Can see the Wrekin from my window right this moment! Live in Wenlock. I believe there were a couple of other people from Shropshire here. Once all this COVID stuff is done, we should do a VI meet-up!
I look out to the Wrekin every winter morning @ sunrise with my eldest daughter (7yrs) to see what the day's weather is going to bring - and hopefully if it's not too cloudy or a decent sunrise - to try to entice her to get her lazy arse out from under her duvet and start getting ready for school!
There are indeed a group of Shropshire VIC-ers: Me, you, @shropshirelad, @pmountford, @BeneJ @rollasoc - and probably some others. We had a little meet up in Shrewsbury about 18months /2 years ago. Think people would be willing to do so again next year once we've all been thoroughly dosed!! We did say to Phil that next time we'd head over to him (Bridgenorth) so will aim to do that.
Anyway - as we now form a quorum fit to rival that of any media metropolis, I thought we should have our own thread. Don't expect it to be particularly busy - but you know, it's here if we want it. You guys might enjoy watching some of the videos the Shropshire Music Trust have been putting out in the past few weeks, curated and presented by Zoe Byers, local resident & leader of the English Symphony Orchestra. They're not at all virtual instrument/media composition related but they are about music and passionate musicians - I've linked a couple below.
I know I'm being a bit premature with this - but when the world has awoken from the nightmare of 2020 then please do add any news of good local gigs or other goings on here. I recon it'll be more important than ever to be in touch with real people locally in 2021 as a sanity check at least.
Right-o, speak soon I hope
