It is with deep sadness we have to report the passing of Lilian who both worked with us and who was Ali’s mum. She has been with us from the start, working the counter when we need her to. We are obviously coping with a range of emotions (not counting the fact we are a member of staff down). Customers have so far been lovely with their comments and we thank you.
We will be closed on Saturday 19th and then the following Thursday from 11am. Please check our facebook and this website for shop details for any closures- though we will endevour to keep to normal hours.
Thanks Mum- Sleep the good Sleep.
Well we didn’t win- but we put on a good show. We had the best flowers on our side of the street I think! (most of the flowers were on the other side of the street. Congratulations to the winners!
Just a reminder to all parents of Ali’s pupils at BVS that there will be no guitar or ukulele lessons there this week due to sports day. Lessons back to normal next week.
Well done to all my pupils at Bawdswell who played so well in assembly today. Great job- we have had some absences recently and a lost book- so for some this was a challenge and I am so proud that they got up and played so well.
Aquila have some great strings out for Ukulele- They are their Educational set- which means each string is a different primary colour- Green/red/yellow/blue. But they are in the Nylgut range, so a great quality string, and look fantastic! And we have them in Store!
Some new arrivals to Red Lion Music- a great new soprano ukulele but with a concert neck- so for those wanting the higher sound but with the convenience of the bigger neck- this could be for you. Some great new beginners piano books too. Many other new items! With more to come.
Just come back from Musikmesse- the huge music trade show in Frankfurt. Whilst I was there I took photos of the Dexibell colour range. Hadn’t seen them (except in the catalogue) so took a few photos! We hold the black ones in stock- but colour ones can be ordered easily and delivered within a few days! I like the green!
Hi, sorry apparently we were off line for a while, and with our being away for our 25th wedding anniversary, and Christmas etc, I just have not posted for a while! (stop it, I can hear your Hurrahs from here!)
Today I was asked for some Bach- or maybe something more modern?? Which has posed the question of what would your more modern be? Beethoven, Mozart? Debussy, Elgar? John Williams or Prince? the lists are huge! When you have a dull moment (or want to think about something to get rid of the hiccups) what a great question to ask yourself! So many choices!
The elves are busy in the workshop getting everything ready for Christmas.
We’re very excited for the festive season this year with lots of items arriving on our shelves. Our Christmas crackers are back again, filled with mini bells and other musical trinkets so you can create your own mini orchestra. With many new items in store in time for Christmas, from musical gifts to instruments, come in and see us.
