Local Group Report – Lewes Tuesday 21st June 2016

Fifteen of us made an impressive noise in the John Harvey Tavern so that Fiona joined us at half time making 16! Mike and Margaret returned after joining us last month and this time brought their friend Ann, Sandria managed to come with a quiet, young French friend and also Angela is back from Austria.

Tina guided us through fifteen songs in a delightful jumble, mixing old with new, for a very enjoyable evening: Rolling in the Dew, The Woodcutter’s Song, A Smuggler’s Song, Come Write Me Down, O Good Ale, Run of The Downs, Pleasant and Delightful, Shepherd of The Downs, Jim the Carter Lad, Follow Me ‘ome, Three Maidens (with lots of giggles from new folk as they got the bird in the bush message), Constant Lovers (Musical Hall Style), Oak, Ash and Thorn, Farmer’s Toast, finishing with Rosebuds in June... but the group sang on with The Magpie, Jo’s lovely contribution of Steeleye Span’s Saucy Sailor and finally Thousands or More.
