Last Saturday, in the upstairs room at the Elephant & Castle, Lewes, we were guests of the Lewes Saturday Folk Club and made very welcome indeed. Throughout August, the club is holding a series of 'Come All Ye's so we took our turn amongst fellow singers and readers. The theme for the evening was 'Birds, beasts and other relatives' and seven of us (me, John & Gaynor, John Kydd, Margo, Judy Robinson and Tina) gave full voice to Twanky Dillo, The Cuckoo and The Nightingale in our first mini-set. When our turn came round again, we delivered Rosebuds, Three Maidens and Old Adam. And, yes, they all have animal / bird references!
John K offered for us to sing some more but at 11.15pm we were told that the evening was, sadly, over! Nice try, John! SDFS - Such Determined Folk Songsters!
We have been asked to come back and surely will. Thanks to Bryan Creer, Valmai Goodyear and Don Morgan for a great night.
