Subject: BS: Music scenes in London

My 26 year old granddaughter, and 76 year old I, will,be staying at the Principal hotel in London, Oct 13-22. First London visit (from the states). Totally a walking and public transportation event. Where might you suggest, near the Principal, might we find nighttime music scene.   Genre is open as I’m a folkie and she totally is not.    Any other “must see” events happening that week?   Sure do appreciate any suggestions.

    This one fits in Mudcat's music section, so I moved it up above the line. -Joe Offer-

Seems to be near the British Museum. Cecil Sharp House (home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, and the busiest folk venue in London) isn't far away.

Also the Harrison, the Musucal Traditions Club and the Cellar Upstairs are all only a short tube ride away.

C#H is a bit of a trek walking from the British Museum, from Russell Square, catch a tube, and change to the Northern \(black) line to Camden Town, or if it is a nice day, take the canal walk from behind Kings Cross atation to Regents park. Send me a PM with a contact email, and I will send mini-maps of the neighbourhoods where folking takes place. The folk club is (90% cetain sa I have only been there twice) on Tuesdays. Also google (please note there are other search engines - to show I am not advertising) Folk London.

The British Library (as well as the museum) is worth a visit. Although you will not be able to access the reading rooms, there are always interesting exhibitions on (including a free one in the foyer, and a small museum to the side.

Also, let me know if you would like to know about some 'off the beaten track'places to visit. Unfortunately, apart from the usual tourist locations, the city of London is being turned into a high-rise glass monstrosity.

For stopping for 'refreshments' there are still interesting pubs along Fleet Street, Aldwich, and The Strand. There is an interesting gallaried pub next to the Royal Courts of Justice in Fleet Street which I think is called The Banker which used to be the only Branch of the Bank of England.

Actually my recollection is that this is a tricky bus\tube journey, but you might just fancy it.
Though they're amateur the couple of things I've seen have been good and they've been fun.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Crouch End Players

SEA AIRS
(or Poseidon’s Song)

17th – 20th October 2018 

The Moravian Church Hall, 
Priory Road, N8 7HR 

“I’ll sing you a song of the fish of the sea.” 

Doors: 7pm Curtain up: 7:30pm 
Tickets: £9 (Children under 12 £6) 
All tickets for Wednesday 17th October £6 only.

 The Crouch End Players' first show of the new season is an original and heart-warming production, full of familiar songs of love, life and the sea.
Told with humour and energy, Sea Airs is the story of three couples dealing with love and loss in a Cornish fishing community. Played out in 1950's Cornwall and 1980's London, the story is told through drama and song, interwoven with Greek myth and Cornish legend.

With folk songs and sea shanties, as well as some ‘80’s classics, for you to sing along to, this will be a must see for the Autumn.

and their venues page http://www.folklondon.co.uk/venues.html

I would expect something to be on @ C# house. https://www.cecilsharphouse.org/csh-whats-on

very sketchy on Dance. There is a Knees Up Cecil Sharp Fri Monthly and Primrose Hill Community Centre host on Bouch 2nd Fri - French/European dancing and if you can play - join the band. The night I went the band was 4 hurdy gurdies (and Chris Shaw left his in its case!). & I couldn't see: George Inn?, 77 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1NH 1st Monday listed (mainly French) session and maybe some dancing.

It's not my favourite company, but check Ticketmaster for gigs and concerts. Also The Session website has a reasonably up-to-date list of Irish music sessions in London.

Central London to Priory Road is by no means a tricky journey, Freddie Headey. It involves a tube to either Finsbury Park or Turnpike Lane and then a bus journey. A trip from Russell Square would take around forty minutes.

Buses to Moravian Church

I lived in London for a while and regularly had to undertake journeys involving two forms of transport. It's the norm for many Londoners.
