Hopefully there'll be a few people in the Ship Victory on Tuesday night for a singaround/session, then on Wednesday night, Mr Happy has his session across the river in the Carlton in Handbridge.

Chester songs at twilight
In the Victory
Guitars backing voices,
Quite harmoniously

Thanks to re-al a-le
Words are often wrong.
And at 'chucking-out-time'
"Just one more song",
"Please, just one more song"

'Can you start finishing now!'

Hi, Mr Happy - looks like we'll be passing your way on Wednesday night; I trust you might accomodate some rough fiddle, banjo & hollerin' as part of your Come All Ye?

I remember playing at the Crossed Foxes FC in Chester, but that was many many years ago.

My wife is from Handbridge, although she left many years ago. Her nan & grandad lived in a Duke's house by the water tower. I recall the Ship Inn, if that's the one by the bridge. Last time I went to a Chester folk club, it was in a pub opposite the train station - but that was also many years ago.....

Could it have been on the Crosville C1?

L in C#
But originally from Ellesmere Port and made the BDs Club at The CFs a couple of times and Jones's Ale many times in number of pubs

GUEST,Suibhne Astray,

'I trust you might accomodate some rough fiddle, banjo & hollerin' as part of your Come All Ye?'


Absolutely!!

You'll be very welcome & in good company of at least 4 fiddlers, 2 banjos, 2 flutes, whistles, gob irons, coupla mandolins, a plethora of guitars, squeezeboxes of various shapes, & an esoteric mix of siners!

Free Butties & Mystery Guest every week!

You need to be there for around 830pm to ensure getting a good seat as it can get packed later.

Looking forward meeting you

Yeah, Les I think you could be right, could well have been the Crosville.. the last one must have left somewhere around 10:45 or 11:00. Just after last orders!! That would get down to B'head around 11:45.

As Aye,

Phil.

.....& as Dave McKenzie mentioned at Mr Happy's sesh last night, seems you may've beaten a hasty retreat from the Ship Victory sesh the night before.

However, if you're still in Chester tonight, the Gardeners Arms sesh will be on from around 9pm.

Sorry you missed us

Well, we rolled into the Carlton around 7.45 after a very gruelling day on top of various ailments; we enjoyed the fine hospitality on offer, the free Wi-Fi, and a very fruity pint, but by 8.30 were zonking out, so we opted for a night in at our Travelodge at Northop Hall where I fell asleep during The Apprentice. Brighter today though; amazing weather in which to enjoy your amazing city and its many and varied attractions, including THIS which is a real point of pilgrimage!

Rest assured, we'll be back!

Like I said over on the Bellamy thread, I got into Randolph Caldecott via PB's The Fox Jumps Over The Parson's Gate album, the cover of which is based on that of RC's wee book of the same name which, as PB points out in the notes, furnished him with the song. I reunited the two in a wee YouTube film (HERE) using an online source, but have since bought the original - and many others which, surprisingly, aren't going to set you back that much...

Also in Chester yesterday a rake around the cathgedral to reacqaint myself with a few old friends including a Foliate Osama who resides amongst the fine medieval green men sculpture in the cloister. I actually had a picture of him in Fortean Times a few years ago, but nothing like as clear as this one.
