Introducing myself

Post by Powelly »

Afternoon all,

thought I'd just make a quick post to introduce myself and say 'Hi'.

I'm a Drummer by trade, based in Sheffield, where I offer Online Drum sessions from my studio.
But enough abot me :tongue:, any other northerners or online session players on the forum?

Cheers,

Hmm, I was at the Fat Cat in Sheffield the other week - and a couple of others I forget the names of. Good beer. It was full of Morris dancers. The pub, not the beer. That would be weird. The trams were greatly appreciated after a light ale or two. :D

I have no idea what I'm doing.

If I had my way I'd drown all Morris dancers, but not in beer, that'd be a waste! :) Not that I want to come across as a psycopath in my first thread! :D

I'm a big fan of the fat cat, can be pricey tho. Anyone see any of the tramlines shows lsat weekend?

Cleethorpes - that's a bit further north than Sheffield. And my recent ancestry traces from Scotland & the Faroe Islands.

I can cope with cold weather ;)

Allow me to introduce myself, a moderator here and a former Morris Dancer (and not the only one here on the forums).

And only slightly teasing too. Morris Dancing could easily be classed as a martial art, those staves have crushed many a knuckle. As a drummer you really need to keep the use of your hands ;)

PS, welcome to the SOS forums :lol:

Oh come on! It's high time the English became cool about one of their national forms of dance. Done well, it is great to watch, even better to participate in, and Cotswold morris tunes in particular are the hidden gems of our musical culture.

PS hi Powelly!

We should stop apologising for our culture. Is it really any sillier than a Maori Haka?
