The weekend before last was all about rural touring. A full house greeted David and me at Calver Village Hall - over 100 people (which is more than fits into most village halls) welcomed us warmly and sent us on our way with two encores!

Unfortunately, some annoying rain the next day put a stop to my shopping plans in the market town of Chesterfield. However, I made a new discovery - Derbyshire Oatcakes! Sort of a Derbyshire version of the French crepe but even more fattening. The topping of sausage and cheese that smothered the dish was so abundant I could almost feel my arteries hardening just from looking at it. I have to admit that it was was very delicious although I wasn't able to eat very much of it.

We were treated to more delicious food before our show in Stanton. It was a smaller hall and a much smaller audience but what they lacked in quantity they more than made up for in quality. A lovely response for what was their last Live & Local event as the promoter was moving to another part of the county. And what was more - we were even allowed to take a doggy bag containing the delicious apple cake baked by the promoter Tim with us when we left - fortification for the long drive home.
