Main Street Singers in Abingdon


The Main Street Singers, who come from near San Francisco in California, were here in Abingdon performing at St Helens Church. They are on a tour of Ireland and the UK.

On this concert tour, they have not only been singing - their real passion, but they have also been able to visit the spectacular Irish countryside, and see some important places in historical Britain. They were in Bath last night, visited Stone Henge this morning and performed in England's Oldest Town, Abingdon, this evening. In London they have a couple of days break before their final performance.

Then comes the return flight to the USA - volcano ash permitting.

That volcano did scupper one Abingdon event I hoped to cover. The Abingdon Herald was also going to send a photographer...

Visitors from Hiroshima were to bring seeds from the peace tree - which unexpectedly bloomed after the A - or was it H - bomb destroyed everything within a few miles.

Because of the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano ash those seeds will now need to be posted.

I think you'll find that was an A-bomb - nuclear fission. The H-bomb is nuclear fusion.

Yes, yes. Either way -- it was rather loud.
