From: Les in Chorlton

Friends,
"Songs and Tunes mostly but not exclusively traditional, on the first Wednesday of the month", at The Beech, Chorlton,
will be one year old on Wednesday 3 December.

If you are a regular, if you have sung once or twice, if you have not blessed us yet, if you have intended to come but never quite made it, please come to The Beech next Wednesday and help us celebrate live music, old songs, new songs, tunes and the people who enjoy them and of course some excellent beer.

Best wishes

Les Jones
pp them as sing in the Snug of the Beech

I won't be there on Wednesday, alas, but I can tell you that I've never tried to sing a Wizzard song. Some Great Pop Things are too Great for a mere folkie. (I might just work up The Wild-Eyed Boy from Freecloud for January, though.)

IB - sorry, no; way out of my league. To do justice to the Works of Woody you'd need to be some kind of long-haired maverick multi-instrumentalist with his own recording setup, and I'm not sure I even know anyone like that...

David - great news. As I said upthread, it doesn't look like I'll be there, but I'll be sorry to miss you. I must cadge a lift to one of those singers' nights of yours some time.

Dave,

it's certainly looking a bit grim here today. I think tank-tops are possible with an appropriate song,

Thank you Dave, Spleen and Flootwood for interestong suggestions and support.

I am tempted, in the spirit of the Living Tradition, to encourage people to dress in cloths of a specific and recognisable era.

This will probably stretch from demob. suits, Beatnicks and Teddy Boys ..................

I'll be there at 8, maybe we'll get in a few tunes before the ruckus starts proper ; )

Can't make up my mind whether to do Farewell to Tarwathie, or Scarborough Fair - what do you think?
will have to try to borrow Kens' gittar again since space will no doubt be at a premium.

Looks like things have conspired agaisnt me once again:-( Still may just get there but Senora el Gnomo is really poorly and laid up in bed. I am going to have to play it by ear and see if she can manage without my ministrations for a while but I am serioulsy considering ringing the doctor at the moment.

And I had just sorted out a wonderful pullover. Wonder if it can get there on it's own...

Cheers

dave,
it will be a shame if you don't make it but I hope we will have plenty more and I trust Senora el Gnomo gets well soonest. Perhaps Dial-a-pullover, the well known division of Dial-a-Pizza could deliver the pullover and we could take turns in wearing it as we sing

Cheers

Happy Birthday to all at the Beech tonight; much as I'd like to join in the festive choruses the weather and road conditions all seem to be conspiring against me.
Have a great sing as you pass the pullover round!

Good call from me I think - Took Senora to the docs this morning and they have diagnosed pneumonia:-( Poor luv! Lots of anti-biotics and hopefuly on the mend soon.

Anyway, how did it go. With or without sartorial comment?

It was an excellent evening (as usual) and many thanks must go to Les for bringing us such joys, even though he wasn't wearing a pullover.

The evening very nearly came to a premature end when there was a smell of gas. However it turned out the gas was outside so we continued for another half hour or so. Ah, so much excitement and music too!

Well done Les, and long may it continue.

A worthy birthday bash which set the standard for 2009!!

There was even a smattering of well-under 30's who sang superbly.

All in all an excellent night of song tunes and fun. See you on 7 Jan 2009.
