Subject: RE: Music Police raid Sloop, Barton Lincs
Very pleased to be able to report that I have talked to the landlord at the Sloop. He will be delighted to welcome all folkies next Tuesday, starting arond 8.30, I've no doubt the usual pizza/sausage/chips or whatever will be offered, no doubt also the music police will be there, so we will have our own (nicely bare for the acoustics) room. Tony is of course on our side, the landlady was visibly upset when this nastiness happened on Tuesday, just imagine what would happen just about anywhere else in the world if musicians playing acoustic music were threatened! Imagine if it were Galway or Connemara! They WOULD chuck the buggers in the nearest large body of water!
But let's not be vindictive, our love of the oral music tradition is what matters, all the regulars would be delighted to have a packed session next Tuesday, and thank all visitors in advance for their support. This week Barton, next week....?
