Piping Hot Recorders play recorder music in North West Cumbria. We're all women, and
come from a variety of backgrounds including America, Scotland, Northern Ireland and even
Why Piping Hot? It has been suggested the name came about as a joke, because we seem
to end up playing so often in very cold churches.
As our collection of photos was becoming somewhat unwieldy I've uploaded a few of
them to my Flickr photostream. If you'd like to see them, please follow the PHOTOS link at
of any of our pages.
7 of us Ruth Smith, Ally McGurk (front), Rachel McConkey (peeping over Ally's
head), Sam Willis, Val Hetherington, Sharon Taylor, Jane Bebbington.

Jonathan Smith, our original mascot.
Our collection of mascots is growing. Jonathan now has a little brother, and Sam has
recently produced the wonderful young Kit (the baby who understands instinctively the need
to be quiet in a recording studio). We hope to have photos of these redoutable young
gentlemen in due course.
