As it happens we’re currently on the M25 and it’s not very open but I’m sitting next to Donald Walnut in the back of the camper – he’s writing contracts or something equally lawyerly. Matt and Fergus are up front, eyes on the road, discussing the best things to dunk in tea. I’m just enjoying the rattle and hum of our Bailey’s Advance camper.
If someone said to me as a small boy that I would be going on an adventure to find the best sausages in Europe when I grow up I would have known, in that moment, that life was going to be good.
PRESS RELEASE May 16th 2017
The Walnuts are a group of middle-aged musicians from Berkshire who play Celtic music, Folk and Americana.
Between June 28th and July 4th 2017 they will be travelling together in a motorhome all the way to Oslo and back, to play a series of concerts in aid of Alzheimer’s care and research and in Amsterdam for Hope Beyond Displacement.
They will be stopping along the way for refreshment, and will play music wherever they stop, regardless of whether anyone has asked them to do so. The only way to cease them playing will be to put money into their cake tin.
