Subject: Singaround, Lymm, Cheshire
From: John J
Date: 06 May 03 - 08:35 AM

A new singaround is starting tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at the Railway, Heatley, near Lymm, Cheshire. Entitled 'Song in the Snug', it's intended to be primarily singing of traditional songs, along with the odd tune.

The beer is very good: Tim Taylors Landlord, Boddingtons, and also a good guest beer.

There is currently a folk club at this pub on Thursday evenings. 'Song in the Snug' is not intended to compete with the club, but to supplement it by attracting those who prefer traditional songs of the British Isles.

The room is small enough to feel cosy, big enough to fit plenty in, and as it's the 'snug' it is actually part of the pub so it may not always be possible for it to be very quiet when singing.

John

Should be there JJ

If it is the room on the left as you enter the pub it is a great room

The noise should not be a problem - if it gets too noisy to sing we can resort to talking and drinking.

Forgive my ignorance! What exactly is a singaround? What sort of "traditional" songs would be sung? Are the songs ones that everybody know already? Does everybody join in the choruses?

Puzzled: A singaround is what is sounds like; a group of singers sat around the room, each having a turn at singing. What sort of tradional songs? More difficult to answer......traditional ones? Come along and see, or listen, or better still: sing! I'm sure some of the songs will be known by some of the company, equally some may not be known. It would be nice to think that if chorus songs are sung, everbody would join in. Please come along if you can, you will be most welcome.

AG: I'm not sure who's running it, probably the people who turn up!

John R: yes it is the room on the left, I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Noreen: Hello Noreen! Fancy a sing?

Ignorance forgiven!

"Come along and find out" is the obvious answer, if you're interested!

If I were there I would probably ask JJ to sing 'Young Banker' because I like him singing it, Schantieman will likely sing a shanty or two, or a Keith Marsden song, John Routledge might sing 'Dol-li-a' and I might well sing a 42- verse ballad about abandoned females dying for love and thwarted suitors and roses and briars...


(Don't know about everybody, it's not compulsory, but yes, people do join in the choruses, where there are choruses.)

Would love a sing, JJ, as ever, but will be listening to son playing trumpet, representing his school in a competition organised by the Rotary.
So, Fanfare for the Common Man rather than Young Banker for me tomorrow!

I'm hoping to be at the Red Bull in Stockport on Thursday though- would be nice to see you there, if two nights on the run were possible.

The acoustics in the room have been sorted - Paul's put poison down and set traps!

Erm... technicackly, a 'trad' song is one of anonymous origin, and usually there is more than one version of the same song extant. Some people's definition seems to include songs which have been sung often even though the writer is known... stretching a point!!

Hope to be there, folks!

Your song? Did you write it then, Alan? Gosh, you must be old....

Bernard, in this case, I don't think anyone would keep to that strict definition- I suppose most songs will be "in the traditional style"

I've seen this thread too late to put the info in Folkal Point, even as a stop press item (it's now 7.40pm UK time). Please let me know when the next session is, and the frequency, so I can give it some publicity. Also, details of who's organising it (previous experience tells me if there's no designated organiser a session soon descends into chaos, although I'll be happy to be proved wrong...). Have fun tonight.

I really enjoyed it; the accoustic in the room is excellent and everybody made a really good contribution. A great start; thanks everybody for comming. JJ spent that much time sampling the landlord that he missed the Black Sheep on draught!

I can confirm that there will be another on 21 May, and we have also penciled in for 4 & 18 June.

We don't really have a boss Joan, but I take your point that it could all fall apart if no one looks after it. So I'll take responsibility for rounding people up and making sure that the room is available for us.

Thanks for that info, Alan, I'll see it gets into the next Folkal Point. Would it be possible to have a contact phone number please, for people to check with who may be travelling some distance? If not, I could put in the pub's phone no.

Glad the night was a success, here's hoping it becomes a regular feature.

I was there last night, and a jolly good night it was too. Only got lost twice on the way there. Black Sheep was excellent - didn't sample the TT's Landlord as well owing to necessity of driving home!

Good luck to all for the future - the more singing the better. Will try and make it next time too.

Hello Lucy!
Yes It's me. What a pleasant surprise you can email me directly if you need to: john.jocys@btinternet.com .

Let me know when you're coming up and I'll do the required research and provide you with a plan.

I hope you're all well, we won't be able to do Wadebridge this year 'cos I was too late in getting my holidays in :-(

The singaround t'other night was really very good indeed, with superb singing in very good company, a rather nice beer. Perhaps your visit to Macc will coincide with one of the singarounds....I hope so.

I'm surprised that you can remember Wadebrige John after that rocket fuel that you kept drinking in the Ship!
I'll not be able to make it to Wadebridge either this year - got my nephew's wedding to attend that weekend.

Thanks for the publicity Joan, you can put my number in as the contact 01625 861042. The pub number is on The Railway Folk Club's web site (www.railwayfolkclub.co.uk)

If the next one is half as good as the first one it will be superb! I'll check out the Black Sheep next time.....I suppose I could always slum it and drink Landlord like wot Madonna does. I'll be on my bike again (for the exercise you understand).

The room is booked and we're raring to go!

The only problem is that the Black Sheep have all gone astray. But they have been replaced by Geriatric Spotty Chickens (my favourite), so you'll be wobbling even more than usual.

For those who asked at the folk club last Thursday, we are not doing the same thing as the Folk Club. I can only repeat JJs words that it is primarily for those who want to sing/listen to/talk about TRADITIONAL FOLKSONG in a quieter setting, with the odd pint of good ale to keep us going.
