Club Night 6th November 19

November 07, 2019

Welcome one and all to the blog. Relatively quiet night but gave us all 3 songs with no rush. Nice. Here's an overview.

I was in  the graveyard slot and kicked off with Freight train followed by Summertime. The Silver Fox joined me under the lights and we did 'One too many mornings' which the Fox sang without crib sheets!! Keith also sang Sweet 16.

Up came Les with a sackful of his own ditties and he gave us 'Don't leave me nothing' and 'The Town of Yesterday'

Up rose Sunrise and and gave a bit of Paul Simon, and Four Strong Winds'

Shy Eddie was in fine fettle having just returned from the Emerald Isle. Of course Eddie got us all singing along. Eddie finished with 'Bucks Polka' an instrumental. It was excellent.

Geoff was with us and again got us all singing. He gave us Singing the Blues and Four Walls.

The Bard of Beddington was next and gave us the rathy saucy 'Marie' and 'Reasonably nice to me Waltz. I joined the Bard for a couple of instrumentals, L'Innconnu and Glenamady.

The Dynamic Duo in the shape of Charlie and Ronnie. Always a pleasure to hear Ronnie's subtle banjo. Charlie threw in one of his own as well as a bit of Dylan.

Electric Graham took to the stage and included Drive and Time in a Bottle supported on nylon string by Paul as well as Diamond Neil from the audience.

GT was here and started with the powerful , 'Nothing ever Changes'. followed by 'Twelth of Never' and 'Pearl's a Singer. All good stuff.

Paul came back for his own set . We had "Saving all my love for you' a bit of Tracey Chapman and MY Oh MY by Slade no less. Hadn't heard it for years !!

On came the Pluto Swint Trio who gave us a lovely acoustic sound. We had 'Day's Gonna Come, a bit of Johnny Cash and Cody .. Despite asking Dave the full title I've promptly forgot it. See the video.

Here we were at the Arse end of the evening and Diamond Neil gave us two belters. 'Crying in the Rain and Sailing to Philadelphia. Excellent.

That was it !!
