Subject: New Singers' Session - Birstall (Yorks.)
From: MoorleyMan
Date: 20 Feb 14 - 06:07 PM

Starting on Tuesday 25th February 2014 and then on the last Tuesday of each month: "Just Voices", a new singaround/session for unaccompanied singers only (no instruments).
Venue: The Black Bull Inn, Kirkgate, Birstall, West Yorks. WF17 9PB (UK), in upstairs function room with good acoustics. Friendly and welcoming pub, good beer.
Starts 8 pm prompt. Free admission.

To quote the flyer:
"The aim of this friendly singaround/session is the sharing of good songs: whether they be traditional or contemporary; rousing chorus songs and harmonies; or solo ballads". (This might also include the occasional monologue or poem, I understand.... )

And before any musicians get the chance to be offended - this is the first gathering to cater specifically for unaccompanied singers that I can recall in the Yorkshire area, in quite some time (it's a good ten years since the popular and long-lived Otley Red Lion singers' session folded).
After all, there are plenty of sessions for musicians only, so why not one for singers only, just for a change?

As well as singer-participants, listeners (audience) are also most welcome.

Come and give it a try!

Looking forward to seeing you there Joe. You're always most welcome.

Now Guest, no need to be so negative - there's no shame in this new venture, it's just an honest attempt to plug a gap in the scene, whoever else is involved. Hey, give it a chance - it might just work...

Refresh and reiterate - all singers welcome, should be a good night!

First night went well, with a decent and appreciative turnout, 43 songs were sung in total, and a very enjoyable time was had by all.
Looking forward to seeing the absentees next month all being well.

Sorry you didn't make it Ray.
I believe the tally was that eight singers sang 5 songs apiece, and one sang 3.
Luckily no memory feat was required, as Maureen's a keen statistician and kept a record of the total!

It depends how you define " a session" Yorkie

According to the Oxford English Dictionary a session is - A period devoted to a particular activity: - so this activity is , in my view, correctly defined.

The thing is most folkies seem to regard a session as an instrumentalists only event and as a singer I tend to aviod them as I believe do many others so I think it is always a good idea to specify the type if event as Dave does.

Thanks for clarifying and confirming the terminology, folks.

The March session was sparser-attended than the February one, but we welcomed a trio from Sheffield who made some cracking contributions to the night.

Looking forward to the next session, scheduled for Tuesday 29th April.
Hope you make it, Joe (yes, your card has been marked!), it's always great to see and hear you my friend! (Well, you did ask me to post this to remind you...)

Hi Dave

I got tied up last month and was in Australia month before. At this moment, I certainly intend to intend on the 29th of this month.
Thanks for your good wishes on Mudcat. I certainly hope to see you at Wath sometime in the future.
I intend to post each week regarding the Wath club meetings.

With regards to the query regarding Eric Bogle singing Stan Rogers Lock Keeper, it is on his CD "At This Stage" Disc 1. This CD has introductions to each song which you can play separately or omit, once you have heard them a few times, a good idea, Eric states why he sings this song.

A rather poor turnout for this month's session, due to various illnesses and holidays - but those who did attend experienced a nice relaxed evening trying out new songs and sharing interpretive insights in convivial company.

Unfortunately, we learned of some further medical issues, which combined with other known holiday commitments, will mean that AUGUST's session will have to be CANCELLED. Apologies for this, but we have no alternative.

Just Voices will, however, definitely resume in SEPTEMBER, on Tuesday 29th.

Stamford Bridge sessions will now be Saturdays 28th November, 30th January and 27th February from around 7.30 at the Cricket Pavilion, Low Catton Rd. Stamford Bridge. It is a short season this year as Easter is early. We are also hosting sessions at the Wenlock Arms, Wheldrake on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 4.00pm - 7.00pm, the next few will be 11th October, 8th November and 13th December. We will see how well it is supported and review it in the New Year. All singers and acoustic musicians welcome at both sessions. The Wenlock Arms does a great carvery on Sunday afternoons so you can eat before you sing!

It's a great room to sing in and a very good opportunity to keep your voice in trim and sing the songs that may not get heard too often elsewhere. A group of likeminded people sharing songs, works for me. Leave the guitar at home and give it a try.

Here's some good-ish news:

I've had a phone conversation with the new manager at our venue (the Black Bull). He tells me that his tenure is "for the foreseeable future", and that our room booking dates will be honoured.

So it's a case of "as we were", then, with the 2016 calendar still reading as follows:

Every last-Tuesday-of-the-month – i.e. 26th April; 31st May;       28th June; 26th July; 30th August; 27th September; 25th October; 29th November…   

… until December, when we plan to meet on the penultimate Tuesday (20th) instead.

We will, naturally, be continuing to put out feelers for a potential "Plan B" should the situation change again suddenly!

Thanks for bearing with us, and hoping to see you soon.

Bad news - Just Voices is now without a venue.

I arrived there yesterday evening for the monthly Drovers club night to find the Black Bull closed and boarded up, with no information on the door. Needless to say, there had been no prior warning of this.
I shall endeavour to find out what is happening and seek a replacement venue (even a temporary one) as a matter of urgency.
Watch this space...

Latest news:
We are monitoring the Black Bull situation closely, in case the pub suddenly reopens!!
However, on the assumption that this is unlikely, we have sought and found a replacement venue, which will be used on a trial basis for the session on 28th June.
It's THE GARDEN GATE in Hunslet, south Leeds (Whitfield Place, LS10 2QB).
The landlady has kindly granted use of the Rampton Room therein, a separate, smallish snug room with a closeable door.
Beers are reportedly good.
We will aim to start prompt at 8pm as usual, in order to keep to an 11 pm finish.
Access from motorway network is good, with bus routes also serving the A639. There's a quite large car parking area within two minutes' walk.
We'll need a good turnout in order to assess the longer-term suitability of this venue - so hoping to see you there!

For those interested, the first session at our new venue (The Garden Gate in Hunslet) was most encouraging. A smaller turnout than expected, quite possibly due to the atrocious weather (a very rainy night indeed), but this was made up for by the friendly atmosphere and select attendance. The venue is very accommodating, the room itself is good for singing, and those present approved of the venue, so (unless we get any good news re the Black Bull reopening!) the plan is to use the new venue again for July's session (on 26th).
Hope to see you there, Dennis - as well as others who were unable to make June's session.

It appears from some responses received that the new venue is not as convenient for all. It's still quite a distance for me too - but...
It is a good (separate) room in a good hostelry, with a closeable door and good acoustics - and the management is supportive. All of which counts for quite a lot in this day and age.
So, in the absence of any better options, for the time being the session will continue to be held at the Garden Gate. I'll keep you informed of any developments or changes.

Well it was a quiet session in terms of numbers, but one of the best yet in terms of quality of songs and singing. And especially good to welcome two new faces who we hope will become regular attendees.
But also rather sad to find several of our erstwhile stalwarts absent without explanation - could it be the enforced change of venue? (Thanks to those who sent their justified apologies, but concerned not to hear from others.)
Thanks to all who turned up and shared their songs and made this month's session so memorable.

It was a brilliant session last night, with a welcome first-time visit from Zoe (all the way from Manchester) and the second visit of trio New Pippin Fancy (from Sheffield), also a couple more new faces. But many of our good local singers have been conspicuously absent since the venue change, which puzzles me since it's a fantastic room to sing in, the acoustics are wonderful, and the pub itself is a Grade-2 listed building - and it's not difficult to get to - and all feedback received emphasises the session's welcoming atmosphere.
Anyway, last night gave us some great singing and plenty of interesting songs, so let's spread the word and look forward to October's instalment, on Tuesday 25th.

The opportunity for singers to get together and sing/harmonies/practice songs old and new is getting less for many reason

Kelham Island Tavern 4 Sunday attracts many younger singer and is a joy!

Lincoln has a regular Jut Voices too (been once!)

Well, there was no need to brave the weather - just one brief hailstorm.
But what else could've kept folks away??
Once again it was a small but loyal turnout (but serious thanks to all, especially Nick who'd travelled across from deepest Lancashire to be with us).
We shared half a dozen songs apiece, ranging from originals to good old Trad and Anon and Scottish Gaelic, Keith Marsden, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Peggy Seeger, the Byrds, Tom Waits, Jake Thackray, Eric Bogle, James Taylor, Stuart Marson, Dave Moss, Franz Schubert ... and even Johnny Preston!
And there was still plenty of time for all the craic, info, chat and banter in between...

A really nice relaxed friendly session last night, contributed by a small but select grouping - and interestingly, the majority of the singers were ladies on this occasion. A great range of songs, ranging from Scottish Gaelic to English trad, 40s standards and 60s r'n'r to Americana, with plenty of choice contemporary folk classics. Looking forward to the return of some of our absentees next month (31st). Keep singin'!

We have a "Just Voices" session too, at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, on Burton Road in Lincoln LN1 3LY. It's a monthly unaccompanied singaround on the fourth Saturday afternoon, from 1pm to 3pm. Perhaps you could have a bus trip sometime? Next one tomorrow!

Great idea, Rozza - but it would be rather more than a bus trip - either a
train and two or three buses (minimum) or three trains and a bus and/or a long walk at each end. And even if I travelled by car I'd not make it across in less than two hours, although at least it's not bang in the middle of the city and parking would be easier even on a Saturday... But if I ever find myself in the Lincoln area then sure I'll make the effort to be there! I wish you well with your session.
You're still welcome at Hunslet, but I suspect you'd have a similar problem with the journey.
Slight thread creep here - we thought about making ours an afternoon sing, but found it impossible to get a suitable venue, even casting the net geographically wider.

While I'm posting, time to REFRESH for this coming Tuesday at Hunslet!

Twas a really superb night - best for a while - with attendees (appropriately for Hallowe'en!) numbering 13 (spooky...).
Everyone got into the spirit of things, you might say!

Hoping this might tempt some more returnees next month?

Special thanks to those travelling a long distance - Nick Dow, John & Vic, and Lynne & David - but thanks to everyone else too for their loyal support of our session.

See you again on 28th November.

Really looking forward to our next session, which is less than a week away now - it's next Tuesday, 28th November.

And PS - don't forget, the December JV date (19th) will be one week earlier than usual due to Boxing Day.

Thanks for letting us know Nick, and hope Mally's hospital trip went well.

It was a really good session, though a touch more sparsely attended (especially nice to see John and Vic up from Sheffield), but we still got round the room five times with plenty of relaxed craic.

Next time will be 19th December - brought forward to avoid the Boxing Day clash. Let's see some of our old friends return - we miss you!

Come all ye with your seasonal delights - songs, carols, assorted Xmastide junketings - or else play bah humbug, it's your choice. The only stipulation is to enjoy a good time and share the good music and good craic for the last time this year. Let's make it a good one!
See you there!

Thanks to all who sang last night and made it a great session, including our longer-distance travellers from Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Sheffield - thanks Nick, John & Vic, Rob - and regular supporters Linn, Cath and Tom.
But where are all the rest of our fine local singers? Hibernating?...

Next month's session is on 27th February.

Just your monthly reminder that this month's session will still take place at the Garden Gate on TUESDAY 27TH FEBRUARY as booked.

Even the current spate of roadworks involving the overnight closure of the M621 motorway shouldn't put you off coming to Hunslet for a good sing!

Come all ye!

Weather forecast's not looking good for Tuesday, but I'm hopeful the snow won't settle enough to prevent us going ahead.
But do keep an eye on this thread just in case - and if you're on the mailout list keep an eye on your emailbox.
Fingers crossed...

The heavy overnight snow has settled, and more is forecast for this afternoon/evening, so I think the most sensible course is to cancel tonight's session, particularly considering those who might be travelling some distance or from equally snowbound regions.
Sorry for the short notice...
Oh well, first time in 4 years, not a bad average I guess!

Thanks for letting us know Nick. We missed you!

It was another quietish session, but thanks to our loyal band of supporters (and to the Durbervilles for the plug).

Even so, I'd really like to know what's happened to our enthusiastic stalwarts from the Black Bull days, who seem to have dropped off the map since we moved to Hunslet.

Well, it's over again for another month, and I am sad to report that it was a very poor turnout last night.
Thanks to Linn, Tom and Barbara for their loyal support and excellent contributions - you made the night worth while.
And OK, we received some legit apologies from other valued supporters (flat tyre, booked gig, impossible throat), but the weirdest thing is, no response whatsoever from almost everyone else on the mailing list. Well, maybe 24th seemed "the wrong" date, but it WAS the last Tuesday, honest! (30 days hath Aoril...)
So we'll try again - on 29th May - and let's hope for a better turnout, I could say "use it or lose it"!

Thanks for letting us know Nick, hope you have a successful time down south, and hope you can make it in June - that date should still go ahead as far as I know. But as you yourself know, just having a good idea can so often not work out, however scrupulously you prepare and check things out beforehand!
