Chris "Yorkie" Bartram sends the following message:-

Really looking forward to next week's "mini-tour" of the deep South with Messrs Brookes and Weatherall. We're at The Royal Oak, Lewes on Thursday 18th; The Musical Traditions Club, Foley Street, London on Friday 19th and The Kit and Cutter, Deptford on Saturday 20th. Come and see us - "Bartram, Brookes and Weatherall".

We're looking forward to seeing lots of friendly faces at the Royal Oak. I hope they might include Bob Lewis who I haven't seen for far too long; Shirley Collins who liked my singing at Festival at the Edge a few years ago and various Young Coppers with whom I shared digs at Whitby. Ee, what a line-up of "floor spots" that would be!!

To which I replied:-
Floor spots? Two weeks ago we had Peta Webb & Ken Hall, Ben Paley, Laura Hockenhull, Dave Arthur & Dan Stewart from Rattle on the Stovepipe, Rosie Davis and a host of other fine singers... many did not get a chance to sing. I asked Ben Copper to sing and his reply was something like "No Chance - not with the standard as high as this."

Sure wish I could be there for that. I met Chris when I was in Stroud last October and was very taken with his singing, so much so that I ordered his CD by airmail once I got back home to the states. Of course, it would have been much easier to just get one from him in person, but then he'd have needed to mention that there was such a thing! I found it online.

Have a great night and maybe, Vic, you'll post a video clip or two on Facebook after the fact, as you did for the Jez Lowe show...

You can hear one song by B.B. & W. and a tremendous solo instrumental from Tony Weatherall at
