Objective achieved!

I think we can safely say that the Crocus of Hope is looking brighter and better this week. Thanks to everyone who came to our little corner of cyberspace for what turned out to be slightly over an hour of music. Yes, we talk too much, particularly when interrupted by cats!

If you didn’t make it on Sunday, or if there is something you would like to hear again, the (slightly) tidied-up version is now on YouTube here:

Thanks to the interesting way in which Zoom gives you the files of your recorded meeting, I have now got audio versions of all the songs, so I am planning to do separate versions of any of them which sound reasonable – there has never been a perfect live performance, anywhere, of anything – and put those on YouTube separately, but that will take a while.

We’re now going to take a break for the Easter holiday, so we’ll see you after that!

It’s 2021 Already!

Well, 2020 was a bit of a rollercoaster, wasn’t it. However, from the Triangle Music point of view, it had its up-sides. We became a support bubble and, as such, with not much to do but rehearse (and eat, and drink tea – so no change there!), we became a kind of go-to, ready-to-go band – and we weren’t complaining!

We also pushed the boat out and got ourselves a paid-up Zoom account, so that we could keep Folk at the Boat going through the bad times. It has been a delight to welcome friends and performers from places far from New Cut West, and we are wondering if, when normal service resumes, it will be possible to maintain the Zoom link so that we can share the live session with our more distant chums. Watch this space!

New songs got written. Ooh! New Songs!!

Now, the question arises: how do we get those songs out of our living rooms and into the wider world? Plans for another collaboration fell through at the last minute, so we felt that we were “all dressed up and nowhere to go” – but, hang on, we have a Zoom account … so, why not come and join us?

A chance for YOU to be present as we celebrate the Spring Equinox with the launching and recording of THREE fabulous brand-new songs!
You’ll need to take our word for that of course (and we are a bit biased) but we think you are really going to enjoy our new work.
The gig is free at the point of entry, but we are asking for donations to FIND (Families in Need Ipswich).
Please contact us for the Zoom link, either through Facebook or by e-mail at or
