Hurdy gurdy, bagpipes and recorders in Old Buckenham

Deck the halls
Malcolm and Elizabeth Ecclestone came to All Saints church, Old Buckenham, on Saturday 6 December to entertain an audience of local people with a jolly entertainment of words and music. They perform as Chanter's Jigge and bring together diverse styles of music and a very wide variety of instruments.

The evening's programme was mainly of folk carols interspersed by seasonal readings and with the audience encouraged to join in the choruses whenever possible. The sound of the two players was often enhanced with pre-recorded versions of them playing on another instrument so that they end up playing duets with themselves.
Mince pies and mulled wine were available at the half time break and the evening raised further funds for toward the repairs of the church fabric.
