We have a Railway Song theme night at Brighton Cellarfolk every summer.

The next one is SOON - 11th August (Tuesday fortnight - and why am I not at the club tonight.....).

It's loose of course, as we'll have the City of New Orleons from one of our regular supporters; and I expect some other singers will dive into the US railroad tradition - as that's what most people know.

But the idea is to highlight the fact that the UK has a substantial clutch of songs about our national railways - and we'd particularly welcome anyone with songs about 'Black Fives', the L&NER, Saltash Viaduct?; etc.

So... August 11th, Cellarfolk Song Club, Round Georges pub, Sutherland Road, Kemptown, Brighton. we start by 9pm.
