May I ask:
"LNB" = ?

Thought this might turn up, but could not find.

Thanks,

Steve
Late Night Band, something to do with a band that played at a Sidmouth FF Late Night Ceilidh I believe.

LNB = Late Night Band - a group of musicians who formed to play the late night ceilidh (going into the small hours) at Sidmouth Folk Festival. LNB Polka was one of their tunes.

What does a melodeon and a lawsuit have in common?

Everybody’s happy when the case is closed

But survived long after....their CD is a thing of beauty...which, of course, I can't find to post details of.  As well as said polka it features a lovely version of Al Bowely's "Close Your Eyes"...

yer t'is....http://www.discogs.com/Late-Night-Band-Strange-Survivals/release/5133461....for the dance aficiandos amongst you also responsible for the waltz phenomenon that is Gordon Potts' Rozsa.  Recorded 25 years ago and still sounds fresh as a fresh thing

Cheers Lester...don't know why
It happened because the forum software changes everything that starts with 'http' etc to a link, it assumes everything from the 'http' until there is a space is part of the link. Unfortunately you followed the link with '...for' so that was added to the link.

Does anyone know what Jean Blanchard intended the name to translate as?  Is is "Barndance" or "Lunchcart" or something relating to wheels or circles?

Among the various meanings of the word, the one's that seem most appropriate are 'the drifter/wanderer' or 'the show off/swaggerer', but I don't know for sure.
