Wensum Lodge this Friday

Well the rumours have turned out to be true. Sebastiana will be joining the Straynotes in Jurnets Bar this coming Friday 22nd January. We will be on at about 8.30 in order that Paul can hot foot it to the Black Horse on Earlham Rd for another gig. This will allow the rest of us to sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the bill. I'm told it includes the excellent Horses Brawl.

The Rumour Mill

Eastern Straynotes have been booked to play a short set at Jurnet's Bar on Friday 22nd January. This much we know. But rumour has it that they are to be joined by the wonderful chanteuse and accordionist Sebastiana Mikulova (pictured) with whom they are said to be working up a few numbers especially for the occasion.

Jurnet's Bar, for those not yet in the know, is in the crypt of a 12th Century house on King Street in Norwich, now part of the Wensum Lodge adult education centre. They serve a fine, and refreshingly inexpensive, pint of Adnams along with a range of other beverages. Entry is free and there is always an eclectic mix of acoustic acts to enjoy. Music starts about 8pm as I remember.

Straynotes in New Year's Eve Triffid Scare!

The intrepid Straynotes were, once again, at the heart of the action on New Year's Eve. Andy, calm in the face of danger, continued to play as Jonathan pied piped a rampant rubber plant away from terrified diners at the Loch Fyne restaurant on St Giles Street.

Alex the waitress was the brave photographer.

"Hey, it was nothing!"
