I know that this is a worldwide site and what most of us do in small parts of the world is unimportant but we have used Mudcat to share information and have recieved many good wishes and many passers-by have joined us for Songs and Tunes at The Beech.

Songs and Tunes at The Beech

But we have fallen to one of the oldest traditions in Folk Music - we found a really good pub, gathered a brilliant collection of musicians and friends, played good music for years - then got asked to leave for no reason that makes sense to us.

We are not taking it personally or even collectively - The Monday Irish, The Tuesday Cajun Session and the 'Comedy' Night have also been asked to go.

However we have been made most welcome at The Dulcimer Bar:

The Dulcimer Bar

It's in the middle of Chotlon cum Hardy, its a very smart bar, the acoustics are good and the beer is excellent and even cheaper than that at The Beech and the staff are brilliant.

All details on our weby:

Which is still called Folk at The Beech - until we get to the bottom of changing

We still sing songs mostly but not exclusively on 1st & 3rd Tuesdays now and play tunes on 2nd & 4th Tuesdays because the Dulcimer is busy on Wednesdays.

We trust that people who have joined us previously will continue to do so and new friends will make the trek.

Thanks for all good wishes

Les pp The Beech Band

What's the font you use for the body text on your site? Is it a dyslexia-friendly one or something? I haven't seen anything like it before.

Good luck with the new venue, anyway.

Good luck in your new home. Your website still has the Beech on the 'What's On' page.

Might we see some of you at Chester Festival, in Kelsall over the bank holiday weekend. Tuneworks are doing beginners and Improvers sessions + lots more as always.

I don't mind the cellar so much Fred as long as they throw a fish head down once or twice a day.

I wasn't thinking of you in the cellar, Keith, so much as a certain person who goes to the Belvedere and puts everybody off by droning and groaning in various keys, none of which have ever been heard before.

BTW., did you know the Belvedere is a grade 2 listed building? Well I can tell you we've got a grade 1 prat in there who thinks he's musical. Nobody else does.

Hi Les - sorry to hear the Beech sessions have gone tits up> My very best wishes for the new venue - I hope continuity rules!

We've recently had a slightly less worrying problem at our Brighton Acoustic Session where the pub landlord "double booked" for the June 2nd slot - and we've had to move elsewhere for the evening. The fact that the guests for the evening are me and my mate Chris Wolferstan only adds to the annoyance! :-)

It's par the course for happenings in pubs. In a way, you can't blame the landlords for screwing you over - they're very often being screwed over themselves! As the Mafia might say, it's business, not personal...

Anyway, good luck to you all.

Thanks Will. You are right Landlords are in a tricky position and I respect their right to do what they think best ............. even if I can't really see why chucking us all out will be a good thing.

Dulcimer is brilliant - on a Tuesday:

Thanks again for all good wishes

We have it all Will - that's why we are so laid back - or maybe a month in France with the caravan helps. The photo is a of a campsite in Crest somewhere just east of the the Rhone near the Ardeche - all good fun - Calais a week on Sunday

cheers
