Music In The Garden with Cleo Laine and Friends

One balmy day back in June, Ginny and I enjoyed a glorious cream tea afternoon in The Old Rectory Garden at The Stables, Wavendon, for “Music In The Garden” with Cleo Laine and Friends.


Playing with her were John Horler on piano, Jim Hart on drums, Jules Barnes on bass and Mark Nightingale on trombone. Mind you, Cleo fired them all during the course of the afternoon.

What can I say about Cleo that hasn’t already been said, except that, besides her humour and pranks with the members of her band, the highlight of the afternoon was to be captivated when she sang “My Man Don’t Love Me” with her daughter Jacqui.
