Horns of Plenty is planning to celebrate May Morning, the coming of Spring, and the prospect of a return to normal social (and musical) life. We are rehearsing an arrangement of Ben King’s classic song Stand by Me.
We can’t tell yet where and when we will be playing this and other tunes. Get in touch if you would like to join us.
WATCH THIS SPACE for more details nearer the date.
One of the great traditions of this great city of ours is to celebrate May Morning, with the choir singing from the top of Magdalen College tower at 6.00am to welcome in the spring. It was not possible in 2020, but Horns of Plenty still celebrated the coming of Spring, and our wonderful and diverse range of key workers in our community in and around Oxford.
On Friday 1st May at 8.00am Horns of Plenty band members, together with friends, neighbours and other musicians played ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ all over the city from our own doorsteps, windows and pavements all across the city.
We chose to play ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ because it has existing links to the Corona virus community, links to last year’s May Morning choir singing and to celebrate the diversity of our great city. More than ever this year the lyrics seem apt.
See which streets told us they were taking part
All rehearsals and gigs are suspended for the time being. We are doing our part in not helping the spread of the epidemic. We will let you know as soon as we can recommence bringing joyful music to the streets of Oxford
Just wanted to thank all the clan of Horns of Plenty for your joyful contribution to the Fun on the Green at the festival. It really did add a lively and fun touch to the event.
Thank you so much for coming to play on Saturday. We raised over £2000. Lots of people said how much they enjoyed your music and what a great atmosphere you brought to the occasion.
Huge thanks to all the Horns so joyously creating the Carnival atmosphere on Cowley Road last night! It was the perfect start to the evening …
This is my favourite kind of music!
When you think of Carnival you think ‘young… Brazilian’. Well the next band aren’t either of those things, but my, they’re giving some welly!
