The Blyth Power Ashes 2014

What The Ashes Did Next

Hello Everyone

Just to remind you all that The Ashes this year take place on 22nd -25th August, and promises to be the most fabulous ever. The usual galaxy of stars, cricket action, and quaint pastoral pursuits will be supplemented this year by all manner of subversive activities, including an attempt by The Dear Leader to teach young people to play music, something that is frowned upon in a day and age in which art is something that was done by sacred cows thirty years ago, and has been replaced in the Nation’s hearts by a culture of ‘heritage’
Well we hate ‘heritage’. We rather embrace heresy, which is why when we dig up the bones of an old Blyth Power recording for ‘Ashes Monday’, we will do it with the style and panache of a bunch of tomb raiders rather than whiskered professors dusting off the sacred scrolls. This year it is ‘A Little Touch of Harry in the Night’, and most of it will be shoved back into the crypt after this one performance so do yourself a favour…
No, it’s not ‘Ant Music’, but it’s pretty much everything else. See you at the Plough for the best long weekend of the summer!

Monday sees the return of the great Blyth Power fete, so anyone wanting to do their own stall please please do!

On Saturday and Sunday mornings 9-11am Comrade Sir Henry will be running workshops ranging from Juggling to Comedy Songwriting to Ceilidh and Barndancing in the second marquee. Everyone welcome.

Alongside these workshops, Joseph will be organising music sessions for children also in the second marquee. Any other musicians who would like to get involved please do come and help out.
