Due to some business I had to do earlier in the week I have not got round to adding detail to this report until now (Thursday). I't's way too late to be writing a full report of last week's session so I will just touch on two things.
It is traditional to mention all songs sung by a newcomer. In this case our newcomer was Jim who sang: Good Old Mountain Dew (Roud 18669), Rosin The Bow (Roud 1192), Drink Up Thy Zider (Adge Cutler), Smuggler (Ian McCalman, based on an earlier poem), and Sweet Sunny South (Roud 772).
Finally, these are the songs which I didn't find on YouTube and which you won't hear at the "a selection" link below:
- Simon - The Lincolnshire Song (John Sykes)
- Colin - Prop Of The Land (Roud 1254)
- Derek - sings a long song which is a combination of three (all among those linked below), Galtee Farmer (Roud 9305, 5312) / Bonny Bogieside (Roud 4593) / Bogie’s Bonny Belle (Roud 2155)
- Derek - A song which Derek has successfully challenged me on before and I noted down as "The Wooden Plough Ploughs All". The only thing I know, from a previous outing, is that it is English.
Please do come to the Dragon Folk Club any Friday from 8:15pm at The Bridge Inn, Shortwood, Bristol, BS16 9NG. As I always say, any sort of performance is welcome as long as it's acoustic, and audience members are welcome too. Entry is free, there's a well-priced bar just a few steps away, and we have great acoustics. See you there!
Here's a selection of songs sung during this session.
