Five the toes on little feet
Five the fingers on your hand
Five the years that time has marked
Since the Strollers formed their band
It was five years ago, at the wedding on Miss Lothilia Bolewood and Master Rurydoc Featherfoot, that a group of three hobbits got together to play a few tunes for the happy couple. Such was the success of the music they decided to form a band, and play their music throughout the Shire. Thus The Songburrow Strollers were born.
Much has changed in five years, and band members have come and gone, but the Strollers are stroll going strong. It is only right and proper that such an anniversary is worthy of an extra special celebration! But where to play? The scene of one of their previous concerts perhaps? Brockenborings? Budgeford? Frogmorton? Bywater? Hobbiton? The answer is, of course, all five!
To celebrate five years, the Strollers will literally be ‘strolling’ across the Shire, performing five short sets at some of the lovely villages in the Shire. Folk from all over the Shire are welcome to come along and stroll with us!
All times are UK times. Subtract five hours for servertime.
