Into 2009

2008 was a great year for the band with fantastic shows from Departure Lounge in Edinburgh to Knockengorroch in the deep south and HydroConnect on the west coast to Perth and Aberdeen in the north. Not forgetting of course the amazing West End Festival and Stereo gigs right here in Glasgow. The Euro-Odyssey was a flying success with Glasgow's bateria playing in excess of 12 gigs in 12 days across France Italy and Germany. 

We've played host to Verde Vai from London, Houba Samba from Montauban and both Barulho and Carnival Collective from Brighton. We've been lucky enough have expert tuition in samba-jungle from Pat Power and in Afro-Samba from mestre Marivaldo of the world famous afro bloco - Ilê Aiyê. 

9 members of SYB have had the opportunity to practice and play with the German based pan-european bateria, 'Bloco X' making Scotland one of the most strongly represented nations. Roddy, (our musical director) is just back from Rio and playing with the Samba School, Academicos da Rocinha and Monobloco for a less traditional take on Rio samba. 

This year looks just as promising with Brighton confirmed for April and an array of very tempting offers from Europe.

I would like to use the opportunity of sanyig thanks to you for that professional instruction I have enjoyed checking out your site. We are looking forward to the particular commencement of my school research and the general groundwork would never have been complete without dropping by this site. If I may be of any help to others, I would be delighted to help by means of what I have discovered from here.

Hi Simon,thank you for providing the knerel and modules. I had to change the archNumber to get the knerel starting by uboot. After setting the archNumber to 3104 the knerel starts but I have a problem with the ethernet interface. The module mv643xx_eth is getting started but a few minutes after using the interface something happens. The system freeze (no network, no ping).I don't know what is going wrong. There is nothing in the log files so I have no idea.Can you help me please. What are your experinces with this knerel?RegardsAlexander

Have you read "Bringing Home Birkin" ? It's AMAZING how many birkins this guy was able to get his hands on. He ran quite the luitvrcae business!As for me, the frugalista in me just can't justify spending that much when you could probably buy a decent car for the same price :( Maybe if I ever win the lottery...

rosemary Hi Karen,Lovely to see the recent picurtes and to remember our stay with you it was a very creative time for me and several poems as well as other writngs came out of it. I'm glad to hear Linda is going to stay and do a workshop again.My question: have you finalised the 2013-14 programme? If not , would you be interested in a workshop on Moroccan/Berber Art and Crafts? My other life is as an art historian and it occurred to me that this might be a topic that could attract people. If you are interested I can make a proper proposal.All the bestRosemary
