Just a quick update. Last Saturday we played our annual benefit gig for the Whitby RNLI organised as usual by Graham and Anne Holmes . Also as usual , it was a great success. Compered with his accustomed panache by the unflappable Jimmy Lupton we had a fantastic evening of music enhanced , in no small measure , by our guest for the evening the wonderful Ray Stubbs. A thoroughly good time was had by all ! We’re looking forward to Friday’s gig at Korks in Otley. First time the Diamonds have played there though Steve has appeared there a couple of times solo. Tuesday 29th we welcome to the Grosvenor our friend Terry Swazeland to play the interval spot and no doubt to sit in with us .
