      Female Vocalist (London) seeks a local BLACKMORES NIGHT tribute band to join?

      BLACKMORES NIGHT Tribute Band (Brighton, UK): Female vocalist required


      (Reposted on behalf of Martin):

      Hi. I'm Martin (52), play guitar, done all the rocky stuff over the years and now find I really enjoy the music of 'Blackmore's Night'. So I really need a female singer who also loves the songs and would like to try singing them. (Music is Medieval Folk/Rock look them up on youtube
      http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=blackmore%27s+night&search=Search or Google them)

      Start as a duo; then maybe work up slowly to a full tribute band. Would be nice to play a few quiet pubs of a Sunday afternoon and take it from there. If you also play the Flute, Fiddle, Tin Whistle, percussion, or similar; that would be great but not essential. Interested? Then drop me a line.

      I'd also like to hear from any other musicians that would like to be involved at the full band stage. Fiddle/Flute/Guitar-Acoustic and Electric/Bass/Keys/Drums/Percussion/Bagpipes and anything else you can think of.  The idea is to get a varied bunch of Minstrels together to try and avoid the unreliable "sorry I can't make the rehearsal/gig tonight as my cat has died" problem that always seems to occur when forming a band. So some combination can always play. Well that is the idea; sounds good on paper!

      Bye for now.
      Your humble Court Jester
