Blueberry Hill

On Wednesday 12th March Helen Jacobs ran a workshops following on from the 1950’s commercials and children’s TV that we had watched the week before. 

Helen had a number of 1950’s labels and art décor for people to feel inspired by. 

The results were a wonderful selection of prints made by the group.

Then on Thursday 13th March Nick Gill and his piano came along and filled the room with some of his wonderful music. 

Nick began with

Bill Hailey -  Rock around the clock followed by a number of Doris Day hits - By the Light of the Silvery Moon, Moonlight Bay and
Secret Love (Calamity Jane). We had Louis Armstrong with Dream a Little dream, Fats Domino - Blueberry Hill. Elvis - Hound Dog and All shook up and old blue eyes himself Frank Sinatra - I've got you under my skin and I get a kick out of you.
