In continuance from my previous posting: I've been back and had a look at my diaries, and the lady and her daughter are mentioned therein, primarily because of their friendliness and their talent, particularly the wonderful voice!! The 'club', at that point, was happening on a Wednesday night and, as such, had no pretensions toward a 'folk' theme - although, it has to be said I argued for the cause! It was billed, in as much as it was advertised at all, as a music night, when all and sundry were welcome to and take over the bar and play what they felt like playing......it's the closest I've ever come to experiencing absolute anarchy!! The main point of my original thread, though, still holds true....it's immensely difficult to persuade people to 'come out to play', which is why, as mentioned previously, I've adopted some of 'A.Friend's' suggestions in the time that I have been running the evening. When I took over the organisation, it was on the understanding that it would become a more 'traditional' type of evening, although if people wanted to be more contemporary, then that was fine too!! THE DRUMS IS GONE!!!!! Not to say that if a group of players arrived and wanted to do a bit of drumming, I'd turn them away!! I have shown the Landlady a copy of 'A.Friend's' posting, and she was, to say the least, horrified that ANYBODY should fgeel that unwelcome in her pub. She has extended an open invitation to the ladies in question to come and pay us a visit, and sample the REAL hospitality of the Bish. 'A.Friend': drop me a personal message, it's in the 'Cat' somewhere, and I'll give you the details. In closing, I'd like to say that, although we do have a small P.A., it is rarely plugged in these days, but is certainly available for use, should anybody wish to avail themselves; we are no longer happening on a Wednesday, but every 2nd and 4th Sunday. Plug over!!! Please, if you're around, drop by, we'd be only too happy to see you. Thank's to 'A.Firend' for his comments and to everyone else for their contributions. TELLER.
