This is awesome. Sometimes when I'm online I think "I'll just see what events are on." and then it turns out that there is a great concert in Pasadena, or London or whatever, Glasgow is just up the road from me.
Does anyone fancy a meetup?

This year I am not taking part in the learning aspects of the BGW. But I shall be attending most of the concerts, so look out for me.
