Glorystrokes @ C#

It was the Knees Up a Cecil Sharp house last night, so thethirdvoice and I went with a couple of her work colleagues and met up with some people from Cambridge there.

Glorystrokes were playing. This was now the third time I've heard them and although the base was a bit lacking at the beginning they got the sound level just right and the place wasn't too crowded like it was in Warwick.

Gordon Potts was a good choice of caller to go with them. Although I still think Martyn Harvey worked better with them at Warwick, because he had a lot more stage presence to carry it off.

Unfortunately, we couldn't stay for the last dance as we had to get the last train home, but it was a fun evening all the same and it was good to see a lot of Cambridge people we don't see very often anymore.
