The Andover Museum Loft Singers gave their first formal concert at the Lights in Andover. They had two conductors - Paul Sartin and Sarah Morgan.
"The Loft Singers specialise in close-harmony singing, and their concert contained many songs about the seasons, and many which had local connections. They based their programme on the work of traditional collectors of English songs who did their research about a hundred years ago."
"The Loft Singers provided half of the evening's entertainment - the other half coming from Belshazzar's Feast, namely Paul Sartin on the oboe and violin, with Paul Nicholson on the accordion. They are nearing the end of a tour of England, and were off to Bedford the next day and Arundel the day after. They spark well off each other, and underneath the bluster are clearly accomplished musicians."
"There was a good response to this concert, with the Lights being 75% full. I hope this will encourage them to do another concert. It was very professional and good-humoured, as well as being educational. I learned a lot about the history of English folk songs."
