I'm playing some blues and bluegrass songs on the Golden Hinde ship on the South Bank in London tomorrow night, Friday Aug 3rd

Also playing are:

The Hogeyed Men, a crew of shanty singers from London.

The Raven, an Anglo-Australian folk duo, songs set to guitar and flute. You may well know them.

I wish I could be there. Best of luck.

Did you ever choose an old song for this gig? I didn't know you did blues and bluegrass. How about 'The Lily of Arkansas?" It's not from 1580, but it's nautical.

I like the tune used by Dave Para and Cathy Barton, if you can find it.

No doubt Matt got shanghaied and is now waking up with an aching head somewhat west of the Azores.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble, lurking in Chicago

It was a really fun night. I can recommend any London-based folkies getting in touch with Woody Newman, who organises the night. (He's the ship's caretaker.)

Talking of being shanghaied, the audience is kind of a captive audience, because the ship is in quite a touristy area. So we played to an audience of friends and folkies, but also to a lot of random tourists and after-work Friday-night drinkers who only came in because it was a cheap place to have a drink, away from all the packed pubs.

Because you're surrounded by wood, acoustic instruments sound good.

I didn't have time to learn any proper old songs unfortunately. But I played a couple of sea-related songs. "Let the Mermaids Flirt With Me" (Mississippi John Hurt). And also "New York Trader", from the Penguin book of English folk songs.

(by "proper old songs" above, I meant the songs others kindly suggested in a different thread. They're on the list to learn for another time)

Excellent!

So, do you do Sharp's next Tuesday evening?

Haven't been to Sharp's since the launch of the new Penguin folk song book – which was another great evening.

I'm not a regular there by a long way - I've only been 3 times in total. I like the atmosphere there though. Are you coming over to the UK or something?
