|The New Inn, Westerleigh|
There will be no session on Boxing Day, 26 December 2014. The next session will be on 2 January 2015 at our new venue, The New Inn, Westerleigh. Full details can be found on the Location page of this blog.
I hope we have many happy sessions at the new venue. The reason for the change is that we have had several cancelled sessions recently because of double bookings and the pub we previously used has become rather rowdy.

With the parish announcement out of the way we can get straight into the session report, as Derek got straight into the session the way he meant to go on.

Simon started off by pointing out that Monday 8th December is Jean Ritchie's 92nd birthday and singing her song, The L&N don't stop here anymore. Phil continued the railway theme with The runaway train (Robert E Massey, Harry Warren, Carson Robison) and George Allen (the dying engineer).
Matt, Nonny and Arian so far have only three songs together and they quickly got through those. I'm sure Mike would have appreciated their singing of Rolling down to old Maui (Roud 2005). Unfortunately he had just slipped out to calm down his dog. The second song from the trio was My lady's coach (probably Sabine Baring-Gould). The third and final song from their early repertoire was The deserter (Roud 493).
