Leigh Mitchell… Remember Steve Portch from Saturdays in the mid-70s, he was the manager when I worked there

Terry Scaife… Leigh, I love that girl’s outfit

Leigh Mitchell… Terry, very 80s! xx

Phil Gill….Is that Matt Buckley third from left?

Neil Cartwright….Dave Roberts fourth from left.

Blowzabella will be at St Mary In The Castle May 20th 2016 – “Blowzabella is a genuinely unique band that makes an inimitable, driving, drone-based sound played with a fabulous sense of melody, rhythmic expertise and sheer feeling. They compose their own music which is influenced by English and European traditional dance music.” more information… http://stmaryinthecastle.co.uk
