The regular Bell+Jorrocks old fashioned and traditional music sessions continue on Sunday the 29th November - and once again we'd love to see lots of you on the night!

This month the featured performer is local singer and melodeon and guitar player John Morgan. For those who don't know him, John is a hugely experienced and highly respected local singer of mainly traditional songs with a high and lyrical voice. (I've added a few notes about him below.*) He has just made a new CD and so this month's session will be by way of a launch party. I'm assured there will be cake!

But there's no need to worry that other interests will be left out - there will be plenty of play-along country dance tunes, and sing-along choruses from regulars who often include singers, stepdancers, and fiddle, melodeon and concertina players, including ourselves.

The sessions take place at the Bell & Jorrocks pub at Frittenden, Kent, and start at 8pm and continue until it's time to sing Nellie Dean and say goodnight. They're informal and free, with lots of old fashioned and traditional songs and tunes, and a big emphasis on variety, humour and entertainment generally - if you liked your pub the way it was before the telly and the computer came, this event is for you.

Gavin and Julie Atkin - for information see or ring 07985 522734

*John Morgan has been singing in pubs and clubs since the early sixties, and was a regular singer at The Watersons legendary club in Hull. Returning to Kent he became a well known singer in the south-east, and worked with a range of singers and musicians, and in 1968 even sang on Shirley Collins's seminal album Anthems in Eden.

These days John keeps a fairly low profile, but can still be heard, particularly at Elsie's at Cowden Pound, where he was recently billed as 'Kent's best kept secret'.

I hope no-one will mind my posting this small reminder for folks who like traditional and old fashioned songs and tunes. As I like to say - if you you preferred your pub the way it was before the telly and cheap booze took the life out of it, this is the session for you!
