The DeanMeister Beverley, Sunday sessions notice board (53* d) RE: Beverley, Sunday sessions notice board 31 Oct 07

Nowt wrong with your memory, Linda. To my mind it made most sense, and with a bit of cajoling and ringing around we always had a pub FULL of singers and musicians, and a top afternoon was had by all. Chorus songs had a proper chorus complete with 4 part harmony. The only complaints I ever had were that people had to wait too long to hear the sound of their own voice when it was busy. I think that's why the different sessions were started up. The whole thing started a steady decline after that.

We originally started the monthly session to recreate that fantastic atmosphere that used to prevail in Nellies when the Folk Festival was on, and, for five years, it worked. I'm still very proud of that.
I'm not quite sure what the aim of six sessions a week is. The only additional ones that had any purpose were the Woolpack (now Tiger) on a Wednesday, which was solely for the tune-meisters, fair enough, and Roger's every other Tuesday at Sun which was for people to learn to play tunes together (a noble cause).
