SONS Records - This Is Seb Clarke - Rock 'n' Roll Alamo Pt. 8

Finally, after an absence for a whole 10 years, SONS Records is again releasing records (all recorded at SONS Studios), staging showcases, and even launching it’s own streaming service!  So, just to get the ball rolling, please take a listen to this early pre-master of Rock ’n’ Roll Alamo Pt 8 by This is Seb Clarke. The recording still needs a final mix and master, but was so apt for Christmas that we thought it’d be a bit of fun to put it out there right now! 

This song will feature on a new album by This is Seb Clarke to be released late in 2020.  We have big plans for 2020 - Hope you like the Sign!

Charlotte and Nick, Boylestone, Derbyshire

Charlotte and Nick
I love it when The Moody Food Ceili Band get to play at unusual wedding venues. Today we played for Charlotte and Nick's wedding on a farm near Boylestone in Derbyshire. There was a wonderful festival vibe with it's marquee and theme of 'sparkle' - even the hens joined in!

In all the years that we have played ceilidhs there was something unique about this one. But you'll have to search the blog to find out... ;-)
