The Piano Men Evening

The Piano Men   -   Musical Soiree at Pallinsburn House


A Musical Soiree was held at Pallinsburn House on 14th September, by kind permission of Mr. and Mrs. George Farr.   This provided jolly entertainment for a packed audience.   The Piano Men – local accomplished musicians, David Wood and Paul McDermott, and vocalist Julia Wailes-Fairbairn, performed a programme of 20th Century Music from 1910 Ragtime to more contemporary popular music up to the turn of the century.   Julia was joined for many of her songs by the guests.   During the supper interval for the musicians, Andrew Joicey made sure that the music did not stop, having taken Paul’s place at the piano.

The evening had got off to a good start with the guests bringing delicious dishes of home-prepared food, and they had been invited to compete in a best-dressed table competition.   As time moved on, many of the guests got up to dance, and the evening finished with numerous expressions of how much they had all enjoyed it, and....... when is the next one? 

The proceeds of the evening, which was organised by the North Northumberland Hunt Supporters Club, are to be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support and the North Northumberland College Valley Hunt.
