Sit Thee Sen Down (then dance!)


A warm Yorkshire welcome from a characterful ‘olde worlde’ cafe in the Yorkshire Dales photographed on one of our visits a few years ago.

The menu looks pretty straightforward and the price for tea or coffee with ‘cake of the day’ seems very reasonable especially if was a generous slice of cake!

On another subject – not unrelated to the post – music is very important to me; I have wide and varied tastes – from heavy metal to opera, and most inbetween. I’ve always liked brass bands and thought it would be fun to go and see a proper brass band concert whilst in the Yorkshire Dales. We went to see the Muker Silver Band one evening; great fun!

Across the musical genres if I had to pick a favourite band it would be Muse. I’ve loved everything they have done since I first came across them in 2000. Their talent and energy is a wonder to behold. So, imagine my joy a couple of weeks ago (during a stressful and unhappy week) when I came across a brass band playing their version of a high energy Muse song performed by Vigilante Brass. I can’t help but smile when I hear it and I thought I would share it here.

For any Muse fans who haven’t come across it I hope you’ll enjoy it and for any non-Muse fans I think you may find it great fun too; sheer joy!
