    Five the toes on little feet
    Five the fingers on your hand
    Five the years that time has marked
    Since the Strollers formed their band

    It was five years ago, at the wedding on Miss Lothilia Bolewood and Master Rurydoc Featherfoot, that a group of three hobbits got together to play a few tunes for the happy couple. Such was the success of the music they decided to form a band, and play their music throughout the Shire. Thus the Songburrow Strollers were born.

    Much has changed in five years, and band members have come and gone, but the Strollers are stroll going strong. It is only right and proper that such an anniversary is worthy of an extra special celebration! But where to play? The scene of one of their previous concerts perhaps? Brockenborings? Budgeford? Frogmorton? Bywater? Hobbiton? The answer is, of course, all five!

    To celebrate five years, the Strollers will literally be 'strolling' across the Shire, performing five short sets at some of the lovely villages in the Shire. Folk from all over the Shire are welcome to come along and stroll with us!

    What a lovely idea! I remember the Budgeford concert like it happened yesterday: it was the first Strollers concert that my uncle took me along to see. First time I heard the Strollers? No! I had heard them before in Buckland, a younger lass still, sitting on the strong shoulders of my Pa to have a good look! And Yola was there too! A rather unique situation if you look back on it now! And it made me a life time Strollers fan!

    Yay, good times! *strums the lute*
  4. Rowana Voluntary Assistant Chief (Semi-retired)

    Grand indeed, better grab a stout walking stick and some provisions for the journey.
  5. Lully Member

    *nods* Sausages! Oh... and pork for that Stoutfoot lass *chuckles*

    I am feeling distinctly off-colour (a fetching Strollers shade of green?) so I won't be able to join you but I know you will do the band proud. Good luck Strollers! *cheers*
  8. Simbo Bandmaster of the Songburrow Strollers

    Awwwww!

    Get well soon, Miss Rowana. A shame you can't make the concert, but it should still be a grand event. Hopefully there will be lots paintings made, and even some of those moving magic pictures!
  9. Simbo Bandmaster of the Songburrow Strollers

    Thanks to everyone who came to the concert this evening, and a big thanks to all the guest Strollers who could join us on stage too! And an extra big thanks to Miss Bootsy who gladly appeared to stand in for Rowana!

    *Cheers!*

    To five more years!
  10. Lina Chief

    Hooray, that was grand! I'll just echo Simbo's thanks, and I hope to have me drawings up tomorrow!
  11. Lina Chief

    Lots of pictures are now up on the Biscuity burrow! I'll just add a couple here:
