A unique evening combining Music and Geography. The evening’s programme, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Bedford Geographical Association, included songs linked to geographic themes; Bedford (and some of its famous residents); and what was popular in music 50 years ago. The evening will included performances from the Bedford School Dance Band, Gabrielle Bell, Rex Walford and the Moonlighters.
The Moonlighters performed for the first time:-
Wonderful World (arranged by Paul Parsons)
The Geographical Fugue (Ernst Toch)
The Girl from Ipanema (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
and Now is the Hour ( Maori Song of Farewell)
as well as old favourites from the Glen Miller era.
