A Very Quiet Day at the Leinster?

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Hortense in one of her moods

It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that Hortense was in her usual mood at the Leinster last Sunday: another monster afternoon full of noise, the occasional gem leavened as it must be, by the profound musical incompetence which we all know and, for the most part, love. Another 20 musos, if you include singers in that category, fronted for a fine and noisy afternoon of ballad mangling, blues bashing and badinage. ....

You may be left wondering, just what constitutes Hortense’s usual mood (or not, as the case may be). Well, all of Hortense’s moods are usual, and she is usually in one of them. Life has not been the same since she set fire to the stage curtains of the Strangled Ferret, and come to think of it, probably wasn’t the same before then, either. I do wonder about Hortense, but then, don’t we all?

Stick to the black notes – they are cheaper…

Catchya soon I hope.  TW
