... and we would love you to come! You can bring a cup and saucer if you want and if you fancy a cream bun - knock yourself out!
There'll be live music from our talented chums Schnapps and The Invisible Republic and Lady Wurlitzer (aka Made In The Shade's Carrie Maclennan) will provide a country tinged vintage soundtrack throughout the day.
Schnapps, fresh from gigs with White Denim, RTX (and by the time this show comes around) The Brute Chorus, have very kindly agreed to join our party and deliver some raw, abstract wonky tonk to our ears (most likely mediated by the effects of tequila). The band brings together musical and creative talent from all sorts of corners of the city and the resultant mixy-mashy that emerges from the meld is quite, quite fabulous. Oh yes siree!
The Invisible Republic have been good friends of Made In The Shade & FFF for a very, very long time and we're absolutely thrilled to have 'em along (with new members and all!) to our 2nd birthday party. The last time I heard the band play, I was stomping my feet and clapping my hands and singing along to their fabulous renditions of Hank Williams classics (arranged and performed especially for The Parsonage Hank Williams Tribute). Seeing the band on the Opry stage is one of my highlights of 2009 and I cannot wait to be swaying along to 'She Named A Bullet After Me' on the 1st Feb.
Aswell as getting together to celebrate the Fuzzy Felt Folk birthday, we're also tipping our stetsons to the launch of Clare Nicolson's brand new public crafting project, Country Crafting! If you are a maker or an all-round creative type and you fancy joining in on some pub crafting (or even some fun colouring in!) then we'd love to see you! Clare will have a load of creative fun in store and you can come along and ask her about her fabulous plans for 2009! Later in the year there'll be cross-stitch tutorials, knitting classes and all sorts of opportunties to make things. Come find out more!
We'll see you at Macsorley's between 3pm and 10pm!
