We decided to go with some fierce hat action in this video. This is a type of round called a ‘catch’, which is distinguished by it’s use of pauses to produce a word or phrase that isn’t thematically linked to the rest of the song – in this case “liver-pool-street-station” is made up of the… Continue reading Video: The Shove (Liverpool Street Station)
I think that I’m not alone in breathing a big sigh of relief that January is over. Siiiiiigh. But onwards and upwards to happier times – valentine’s/palentine’s day! Very marginally nicer weather! Spring cleaning/organisation! (yes, I’m aware that I’m probably the only person excited about that last one). This month I have: Played a Wedding… Continue reading January round-up

We’ve actually done a video using a song from OTGW before, but it was more of a straight cover, whereas our new offering contrasts the title track from the show with a traditional-style waltz (written by Larry Edelman). If you enjoy these videos, you can find the full list of them here.
