Nov 18:   Gypsy & Balkan Campfire Jam Session and Ceilidh
  St Pauls Church Centre, Marylebone, London NW1
  The LGO was joined by many other musicians to play tunes for this lively

  members of Maspindzeli, the London Georgian Choir, were also present
  and sang us some of their striking harmony pieces.

Sept 22: Eltham College
  Eltham, south-east London
  A very enjoyable concert in the college's excellent theatre - this performance
  for 'Eltham College Society' (senior pupils and staff of the college) was received
  with enormous enthusiasm, many of the students being new to Eastern
  European and Gypsy music.

Dec 6: RelayNET fundraising event at The Yacht Club 
  Victoria Embankment, Central London
  This took place on a boat moored on the Thames - the novelties of the setting
  included some ceilings too low to fit the double bass, and playing whilst the
  boat gently rocked to the changing tides...

  Highbury, North London
  Our first formal concert, for invited friends and acquaintances, followed by
  lively socialising and dancing. Photos in the Gallery - see right for link.

Dec 3:   Chatsworth Market Festival
  Hackney, East London
  This, our first public performance, was a very promising start indeed -
  despite the bitter cold of this outdoor festival in the depths of winter, we soon
  drew a large, enthusiastic and dancing crowd from the surrounding streets.

Nov 13:   Gypsy Campfire Jam, Le Quecumbar
  Battersea, South London
  An informal jam session led by Gundula Gruen and the LGO.
