The sun is shining and the birds are singing, there is a bit of blue sky visible and we even have the windows open slightly! Could it be that spring has really arrived? Hope so!
It's still a bit on the cool side for playing outdoor gigs, but don't let that put you off from seeing FiddleBop live (but indoors). In just three days time (Saturday 26 April, actually) we are returning to the wonderful Norman Knight pub in Whichford, Warwicks. Tim Young is mine host there, and he might even join us on his cajón (if you don't know what one of these is, then come along and find out. Oh OK, yes you could always look it up on Wikipedia. There, I've made it easier for you lazy ones...) It is always a fun night at the Knight: see you there?
There are lots more gigs listed on our website, and below. More in our home area, then we're off to the far north east (Northamptonshire, actually) on Sunday 11 May (The Walnut Tree Inn, Blisworth). Then back down to darkest southern Oxfordshire - ooo arrr, they be funny down thereabouts - for a return visit to The Nag's Head, Abingdon on Sunday 15 June (thanks, Lloyd!)
Two forthcoming FiddleBop gigs that we are all particularly excited about are Upton Jazz Festival (in Upton-Upon-Severn, near Worcester) on Saturday 28 June, and - just confirmed - Le QuecumBar ("The World's Premier Django Reinhardt Gypsy Swing Venue": they said that, not us) in South London on Sunday 3 August. Wow! It's going to be a summer to remember! We can hardly wait!

PS Sometimes you might also find a FiddleBopper or three at these jazz jams:
