GUEST,MadauntieCat What are they singing in English Pubs? (79* d) RE: What are they singing in English Pubs? 10 Apr 10

Last Widdlesday at the Plume of Feathers (Glos UK) we had:
Gravel Walks
Dick Gossip
King of the Fairies
   The Sleeping Song
Starry Night
other jigs and reels wot I know not the names of
Ratcatcher's Daughter
   Tom o'Bedlam
    No Money, No Whiskey, No Wine
Several English morris-type accordion songs- Down in the Valley,Oats and Beans etc
Past the Point of Rescue
Nice flute solo
   Nice spanish style geetar solo
Slightly unhinged song about why Pharaohs don't rate pyramid shaped teabags, accompanied on the mandolin and garlic.

Previously and frequently we also have:
Lots of other jigs, reels and hornpipes (we have a couple of decent fiddle and bodhran players)
The Standard English Bottom
   Bob's miserable songs with long intros (he's famous for them)
Iko Iko
Virtuoso hammer dulcimer playing (he is so talented!)
Stuff. Lots of stuff!

Good luck, Bert. It'll be a blast. Make sure you have a cheerful song to follow 'Isn't it Grand' though... ; )
