Hi Captain Swing
Sorry to hijack your thread but you may want to tell anyone at your session about Martin Simpson coming to our music exchange event on 27 April at Dorchester Hotel Beverley Road Hull.
See separate thread "MARTIN SIMPSON @ music exchange HULL" for more details
cheers

A clue as to start/finish times would be good. Don't want to drive 40 miles and turn up at 7.45 only to find out it ended at 5.30! :-)

Starts 8.30pm - Finishes 10.30pm

It being Easter weekend next week, the Bash won't take place on the Sunday but will possibly be moved to the Bank Holiday Monday - confirmation of this soon.

This is to confirm that The Bash will take place on Monday evening this weekend instead of Sunday.

Don't seem right to have a minority smoking allowance. I would have thought it would have been non smoking, seen as the vast majority don't smoke.

Incidentally Captain Swing, I hope you use Graham Moore's song that he wrote called "Captain Swing" as your opening number.

Thanks for that, Villan. Sounds like a good song. In my previous folk incarnation I would have snapped it up but I'm changing style a little at the moment.

On the smoking issue - there are so few smokers that it isn't a problem and the law will sort it out fairly soon anyway ...... saves having a witch hunt.

Don't geta witch hunt at my club. banned smoking 2 years ago. Never regretted it :-)

There's a difference between an open mic and a folk club though

Not when it comes to the majority of the people having to put up with passive smoking from the minority!

We are by nature not a club. We play in a room in a pub which we hope will attract passing trade as would a normal pub gig. We don't charge on the door, there is no gatekeeper. From this point of view it seems to me that to ban smoking or not would be a decision for the pub management as the room is open to anyone who wants to come in.

We'll look forward to seeing you. As it happens, I'm a life-long non-smoker.

Bad luck Swordy, we even had the ref on our side :-) I will be very surprised if you escape this season. Amazing when you think of the senior players you have.

I've just returned from Edinburgh where the Scottish laws on smoking are in force. Now there are sad little huddles of people on the streets outside the pubs, all smoking away furiously.

Personally I think these laws are a good thing. I had to give up folk singing for a very long time when the cigarette smoke hurt my eyes too much. I'm a lifetime non-smoker.
