March 28, 2019

Welcome to the blog. A healthy crowd there was . Plenty of good music and Alex !!

Diamond Neil was the Graveyard slot and gave us Fire and Rain with it's lovely chords and fiddly bits.

Don was with and gave us 'Taking it slow', 'Cut and Run' and 'Turn Tail' all delivered in Don's recognisible style with a little help from his roadie, sorry I mean Jackie.  Thanks for the Diet Coke !! Don also played in an open C tuning, and very nice it was too.

The Silver Fox came armed with a few new songs the first was surprisingly a Ralph McTell song, 'Easter Lillies' it was about Easter Lillies. Then came 'Bright Eyes followed by 'Peacefull Easy Feeling'.

Ted and Anne gave there usual foot tapping stuff with jigs and reels a plenty, 'Sun and the Moon' and I'll tell me Ma'

Geoff, recently returned from the Nile got us in a singing mood with 'You're my best friend', Never Ending Love for you' and 'Que Sera'.

Charlie and Ronnie were next with most excellent Guitar anr Banjo and Mouth organ. 'Untouchable Romance' It aint me Babe' and' Don't think twice' were the songs they gave us. Charlie left the stage and Anita joined Ronnie and we had 'The Drunken Maiden' and 'The Brisk Butcher'.

Good to see Polly up for it and she sang us 'Follow the Heron', 'This Goodbye' and one of my faves 'Dancing in the Dark'.

GT was next met with raptuous applause. Kenny Rogers was the theme for tonight and we had 'Love or Something Like it' 'I'm missing you' and 'Slow Dance More'

Electric Graham was next under the Lime Light and we had 'Wherever I Iay my Hat', 'Dylans 'Make you Feel my Love' and 'Man of the World.' Nice guitar on that one Graham.

Up came Pluto Swint minus Aidan who is sunning his bum on a beach somewhere. The band gave us the olfdfave 'County Down' 'Margaritaville' and Don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys'. All round good acoustic sound.

Shy Eddie was next up and played us some great stuff on the Banjo. He began a medley with 'Turkey in the Straw' followed by numerous other tunes. Eddy finished with 'Green Door'.

Trumpet Paul gave us some oldies but goldies with, Billy Don't be a Hero', 'Weather with You' and 'Don't dream it's over'.

The Bard of Beddington was with us and gave us 'The Sargeant, and, 'No Wonder it's Cheap' all delivered in Tony's imimitiable style.
