soham (including what was Thorolds the corner shop), Woodbridge, Saxmundham and Aldeburgh.

Very flatteringly Aldeburgh Music is following us on Twitter ... perhaps it was us being nice about Musicircus?

♫ In Aldeburgh yesterday we got see the Broadside Boys for the first time and though they weren't dressed Suffolk their anthem Suffolk Punch was suitably and rousingly patriotic.  They were part of the Aldeburgh Festival's Musicircus which is maybe a 100 bands of absolutely all flavours playing close by each other along the front and it is absolutely all flavours; school choirs, string quartets, ukes, a Hendrix wannabe, a folk quartet with the melody taken by children's tinkle bells, three vibraphones and a drummer playing latin-american ... absolutely everything and it was wonderful.

Stompin' Dave Allen at the Aldeburgh Pump House♫ At the Maverick concert in Aldeburgh last Friday solo Morgan O'Kane had become a four piece with spoons, a fluegelhorn and a suitcase kick drum (just l♥ve those suitcase drums) plus for support the bafflingly wonderful Stompin' Dave Allen.  One of Maverick's delights is being introduced to performers you probably wouldn't catch a bus to see and then are a revelation.  This Friday it's Madison Violet who nominally are a pretty girl duo but who knows? they may have transmogrified into a 22 piece marching band ...

Path is Aldeburgh's promenade.  Early last century it also seemed to be known as Craig Path and startling to see how the height of the beach has changed ... but the there has been a hundred years for the sea to work on it.

At last night's Suffolk Coastal community awards the Framlingham Flyers beat out Felixstowe hockey club and Woodbridge rugby club for Club of the Year and Leiston police are appealing again about a camera found in Aldeburgh and August containing over a 1,000 family photos including a graduation.

Suffolk SerenadeThe programme for tonight's Suffolk Serenade in Aldeburgh parish church by the Suffolk Singers not only includes Rutter and Grainger but also Billy Joel ... will the Phoenix Singers be retaliating with highlights from Grease or perhaps Mamma Mia!?  Mmmm.

 

148 years ago today Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was registered as the first woman doctor in Britain and later as mayor of Aldeburgh she was also the first female mayor and magistrate ... phew!

original and newPresumably it's the national co-op who produce their own brand washing up liquid but it is a little bit Suffolk to think something can be original and new at the same time.

Leiston police station holds an engraved man's watch that was found on Aldeburgh beach August last year.  They suspect the watch may be of sentimental value and perhaps the loser is a visitor who has returned to the Suffolk coast this summer?

We paid some 12,000 for our first house, it sold in May for 230,000 ... in the meantime recent house sales near the coast imply Aldeburgh's off the boil.

♫ We didn't bother to see Police Dog Hogan at their first Maverick (2010?) because the name sounded like just a person, bit of a mistake because they're brilliant.  Larkin Poe appear to be two sisters but in fact are a five piece, as always they can sing and that's pretty sneaky steel guitar from that girlie.  Maverick host them this Saturday at the Aldeburgh Pumphouse.

10:55am  What's that Skip?  You met someone who grew up inWhat's that Skip? Aldeburgh and didn't like Benjy because he stopped the ice cream van ringing its chimes?  Probably graceless to mention it in Benjy's centenary year Skip.
