I mentioned the Sunday Sessions in passing conversation with a young couple in Allans Music. They thought it was a good idea and out of the blue donated the deposit for a layby on the congas I’d been looking at acquiring by hook or by crook. I am continually overwhelmed by people’s generosity!
Thanks to all!
