Previous Competition Winners

Thanks to everyone who entered our last two competitions!

The winner of the accordion competition was Christa Hugo from Stourbridge with this entry:

I always wanted to play like Hendrix, but I couldn't grasp the pick.
So next I tried conducting but kept on dropping the stick.
I've attempted to play the trombone, but I just don't have the puff.
I've even tried the wobble board but I guess I'm not wobbly enough.
The cornet confused me, the cello was a joke
The violin was vile, the oboe just made a croak.
So the accordion is for me, I think it'll be a wheeze
All I need to do is press the keys and squeeze!

The winner of the Cajon competition was John Kirby from Manchester, who made us laugh with this:

I cant smell it, I cant spell it, I cant play it,
I can sit on it, with my kilt on it, but must cover my cajons.

Well done, your prizes are on the way!
