Music from the Kitchen

An art installation that also becomes an orchestra.  Play the spoons and washboard.  "Play the Rig" was set up in the courtyard of St Georges church last week as part of the centenary celebration of Emily Davison's life.  Emily was a militant suffragette whose life ended tragically as she fell under the King's horse at the Epsom Derby in June 1913.

I like it, such a nice tribute to the suffragettes.

What fun. I wonder how many people stop to play.

In the late 50s we called it 'Skiffle'.
