Brother Pit 'Brings It Home' at the Green Dragon

Folk Band Brother Pit

A big thank you to our new favourite folk band Brother Pit gig at the Green Dragon recently, raising a brilliant £138.12 on the night!

It continued the band's series of annual performances in support of local cancer charities, which Star Throwers are grateful to be the beneficiaries of this year.  Accordion and percussion player Matt Wood said:

"It was a great night. We played a number of new songs which went down really well, and Norfolk Harmony did a short set in the middle of the evening which added even more variety that usual.

"Cancer has touched the lives of a number of band-members, so each year we try to do at least one fund-raiser for a relevant charity. This year we wanted to put on a show in Wymondham, so Star Throwers was the obvious choice."

Guitarist and song‐writer Simon Bowles, who grew up in Wymondham, added: "In recent years we have staged our charity concerts at the Puppet Theatre in Norwich, but it was great to ‘bring it all home’ to Wymondham this year for Star Throwers!"

Thank you so much to everyone involved on the evening, from the Brother Pit band - Simon Bowles (guitar, vocals, song-writing), Theresa Bowles (vocals),
 Rick Lee (mandolin, vocals, harmonica), Pete Lee (guitar, vocals), Michael Arnander (guitar, vocals), Jez Johns (banjo), and Matt Wood (accordion, percussion) - to the Norfolk Harmony and to everyone at the Green Dragon for hosting the evening and raffling off a hamper!
