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!

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...

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...)

Thanks for a good night last night, not many there but some great songs and singing.
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.

Thanks Dennis, it was good to see you - and hear your songs - on Tuesday. But what a pity that the turnout was well down on previous months.
Sadly, my voice hasn't lasted well since the session...

Meanwhile it would be good to see some more singers at December's Just Voices session, which will be held in the usual place on Tuesday 30th. The room is booked for the first half of 2015.

Pass the word..
