Many thanks to all the musicians, singers and followers who attended the first meeting at this new venue.I cannot recall any session being so well attended in the past . In many ways we were the victims of our own success as too many people were unable to fit comfortably in the space provided. The large numbers of the general listening public also added to the logistical problems. Musicians were 'spread ' rather than being in close proximity to each other. The pub was also somewhat noisy due to its popularity.The net result was that many fine individual singers could not be heard or were reluctant to sing at all against the general noise...apologies to them. The pub itself has a great atmosphere, staff and beer and we were made very welcome.It was impossible to predict the incredible response and level of support which we received . In time , the sessions may well prove to be less popular and the venue and session will be more manageable. We propose continuing with subsequent sessions at the Star and the next will be on the 19th Feb at around 3 p.m.. There cannot be too many folk sessions which have suffered due to ,almost, too many attending....a relatively happy position. Thank you for your support.
