What the Critics Say

"When Dave & Doreen closed it together with the audience, seemed like another evening well spent."
Lars Nilsson:- 'Green Man Review' - precied..
"I need to record my thanks for the opportunity to play with the Wandle Delta String Band. I had always wanted to play with other musicians, but had no idea how to get started. The welcome and encouragement at Court Sessions was just what was needed.. Thank you all."
