I suspect that most Seen
and Heard reviews are planned well in advance. In
this case, when my wife and I were staying in a pub in
Cornwall for a few days, by chance a musical play was
to be staged in the upstairs bar on Sunday evening. With
cultural expectations limited to some George Lloyd* on
the portable CD player, a book about Ukrainian tractors
and the crossword, free entry and the prospect of a beer
during the performance – how better to unwind after
a long walk?
* By way of an aside, George Lloyd was
“discovered” when a critic from The Times
heard his music whilst visiting Cornwall in the 1930s.
No parallel is intended; MusicWeb is not quite The
Times (Not yet, I hear Len Mullenger say) and
the Mikron company seems to be well-established already.
