Thursday Night is Music Night

.... at Nelly's. That is when all the lads come round and hang about the garage making music. They started about a year ago. Most of them are near-beginners which is to say they were in their 30s and 40s when they got into it. Bert plays the whistle well, the clarinet less well. Ian plays guitar & mandolin, Glen and Ploppy play banjo. Then there is Joe. He is good - used to play the saxophone in a showband when he was a stripling, then dropped music for years. He got interested again when he heard about Bert's amateur night. Joe can play anything and he tutors any of them that want it.
