Subject: Lewes Favourites practice sessions move
From: Valmai Goodyear
Date: 15 Dec 08 - 05:29 AM

Dear Everyone,

The Lewes Favourites practice sessions are moving from the Lewes Arms to the Elephant and Castle, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ in January 2009 and to the fourth Tuesday of the month. Our last meeting of 2008 is on Wednesday 17th. December in the smaller upstairs room in the Lewes Arms.

We are moving because the new management at the Lewes Arms wants to charge us £50 for the use of the club-room on a Saturday night for the folk club and £75 for the full day we need for our workshops. We are therefore moving all our traditional music activities to the Elephant and Castle.


'The Lewes Favourites' move to the Elephant & Castle (

and to the fourth Tuesday in the month in January 2009

These are a regular opportunity to practice tunes popular in local English sessions, whatever instrument you play, to whatever standard, and whether or not you read music. It's a chance to identify some of those tunes you recognise when you hear them but can't quite remember, to put the names to familiar tunes, and to play them over until you are sure of them. You can record the sessions. Admission is free.

You can download 180 of the tunes plus 33 recent additions in Noteworthy Composer, ABC and midi form from the Lewes Arms Folk Club website go to Links and then to Lewes Favourites. The 'Lewes Favourites' tune book compiled by Andy Warburton contains background information and pictures as well. It is available from the contacts below or through the website, price £10 plus £1 p&p, by cheque payable to 'Lewes Arms Folk Club' (that's right). A supplement of the additions is available at the sessions.

We meet in the Elephant & Castle club-room, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ from 8.00 p.m. onwards on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
