RiGGy Oak Ash & Thorn at the Castle Folk Club (8) RE: Oak Ash & Thorn at the Castle Folk Club 03 Sep 99

It was PACKED ! Never [ in my memory ] before in 18 years of CastleFolkClubDumb did we have to turn folks away [ sorry 'bout that; wish it had been done more "gently" ]. Lottsa people I haven't seen in years, 'cause "they" hadn't been seen in years ! The small HOT room had about 55 folks elbow & happy for it !! They were GREAT ! Relaxed, funny, in great voice and tune; a real treat. They have the chestnuts down, ready to sing in their sleep. They also amazed me that their VERSIONS of other chestnuts had unique twists; BRIGHT SHINING MORNING without repeats, custom-commissioned melody for their signature piece, the Rudyard Kipling OA&T poem, major-minor switches on others to keep us guessin'! My fav was a "non-folk song" about alcohol-free beer HEY NON BARLEYCORN [ got the words Dave ???? ]. Also the sweetest AH ROBIN ah evah herd. Good work guys !!! RiGGy
