Favourite time signature? It's a toss up between 5/4 and 6/8. One's a bit more exotic, the other is just fun.

The Finest Kind concert on March 10 will definitely be wonderful, and I was just in the midst of composing a reminder to you about the concert by Neville and Gail when lo! your notice appeared. Good work. The show is great, this morning, as usual, and the concertina band was fabulous.

Thanks Dale, yes I think Neville and Gail's concert sounds very interesting too. Will give them a mention in a sec.

The concertina band is pretty awesome. Pity the field recording is a bit distant. Sure would like to hear a modern concertina band recorded on good quality equipment!
