Clifton Summer Serenades, Wednesday 21 July. Playlist version 2

Dear Brigstowe Village Band, Here is version 2 of the playlist for Wednesday. Our first playlist since the start of COVID. It has been ‘tweeked’ (introductions / times through etc) as a result of members availability and the rehearsal with Laurel on Friday 16th and will be ‘Tweeked ‘ again (so version 3) after Tuesday 20th rehearsal. Please let me know if you are coming and have not done so. After that it will be pretty much the playlist that we use for all our summer gigs up until the Harvest Festival at St Marys, West Kington on October 3rd. All looking good. Best wishes, Liz
