Hi all,

I realised the other day that the excellent English music sessions at Swanage had been moved from Frida/Saturday evening to Saturday/Sunday lunchtime. This is a bit of a disaster for us, as well I guess for a lot of other musicians who play for Morris at this very Morris heavy festival. So I wrote to the organisers. The reply I got was so positive that I aksed them if they would like me to repost it on Mudcat for them. They would, so here it is:-

Good News!

We have arranged evening English Music sessions in the marquee in the back garden of the Red Lion for this year - Fri & Sat - under cover! Do not confuse this with the singers in the small bar!
 
Next year the English sessions will be based at the Black Swan! Alyson is delighted to host a session and will make everyone welcome there, but she already has music booked for this year.
 
We have had problems this year due to a change of management/ownership at the Crow's Nest and it is now a 'gastro pub' and has moved up-market.
 
Please pass on this information to those you know. It is listed on the website now.

Kathy

So I replied: That is most welcome news. Don't worry, I wouldn't dream of upsetting the singers in the small bar - Kitty might write a song about me!

Chris

Thanks Chris (and Kathy)for the clarification - someone at the Wail in Verwood this weekend said they'd heard that the singing sessions at the Red Lion would be lunchtime only, not evenings!

Kitty
PS You and Anne are welcome to come in for a sing, if you fancy a break from playing!

Singing at the Red Lion is officially lunch times and evenings but tends to go on for as long as there are singers and Kitty & Derek's voices hold up :)

The change of attitude at the Crow's nest knocked us for 6 andleft us scrabbling rather late in the day.
I do hope you find the marquee at the Red Lion ok for this year.

I've also put this out on the Radway Reunion mailing list, so we've probably reached a good proportion of the musicians who'll be affected by this. Hats off to the organisers for doing their best to look after us!

Cheers,

Chris

Don't think I've been in the Crow's Nest since it was the Mostyn - 1976 or so. A dreadful pub back then. OK to get to if you start from that side of the town. Red Lion is so much easier to get to and has decent beer.
