17th August 2015
Hi everybody. I’m sorry to say Larry won’t be able to join us for Worcester, IOM, Hardwick, Edinburgh, Bingley and Festival No. 6. But fear not—we’ll be in safe hands, as band buddy and former member Adrian Oxaal will be stepping in to cover for him.
(Unfortunately Adrian can’t make the Bingley show. But rest assured we will be finding a suitable stand in.)
