Big Session In Barton [Lincs UK]?

Subject: Big Session In Barton [Lincs UK]?
From: Rt Revd Sir jOhn from Hull

Hello, I spoke to El Ted last week , and he had the idea of loads of Hull people going to The Barton Tuesday session,
Loads of Barton people been to Hull, like Oaklet and Skipjack, they both went to The Adelphi.
And Karen n Colin Tomson , and bloke in the corner, and oaklet and skipjack all been to Hull Folk Club, so we thought its about time a few of us went to there session.
I talked to Skipjack about this a few days ago, and he reckons its a good idea.

it will be a tuesday, [not sure which one], in the next few weeks.

If enough people are intrested we could hire a minibus, so everybody could drink, [all put money to it, it should not be more than a few quid each].

Plenty of taxi places etc do mini bus hires, if anyone knows a good one write it here,
and if anyone knows the best date to go, write it here.

That sound like a good idea. Can we avoid the Tuesday of Whitby Folk Week though? And if we get enough people interested from this side, we could get a mini-bus taxi to cut down bridge fees and allow everyone to drink.

As a south banker, I can assure you all of a hearty welcome in the Six Bells, with me, Skippy, the Ayatollah etc. perhaps even persuading Oakley (Let's talk about something else - now, what do you think of me???) to get his fiddle out and fiddle about with it. Though that might frighten the landlady's doberman.

Another idea, is all meet up at the Humber Bridge, and swim across the river, to save bridge money, [bridge tax is a big rip off].

take your swimming costumes.

From: Rt Revd Sir jOhn from Hull

I just realised that swimming across the river is a silly idea, as peoples instruments will get wet and go all soggy, and might not sound good.

i think the river is full of crap and chemicals as well, [could damage instruments].

Yes, Mr Silver, next Tuesday from around 8.30 pm.
The Six Bells is in Barrow upon Humber. Look on the map for Barton Upon Humber (on the south end of the Humber Bridge) and Barrow is off to the east, about three miles. If coming from Brigg towards Barton the village is signposted at the A15 junction - don't worry, you'll see it when you get there.
Go into the village centre, you'll see the Royal Oak pub on your left, turn right there and the Six Bells is 10 (ten) yards along, on a corner. You can't get very lost, it really is a small place.
You will, of course, be most welcome as will all travelling folkies every Tuesday night.
We are proud that our session is anarchic, no-one leads it, tunes and songs equally allowed - and you might well get to hear Karen & Colin Thompson, Dave Oakley etc- playing for FREE!! My God, what an offer!
See you there

I'll be at the Monks Walk - we have to show the Farlingtonians what we're made of. Specky will be delighted if we get through 700 pints on sunday! We can mull over plans on sunday and I'm sure we can find space elsewhere if you have no room left Ted. I do hope I make it on tuesday - I've never seen Oaklet in his natural habitat before.

There is no leader, GS. It's a musical collective of the loosest kind, and the only rule is no rules, saving the only Commandment. Anything that happens there is unlikely to make the next re-writing of the History of the English Speaking Peoples, so we're quite relaxed. We usually attract several local members of the light entertainment industry and happily bang along with them in the key of Barton. Bloke thinks he's chief anarchist, so it is worth PMing him for parish notices and the like, although he has sub-contracted the job of laying on commestibles to me for this bash.

And what about the two little lassies playing whistles! My gob has never been so smacked! Such talent - makes me feel like giving it all up and retiring to Eastbourne.

Just a small negative - slightly on the smurky side, but what the hell - us non-smurking Linkunsheer puffters wuz warned beforehand, I'm a big lad and I can live wi' it for the sake of the music!

This Tuesday? Me, of course. All others most welcome, the half term session should be great, but of course all players/singers etc will receive hearty willkommen, bienvenue, welcome... ahlen, was ahlen, gokigen i genki des'ka... (not quite sure about transliterating the Japanese).. whenever they come.
Told you I was a polyglot.

A little advance warning here, the BIG half term session in the Six Bells, Barrow on Humber, will be in just under three weeks time, on Tuesday 26th October 2004. That's half term, so the young folks who came last time won't need to get up for school in the morning. Make arrangements, book the evening in your diary, last time it was a real stormer, let's do it again on the 26th. I'll tell Jo, the landlady, and she'll provide tasty morsels. And in case you haven't been before, it's in Barrow on Humber, about 4 miles east of the Humber Bridge south side. The beer is good, and I think everyone last time agreed the welcome was very friendly!.
Look forward to seeing you all there, and of course at our regular Tuesday sessions, if you fancy coming.

My doctorate has been suffering from all my fiddle playing recently and I have vowed not to go out to another session until I have finished. However, I am sure that I can make just one tiny exception! SEE YOU ALL AT THE BIG SESSION! Ooooo! I'm excited already!

Richard.

Looking forward very much to it.

Listen guys, Thanks for the welcome last night. Really enjoyed myself. I'm still high after the tunes and songs. They've put a real spring in my step. Sorry I can't join you next Tuesday but I've majored on Gainsboro Festival and Lincoln Folk Club already this week and need to do my bit at home with the "young uns".

Sounds as though it's going to be quite something. Have a great time and I'll try to get up again pre crimble.

Cheers

Well, you wouldn't expect me to miss another like last time, now would you?
It seems about three of the Hull youngsters are coming, so their music will be another plus point.
Just think, some folks hardly ever experience live music of the quality we'll be having tomorrow night, and fewer still will ever have been part of it. Gives you a warm feeling deep in the cockles of your heart... or should that be whelks?

Many thanks to those that bought the Yellowbellies Cd at Barrow on Humber tonight.

Nice set up there. I was very impressed to see the youingsters playing away there. Good on yer Barrow:-)

Sorry I had to leave a bit early, but I have a new job and need to be alert tommorrow. Job must come first.

Great time, great playing, great young musicians, and the music we love to play being passed on to the next generation. Not to mention you old buggers did really well!! I'm looking forward to the next one already.
Now, how about the Tuesday before Christmas as the next one? That's 21 December or thereabouts. I'll obviously post a bit nearer the time, but that will give us plenty of time to wind up for it.
Of course, you're all welcome at every Tuesday session at the Six Bells, except next Tuesday, when we're all going to see his holiness Lord Philip of Cunningham and Sir Aly of Bain in Brigg...

Thanks for the warm welcome, and particularly to Jo for the food. It was so good to see the girls treated as the serious musicians that they are. How about 6-year old Lydia making her debut!
Keep an eye (ear) open for those Wainwright girls and their friends and hope they do carry on the tradition.I'll keep their mum Liz informed about the possibility of a visit in December.

I had a very good time and look forward to my next visit. I'll see you all at Ali B and Phil C.

By the way did any of you find a fiddle mute, which I think I left on a table. It is a ten-pronged affair made of black rubber with the words "ULTRA USA" on it. I think that Oaklet and El Ted get their ten-pronged black rubber affairs at Gwenap but they are a bit different in design and less efficient for silencing an accompanying fiddle that isn't sure what note is coming next.

If any of you have it, could you bring it to Ali B?

Best wishes,

Richard.

Watching Fluffy the landlady's rottweiller passing the ten-pronged rubber mute on Thursday afternoon was particularly distressing for all concerned.

It is now a malodourous three-pronged number. Sorry Rich.

Normally there is a session every Tuesday, Geoff, and very welcome you would be to come. The only thing is, this Tuesday (2nd November) the regulars are mostly going to see Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham in Brigg, so probably there won't be anyone there. But do come to the regular Tuesday session, we have all sorts - oakie, skippies, ploughflyies, blokies...all sorts.
