Subject: A special birthday party for SARA GREY
From: Vic Smith
Date: 23 Jan 10 - 08:56 AM

Now here is something really special.....



Next Thursday will be SARA GREY's 70th birthday and we will be having a special birthday party night for her at the Royal Oak in Lewes. She will be performing with her son Kieron and there will be a lot of other special guests turning up to join in the celebrations. It is very appropriate that this birthday should be celebrated at our club because we gave Sara her first English folk club booking at our club - a mere 40 years ago.

Please be there! If you really can't make it, please send a card, a letter, a message to be read out to her on the night.

Have a look at http://www.myspace.com/royaloakfolklewes where you can hear a track of Sara playing and singing and a Youtube video Sara & Kieron.

The other tracks at that website are of more coming attractions at the Royal Oak:-

Sara Grey & Kieron Means - "Lazy John" - (January 28th)
Martyn Wyndham Read & Iris Bishop - "The Foggy Dew" - (February 4th)
Chris Bartram, Neil Brookes & Tony Weatherall - "Barleycorn" - (February 18th)
Tony Weatherall [as part of Bartram. Brookes & Weatherall]- "The Woolsack - Oh What A Row - Reel" - (February 18th)
Mat Green & Andy Turner - "Quicksteps" - (March 4th)
Tim Van Eyken - "Barleycorn" - (March 11th)
Chris Parkinson [with Martin Carthy & Norma Waterson] - "Scotch Measure/Mount Hills" - (March 18th)
Norma Waterson [with Martin Carthy & Chris Parkinson] - "Sheepcrook & Black Dog" - (March 18th)
Martin Carthy [with Norma Waterson & Chris Parkinson] - "Georgie" - (March 18th)
Rosie Davis [with Joe Locker & Bob Winquist] - "My Blue Heart" - (April 15th)


and there are Youtube videos by :-


SARA GREY & KIERON MEANS January 28th
MARTYN WYNDHAM READ & IRIS BISHOP February 4th
JEZ LOWE February 11th
TIM VAN EYKEN March 11th
MARTIN CARTHY March 18th
NORMA WATERSON March 18th
JIM MacFARLAND March 25th
ROSIE DAVIS JOE LOCKER & BOB WINQUIST April 15th
JEFF WARNER May 20th
CHRIS FOSTER June 17th

Too far for us to come but please wish Sara a happy birthday and we're looking forward to seeing her over here again at some time.

If she ever wants to do a house concert in Maine we would love to have her.

Wish I could be there, but will have to wait for her March tour through Arkansas. I think she also has some North Carolina and Tennessee dates on that tour as well. Please wish her a happy birthday from Arkansas. I hope you have a good crowd.

Here's the home page for Folk at the Royal Oak. Vic, am I correct in understanding that the Sara Grey celebration will be Thursday, January 28th, 8 PM, in the upstairs room at the Royal Oak in Station Street, Lewes, East Sussex.

I heard Sara Grey at Whitby several years ago, and really enjoyed her performance.

Sadly, it's a bit far to travel from my present home in Reading after I finish a radio programme at 8.00.
When Sec of the Cumbernauld Folk Club at the Cottage Theatre back in 1970, we booked Sara on her first Scottish tour. Might have been her first Scottish booking.
Will someone please give her a Hi and a 6'7" hug from me

Vic, thanks so much for inviting us all to the birthday party! What I wouldn't give to be able to be there with you all in person; due to that big puddle between here and there, however, I'll have to settle for being at the celebration in spirit.

Please do share much love and best wishes to Sara from her friend Kathy Westra in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. And somebody (or several somebodies) please give that dear young thing a huge birthday hug from me. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR SARA!!!

No, she can't possibly be 70!

Many happy memories of hearing Sara sing, and tell stories, including when she was in the Folk Quiz at Sidmouth and required to speak for a minute without hesitation, repetition or variation on the subject of plucking. Sara talked about turkeys and Thanksgiving - and when she was asked why not about banjos, explained that she frailed the banjo.

Many happy returns for Thursday

Kitty

Well 28th January is not only Sara's birthday, it's the name of a good old Appalachian fiddle tune which you can hear on fiddle and banjo here. When you get the page, click on "Access this item".
Happy birthday Sara - it's been great jamming with you at Gainsborough and elsewhere..

This is all just lovely! With the messages posted here and the the emails that I have received, I have now had over thirty messages for Sara from 8 countries and 3 continents. In addition there have been a pile of cards from individuals and clubs.

All the messages will be printed out and given to her on the night - but keep them coming. There is still over two days left for you to post a message here.

Many happy returns and hope to see you at your gig in Bury St Edmunds on Friday.
