Crosthwaite Church, Keswick Thursday April 18th 2013

This gig was part of a series, organised by [and here I quote from the programme notes] "a small committee entitled Music at Crosthwaite which came into existence in  1998 with the aim of providing good quality classical music for the benefit of residents and visitors within the historic centre for Christian worship at Crosthwaite Church, Keswick."

It was a horribly wet night, which probably put some people off coming out at all, so the audience was somewhat smaller than the one at Cockermouth the previous week, but I'd like to think that those who did brave the storm felt their trip was worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed playing anyway, in such a lovely old church.
