Welcome one and all to the Blog. Plenty of musicians eagarly waiting to ply their trade. We started off with two songs apiece due to numbers.

Diamond Neil was in the graveyard slot and and gave us 'Have to say I love you in a song.

Up I came with I know my Babe followed by the ever effervecent Paul with his 70's theme making us all jump out of our seats with the opening noises in 'Crazy Horses'. A bit of Suzi Quatro was next with 'Can the Can'.

Aidan and Vicky were next a couple of tunes from Aidan's banjo and a song from their holiday Tura Lura Lay' (Please check Spelling)

On came Alex and gave us Shotgun and 'Buckets of Rain' which Jane joined him on.

Charlie and Ronnie were next with Peaceful Easy Feeling and No sign of my Beauty. Very sympathetic Banjo and Mouth Organ from Ronnie.

GT stepped up to the plate with Buy me a Rose and Love or Something like it. All in GT's melifluous tones. Some excellent accompanying guitar to boot.

Sunrise in partial eclipse as a duo sang 'And I Love her' and 'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.

Good to see Polly back on stage. The Bard and myself joined her for 'Accross the great divide' and she went on to sing 'California Blue'.

A treat was in store when  Young Ellie sung us 'I had a dream' accompanied by Trevor. Wonderfull !!

On came the Silver Fox with 'You were always on my mind with  backing vocals from the the floor. A John Prine song followed.

On came the Bard with a song about Annie and 'A Meercat is not only for Xmas. All good stuff.

Good to see Don back with us . He kicked off with a traditional blues song called 'Poor Boy' follwed by one of Don's own which are always ace.

The good music rolled on and Geoff gave us 'You're the reason I don't sleep at night' and Eric Clapton's 'Wonderful Tonight'.

Les was next with his own most excellent songs.. Which were 'Everything under the Sun' and Reaching Out'.

A different duo emerged next in the shape of Nick the Slide and Electric Graham and we had 'Little Red Rooster and 'Rocking in the Free World'. Really good stuff.

The Pluto Swint Trio were in fine form with a good nmix of Banjo and Guitar. We had 'Say you Love Me' and Streets of Bakersfield'.
