Catalogue Note

The young man on the left poses with assured insouciance, casually holding his flute in one hand; the seated young woman on the right holds a concertina and regards the camera with an alert but relaxed air.  The third member of this trio is the white-bonneted young woman who leans into the frame, her just-slightly blurred figure suggesting that her presence there is a surprise.
