New Ceilidh Club for Mersea

Greg and John have started a new ceilidh club on Mersea Island. Called (with some inaccuracy) the "First Friday Ceilidh Club", it will be launching with the Regatta Ceilidh Band providing the foot-stompin' music, on Friday 8th June at the MICA, 8 pm. See poster below for full details and diary dates for the rest of the year. Please tell all your friends, and bring along everyone you know!  Suitable for anyone between the ages of 8 and 108, it will be huge fun, as any of you who've been to the annual Regatta Christmas Ceilidhs will know.

The club has its own Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/MerseaFirstFridayCeilidhClub . If you're on Facebook please nip over and 'like' it to show your support.

Mersea Island Food, Drink & Leisure Festival 2012

All Coast Inn Session musicians are invited to play in the Acoustic Tent at the Mersea Island Food, Drink & Leisure Festival on 2nd and 3rd June

Sponsored by Black Diamond Accordions, the Acoustic Tent will offer two day-long programmes of widely varied acoustic music on the lower lawn at Mersea Vineyard.

At 2.30 pm each day, we'll be attempting to re-create a 'Typical Thursday Night at the Coast Inn' for half an hour, so please come along with your instrument/s - and your family and friends - and join in the fun.

Admission and parking are completely free and the festival offers two fantastic days out for all the family.
