Greetings

This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Rhubarb Wine - Third Bottle (B5), 21st July 2012

Think of two musical genres that are unlikely to be found together, and you may well come up with 'Classical' and 'Hip Hop'. Yet this is what I was involved with today. WYSO took a string sextet and wind quintet to the Leeds On the Edge festival where we played in a gritty (though domed) warehouse loading bay, alternating our sets with a scratch DJ and three body poppers. The latter were excellent - as someone who is massively uncoordinated I am always impressed by dancers.

At the end of the concert, we all came together in a fusion piece which, unexpectedly, worked rather well. And from the audience we received whistles and applause rather than baffled looks.

Once at home Claire and I had a much needed bottle of Rhubarb wine, sat in our jungle of a garden, coming down from the experience.
