And for my next song I will do, Agadoo

Ray Winstone Smythe shocked a small gathering at his local pub, the King’s Left Elbow in Chutney on the Fritz, after playing some Ragtime on the pub’s old guitar, and putting the instrument back on its stand.

Onlooker Chunky Jumper said ‘It was very impressive. Imagine our surprise when we started hearing some Scott Joplin in the room, and before you know it, we saw that Ray was there playing on the guitar. They were both covered in dust, it gets used so irregularly, but once he knew we were all listening, he got to the end of the piece and just stopped. There was an embarrassing silence, nobody said anything, and he just put the guitar back. It really was the highlight of the night, and it will make a change from Graham banging away at Knee’s Up Mrs Brown on the old piano at Christmas’
