'All Around My Hat' was a big hit for the English folk/rock group Steeleye Span in the 70s and will be the opening number for Loosely Woven's first all-new concert for 2010.

On this occasion the program includes a larger than usual number of well known songs including 'Scarlet Ribbons', 'For all we know', 'A Couple of Swells', 'What I like about you', 'Wind beneath my wings', 'Bella Ciao', 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall' and 'Tuxedo Junction' plus all sorts of other wonderful stuff!

There are 25 of us performing this time with an instrumental line-up that includes: harp, flutes, clarinets, saxophones, violin, mandolin, trumpet, guitars, keyboard, concertinas, accordion, keyboard and percussion.

See the 'All Around My Hat' web site for details of the program.
