Largest audience Frampton has had in 20 years

A fabulous evening last night in Frampton, Lincolnshire.  The organisers said it was their largest audience in the twenty years that they have been running the touring scheme. And Fordante certainly had a enjoyable concert performing there.

BBC Radio Shropshire in Fordante studio today

Many thanks to Genevieve Tudor from BBC Radio Shropshire for coming over to the studio today and having a chat about all things film, cello and music related. Not sure when the interview is being broadcast out as it might require a little editing first.. Great fun as always though.

Coincidentally also today I’ve just had BBC Radio Lincolnshire on the phone book another interview for next January’s return tour around Lincolnshire.
