You nearly had me though slow tyre leak is a worry. (Thorn, new tyre next week) Looked online for places to stay+taxi. Thought train. B&B near station said £31. Robots were having a laugh, was really £130. Didn't actually drive anywhere that night. Below Zero.
Great pub.

Well we broke all records with this month's Just Voices session - a nil attendance! I had received several apologies for absence in advance, various legitimate reasons for not being able to make it this month, but no other replies in response to my usual friendly reminder (I had requested advisement). So where is everybody???

I just can't believe that none of the many singers in Yorkshire are interested any longer.
And pace Nick, I've had no expressions of interest in moving back to the Black Bull even if it were an option. I know of only one erstwhile attendee for whom the venue was more convenient.

I really do need some support and guarantees of interest and attendance if the session is to continue past the next three months which are currently advertised widely in the folk magazines and elsewhere.

Thanks for your valuable input, Nick, I was hoping you would email me!
I am collating responses to the questions and issues raised - one of which is Birstall. I am actively exploring this option, but so far have met with surprisingly little support for a relocation back to Birstall even if it were possible on either of those alternative nights. Also it needs a proper recce to the BB first - so is there anyone better placed geographically than I am who could do that, I wonder?

Yes Jimmy, good to hear from you after all this time, and many thanks for your constructive comments and good wishes.

Sure, I am (and always have been) aware of the continuing and well established Abbey session, although I've not been for awhile due to a combination of travel problems (it's actually pretty awkward of access from this side of the bridge!) and health issues (and I don't just mean old age!..).

But there are two important points in your argument.
First, when Just Voices was started (in 2014), every effort was made to AVOID a clash with any specific, known clubs or sessions that were any LESS regular than weekly, and views were sought from likely attendees on that score.
Since the Abbey is weekly and Just Voices is only monthly, then, I would kindof expect that anyone interested and able to travel to Hunslet would make it to Just Voices (instead of the Abbey, say) on just that monthly - occasional - basis. I would have done so in that situation if I were seeking a change, at least sometimes. Variety being the spice of life etc... But that doesn't seem to have happened - and that's what puzzles me. If I wished, taken over a typical month, I could go to four or five different sessions/clubs on a Tuesday - but inevitably things like bad weather, travel disruption etc get in the way and spoil plans and it's not always possible to change one's arrangements or routes at the last minute!

Second, you suggest a Wednesday as an alternative slot for Just Voices that you imply would be preferred by Abbey regulars who may well venture along. I agree, there are fewer clubs and sessions on a Wednesday hereabouts, but our current Just Voices venue already hosts a session on that night (that was another reason for our taking the Tuesday option when we were forced to move from Birstall when the pub closed down).

Having said all that, it would be good to "CUJimmy" at Just Voices, you would be very welcome to come and share your songs.

MM

David I wonder if you are aware of the clash with a very well established and well attended and very very good singing session at The Abbey Inn in Newlay every Tuesday evening. It is my personal favourite evening. I know your evening is for Un-accompanied singing, and Im sure a lot of people would enjoy that, but I feel that some of the people who attend the Abbey on Tuesday evenings may well venture along if it was ie on a Wednesday. The recent winter weather may have had a negative effect as well of course, and it seems a shame because I can see you have put a lot of patience and effort in to keep it going. Hope it picks up a bit now in the New Year.

Well it didn't make any difference changing the date to ensure the show goes on - the downward trend of the past four months has continued, with only two fellow-singers at last night's session.
This makes no sense - and with no feedback from the previously enthusiastic absentees I'm forced to conclude that it might be the time to call it a day. It would be good to get some response before I have to make that decision, however, so now's the time to get in touch - please!

Next month's will be on the third Tuesday - 21st January - due to a clash of commitments.

Many thanks to Lynne and Tom for their loyalty and continued support of our session.
Next month's is earlier due to Xmas festivities - which means 17th December.

I enjoyed the once I've been and the Garden Gate is a wonderful almost preserved pub. Worth a visit for its own sake. (They were going to knock it down last century but campaigners saved it)
Garden Gate NB this is a zombie website. Just see the pics, writeup out of date.
Alas well over an hour of maybe wet motorway for me but do go if you're anywhere near Leeds and better still know your way round.

But thanks to Linn, instead of a singaround we had a highly enjoyable workshop of first-world-war songs and whaling songs!
Which just goes to prove, every session of Just Voices is different, with a great mix of songs. Why not come and try us?
Next session (if we survive) will be 26th November.

Sad to report, our lowest ever turnout last night - just three singers in total, and two listeners. We still had a great time, but can't fathom why or how everyone else seems to have gone to ground.
The next session is October 29th, and I guess we'll carry on as booked till end of year, but it's getting to be too erratic and more of a matter for concern now.

Another month, another session - and another sparse turnout.

Kind apologies were received from those booked at Chippenham Folk Festival and also our good friend from the north-east, but the mailbox was otherwise silent.

Big thanks, then, to our loyal attendees, Lynne and Barbara especially, for their support and great singing. A nice relaxed sing was had by us all, and plenty of good songs were sung. However...

Next month's will be on 25th June, although the way things are going the session may well be becoming unsustainable and I am almost minded to cancel.
