Blackwell's Cafe
Broad Street

Street performance
New Road

At Blackwell's Cafe, it is very inspiring, and keeps the audience concentrated.
On the street, it is still interesting but of course the sound disappears because of other sounds such as cars, buses, and emergency signals. (Joanna Oikonomakou)

The Pig's Ear

01491 829 314
Harmonica / Accordion I'm a 42 year old distribution manager but I've been playing music for the last 5 years. Ever since we needed a band for the end-of-year celebration at our local Baptist's Church, some of us regular church musicians took up a few unusual instruments like harmonica and accordion and formed a band. We're called 'The Pig's Ear and we're available for all community occasions (Roger Farnell)
