I was some what upset last Monday in regards to be pushed out of my seat and table by a key board player who rearranges the furniture around me to suit himself blocking me in to a tight corner whwre I coulod hardly bloody move?

later on in the night he went out side and drunk my pint and replaced with a half pint.

Can I educate. If you drink some ones pint you replace it with a pint.

I hate going off on one because it upsets the athmosphere and puts folk in a sullen mood and spoils the night.

Keyboard players (not all of them) BARGE in and take over places where folk are already seated blocking them in so they cannot get to the bar the toilets or anywhere else fore that matter with out moving chairs and climbinbg about which is a right bloody Palava
I got fed up in the end and went out side. If it happens again thou8gh I will not be so tolerent.
Kind regards to all Pierre,

I went to Blackheath this evening and must admit it was one of the most enjoyable nights I have had there. A lot of good acts. There was a keyboard player but he was very tasteful and invited to join in along with some of the acts including Simon and Dave K. A performer from Scotland Ken Caird was excellent particularly with the keyboard playing along with him. There were a lot of other acts who performed solo. However, I totally agree with Girl Friday - loud synthetic music should not be invited to play in a more intimate atmosphere such as the Seven Stars.

Re the above posting from woodeneye: I have never been to Blackheath Folk Club, but I hear it has P.A. to bring the sound up above the general noise level. I suppose it's why the keyboarders thought they would turn up there. Honestly though, do they need to be mob handed?
My attitude would be the same. You can't go disrupting the furniture, and you shouldn't be playing loud synthetic music in a Folk Club situation like the Seven Stars. I hope that the action that I have taken this morning returns the session to what it was, which was always a mixture of genres, but with the emphasis on Folk. Sometimes it's hard to see where the line is. Dylan / Denver/ Ray Davis/ Woody Guthrie etc are performed in most of our local clubs, and often by the people who play at Crayside.

You have to be hard, sometimes - at Blackheath (when I was running it) I banned Keyboards altogether. This was due to several factors including:

1) Space taken up - people were bringing in FULL sized keyboards/stands aand amps then proceeding to re-arrange furniture to accomodate. With little or no regard as to the seating arrangements of other musicians and the audience!

2) Loud and inappropriate (for a folk/acoustic session)
3) volume drowning out others
4) Artificial Drums/percusion
5) Other synthesised sounds/backing
6) Complaints from other club attedees
7) Complaints from pub staff

I made an announcement and explained why. People were happy at the time, as most of the keyboarders played other instruments as well. I did state that exceptions would be made in special cases and by prior arrangement only.

This worked fine for the year or so that I was MCing!

Mind you since I left that club I've heard that the keyboarders have returned!

I tried...."Banks of the Sweet Primroses" is folk in almost anybody's book, though I cocked up a verse (again! One day I'll do a song all the way through without cocking something up). And "John Condon", though fairly recent, is folky in style, and done unaccompanied, though I wish my voice had been a bit better. I won't say anything about "Waiting For Pete Doherty To Die"!

It was a strange one tonight, with people drifting off into the other bar or outside for much longer periods than they did last week. There almost seemed to be a lack of respect from some people for what others were doing when they themselves weren't performing. Maybe more people than Raffles felt that some of the music was getting a bit far away from where it should have been.

A slightly smaller turnout tonight - no doubt due to the holiday season. When we did get some folk music, it was very well performed. We have always gone with the flow with this club, but if the flow is going too far away from folk then it isn't what we envisaged. I'll email you my thoughts Raff

I must say Rob, that having the odd accordion accompaniment would be absolutely welcome at Seven Stars, as would a melodeon or fiddle player.
Quite why there are so few in our area is beyond me. The Tonbridge area is well served for traditional singers and players, and it's great. We've sung at The Beacon, and Nellies. Unfortunately all three clubs meet on a Monday.It would be great to have Singer Of Songs join us one evening.

I'm not bothered one way or the other about people joining in. I was just commentng above that at the Beacon session I go to it's not automatic. At High Brooms, it varies according to the song. I was expecting joining in at Seven Stars, so wasn't worried.

It sounded a little odd doing "Breakfast Blues" though, as I had 2 turnarounds I was using, one for the intro and first 2 verses, and a different one at the end. Someone to my left was playing a turnaround that sounded to "clash" a bit with mine. Didn't put me off...the combined turnarounds just sounded a bit muddled.

"Man of Kent" I simply buggered up, as I'd learned Stuart Pendrill's version and then heard Bob K do the original. The two versions were merging in my head as I played, and I kept losing the "thread". I heard Trevor suggest I'd be better "on my own" as I played, but it wasn't the joining in that messed me up, it was having 2 versions of the song in my head!!!

Sue,

Thanks VERY much, that'll be brilliant.

The "Seven Stars" session is very different from the others I go to. Not so much in breadth of music, as the others cover everything from unaccompanied trad songs to relatively modern rock, too.

It's difficult to put my finger on. I can't say "more relaxed" exactly, because the other sessions are relaxed. Probably the biggest difference is the balance.

The High Brooms session always tends to have an accordian or two present, plus several concertinas, which gives a very different sound to the "joiny-in" songs. There's also more unaccompanied stuff...at least 3 people, sometimes 5, who sing unaccompanied.

The Beacon session is smaller scale...rarely more than 10 people, and with most of the guitarists being *frighteningly* accomplished. They're very encouraging, but I hate just "chord bashing" there when the others play very complex stuff. There's not much of a tradition of joining in there...the performer generally has to encourage the others to join in with choruses or instruments, otherwise it's a solo or duo effort. Mind you, with 2 or 3 duos there, you can get a chance to do 7 or 8 songs (though I usually pass on the first couple of rounds until I've drunk enough to overcome the nerves :-) )

It's definitely a session I'll try to get to semi-regularly.

Early request here:

I plan to come along next Monday (16th Aug). The local cab back to Orpington station was reasonable last week, but if I can avoid a black cab from the station to the Seven Stars next week by imposing on someone for a lift, I'll keep whoever picks me up in beers or other drink of choice for the evening.

I plan on catching the train that'll get me into Orpington at 1938 but am happy to wait around if that's too early for anyone. Be bringing a guitar AND octave mandolin this time and hope to make a better fist of things than I did last time.

What a palarva. It seems that Pierre is always losing something, somewhere, but having to dig up his garden is surely the most spectacular aprez folk event ever. We are hoping to get to The Stars for lunch today, but having to wait on a delivery that hasn't arrived yet. I can phone Mick and enquire after your keys, if we don't get there, but enquiries should be made soon, before he goes on holiday. I'm assured by Mick that the managers will justlet us get on with it, so if the night next week is half as good as last night, it'll be great.
It was really hard work at our prior venue, and Leopards, Pete and Ian were sung out every week! This is so much easier, and runs itself. A big thankyou to you all, and a big Leopard hug! Off now to get a baboon burger.

A excellent night in the pub with great singers/players I throughly enjoyed myself but I clearly have not mastered Masters of War so I will continue at it and have another go next Monday.

Unfortunately I lost my keys Monday night and I think I left them in the pub so if anyone has found them please keep hold of them untill next week.

When I got home I had to climb over a 6ft back garden gate and dig up my spare set of keys that I bury in my garden so if I lose my keys at least I have a spare pair so I can gain entry to my house.
I have never had to do it though in the dead of night half pissed crawling around untill I found them.
Another Bloody Palava?
Any well done everyone see you all next week?

If there's no-one available for a lift (I certainly don't want anyone to go out of their way...just if anyone's passing) then I'll treat myself to a cab. It'll only be the once! Next time I'll drive or be driven.

Hi Rob

we'll be delighted to have you. If you have no luck with the lift, the 51 bus goes direct from outside the station to 100 yards up from the pub - the stop is Foots Cray Post Office - that'll be just 2 quid and I'm sure would get you there easily by 8.30

The 51 would also take you back if needed but if you stay to the end you wouldn't get the 2329

see you tomorrow

Right, I'm going to try and make it tomorrow night (Monday 9th Aug)!

I'm going to try and get the 1906 train from Tunbridge Wells arriving Orpington 1938.

Is there anyone who may be passing near Orpingtonstation around that time who could give me a lift? That's me, a guitar and possibly an octave mandolin. I may not play or sing much for a first visit, but will bring instruments to give myself an option if the mood takes me.

Don't worry if there isn't...I'll grab a cab or something. I've been saving around £60 a week in diesel for the last 6 weeks so can splash out one time if necessary!

For going back, would the 2329 from Orpington allow me to stay to the end and still catch it? There's a larter one if necessary.
