A tremendous night at The Welly Folk Club last night, many thanks to all who came along, in particular the Mummers, now entering their 50th year as a group and still vibrantly good fun; keep an eye out for their 5oth Anniversary celebrations planned during next year.
The Santa on the cake for me was the Family, the Mummers and Doreen & Bryan Henderson finishing off with "The Miners Lifeguard", a song we, like so many others, got from Doreen's Dad, Jack Elliott. Birtley Folk Club had it's final night on Wednesday 17th December 2014, but the legacy and influence of that club and The Elliotts Of Birtley will continue for a very, very long time.
Happy Christmas & All The Best For 2015.
The Wilson Family
