♫ Now that really is regrettable.  For five years Peppery Productions have been bringing pleasure and a little bit of life (not too much mind you, this is Suffolk) to near the coast but Sunday afternoon will be their last gig at the Easton Farm Park shed.  Topping are Slovenian band Terrafolk supported by Sargasso Trio.

Watching the teds

Impressively Easton Pre-School has been running since 1974.  This afternoonAlways nice to get your teddy back. they had a barbeque followed by a Teddy Jump off the church tower.  As usual at ted jumps the teddies were extremely brave but also as usual displayed a certain bloody mindedness, willfully getting stuck in all sorts of places and one even naughtily moving the big hand on the church clock.  Though this pink ted (well monkey actually) hanging on to the gutter was funny it wasn't funny to the little girl who owned him.  Fortunately a resourceful bloke with a big stick solved the problem and getting your teddy back is always nice.

Man with big stick

A giant of English traditional music Eliza Carthy will be at Easton Farm Park this Friday.  It'll be a quartet with drums and bass so don't let your musical prejudices get in the way, she kicks botty.

Natty Bo cuts a caper♫ There were enough musicians last night in the Easton Shed to field two football teams, indeed Fiona nearly ran out of bottled water for them.  Goldmaster Allstars had more guitarists and wittily encored with the theme from Get Carter (we found it irritatingly familiar and had to ask to put a name to it).  Ska Cubano were Cuban(ish), more show biz and we almost fell in love with Megumi Mesaku doubling alto and bari but felt we must remain true to Miss Olga.  Lots of lovely woofy electric double bass from both bands and again a thoroughly good night but like Kasaï Masaï  there could have been a few more of you in the audience.

A good crowd for Ska Cubano

MistletoeThe Easton Farm Park Farmers' Markets are usually held on the fourth Saturday of each month but are earlier in December because of Christmas.  When we arrived  around midday Saturday things were starting to pack up (well Suffolk Smokehouse had sold out of  chicken) and we'd missed both the brass band and Daddy C ... but the children were still enjoying the rides and the adventure playground, and the staff were getting pretty involved too.

The Easton White Horse has got one of those attractive you run it! signs just like the Stradbroke White Hart... does seem to show a certain desperation.

Dancers by the third number

Singer/djembe (a sort of drum) and bass guitarist♫ At Easton Farm Park last night Kasaï Masaï had people up dancing by the third number and  just about everybody on their feet by the fifth.  Delightful tumbling, intricate guitar swimming in  echo, offhanded bass which you don't quite know where's it going next, a good hearted stage act and knowing use of repetition to build tension make KM compulsively danceable.  Fiona said They're really nice blokes and earlier in the day they'd given African drumming and dancing lessons to local youngsters.  The Shed could have used a bit more audience but whose fault is that?  YOURS!  Get on the mailing list at Peppery.

... and this was during just the first set!

The Ukelele Orchestra of Great BritainHaving dismissed the Ukes as good but own up, it's really only one joke... no, we were wrong; they were excellent at Easton farm park.  Very funny and we adored their version of Shaft and Hester singing Teenage Dirtbag is genuinely moving. ♫
