Pete_Standing Unaccompanied Singers (82* d) RE: Unaccompanied Singers 21 Apr 08

From Abuwood Even in Oxford they wanted to diddle diddle over the song....

Where was that? I've seldom ever heard an instrumentalist trying to accompany a singer, and if someone did that to Graham Metcalfe, then he would tell them to shut up.

I prefer a mixed session, but understand the desire for having tunes or singing sessions, I also think instrumentalists should keep silent for singers unless asked to join in.

Incidentally, The Victoria Arms in Old Marston is starting a session for singing on the first Wednesday of the month - instruments will be allowed but tunes will discouraged. This is in addition to the established mixed session, which is a bit tune heavy, held on the third Wednesday of the month. May 7th will be where Claire Lloyd (formerly of the Giles, Metcalfe and Lloyd trio, Folly Bridge), will be saying goodbye before leaving for Spain. So, we have got rid of Graham and now Claire, it's just Ian we need to see that back of now. I suggest Van Dieman's Land for him.
