Did you actually read that? WE HAVE A BAND FOR WONDERLAND AT WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL! Aaghghghghghghghghghgh! I cannot believe it is happening – especially in light of the fact that the show itself is indeed about wonderful things happening – but in the past week, I have somehow managed to join forces with a drummer/guitarist, bass guitarist, saxophonist and keyboardist to do some musical comedy numbers AND improvised songs as part of the Wonderland show!
