Busy Lizzie Boars Head Session, Middlewich is back! (1) Boars Head Sessions, Middlewich is back! 19 Mar 14

Well my lovely music friends!
Who remembers the days of the really good Boars Head Session second Saturday of the month?

If you do – didn't we have some great nights? Fiddles, guitars, banjos, shaky eggs, bodrans, melodeons and some great tunes and songs.
Good beer, good friends! I have some very happy memories of the sessions, staying up really late and into the early hours in fact! Thanks Liz McGuinness for not throwing us out! And we have had some great festival sessions too. Well times change – people come and go and so do organisers!

I am pleased to tell you that The New Boars Head Session is going to start up again at the Boars Head, Middlewich on Saturday April 12th with a new organiser! Well two of us in fact. Sean Boyle is going to joint host with me; The New Boars Head 'Saturday Folk' Session. All genres welcome – but where Sean is around there will definitely be a choice of real folk songs ranging from traditional to new folk, and from Americana to sea Shanties and no one around here knows more about folk songs than Sean. Middlewich is a town with a reputation for some excellent folk music and I am keen to keep the Boars Head at the heart of it.

Do come and join us and lets bring 'folk' back to Middlewich! The first New Boars Head 'Saturday Folk' Session will take place from 8pm on the second Saturday of every month.

Thank you to Liz McGuinnes for asking me! In turn I would like to invite you all to join us on April 12th for a music session to get us into the swing of things, and then every second Saturday after that.

May 10th New Boars Head 'Saturday Folk' Session.
June 7th 'Saturday Folk' and of course over the MFab festival weekend we'll have sessions and sing-arounds for you to join in and enjoy.

I shall still be hosting my Cheshire Folk Club on first Sunday of the month – which has really developed into the most excellent singer songwriter evenings which we do love, but an alternative 'folk session' is definitely required!

I am planning to put a link on my Cheshire Folk Group page on both Facebook and on my website – details below.
