A drop of Nelson’s blood

A drop of Nelson’s blood

Last night we enjoyed the Warm Up concert at the Brewery Tap, Mitcheldean, with 8 fantastic acts performing over 5 hours of live music. Well done to everyone who performed, you were brilliant!

While we were so wonderfully entertained, people in London were also out enjoying the warm Saturday evening – until, that is, some were cruelly killed or injured in another terrorist attack.

In solidarity, here is a draft recording from Karl Jennings – one of his own original “faux folk” songs – recorded last night. Legend has it that Nelson’s body was preserved in a barrel of rum until it could be returned to England after Trafalgar. When his body was removed, his crew drank from the rum to give them courage.
