Concertina group based in Maidstone, Kent, UK
Kettle Bridge Concertinas performed at the Hammond Micro Car Collection Open Day. This is a special event where small car enthusiasts (it is the cars that are small, not the enthusiasts!) get a chance to see a wide variety of micro vehicles.
Although the weather was not kind, there were plenty of visitors and we did a good job of entertaining them while they sheltered from the rain in the refreshment barn.
In all, we played three sessions of popular tunes which seemed to go down very well. For some reason, though, the repertoire did not include Iím Forever Blowing Bubble Cars.
The webmaster has written a report of the event and provided some pictures of the cars on show. Click here to read more.
We have been booked to appear at a couple of events over the summer.
First up is an appearance at the Hammond Collection Open Day at the end of July. The collection is a small museum dedicated to microcars and is not usually open to the general public so this is a great opportunity for all you petrol heads to see some rare cars.
This is followed by an invitation back to the annual School Gambia barbecue. Click here to see what happened at last yearís event.
