More fame (of a sort)... thanks to Jim McClure for publishing these pictures of what Gog Magog got up to at the weekend at Wallingford BunkFest.

I'm going to be on the radio! Thursday 16th June, Radio 3, "Late Junction"... should be on about 11:30pm. Verity Sharp will be playing "Geld Him Lasses" and the Purcell hornpipe from Anahata and Mary's "Floating Verses".

May I present... the Geigenwerk. Harpsichord meets hurdy-gurdy. Apparently Leonardo da Vinci came up with this idea. What on earth was he thinking?
