Local Group Report – Lewes – Tuesday 21st March 2017
This turned out to be an excellent evening with 12 of us rolling through 22 songs, so here goes: Drink Me Brave Boys (with its extra verse written by Mac!), The Nightingale, The Turmut Hoer, Farmer’s Toast, at which point two men appeared and joined in with Pleasant And Delightful, Thousands Or More and Country Life before returning to the bar. So we started on the more sober Ha’nacker Mill, Poor Froze Out Gardeners and They Won’t Let us Go To Sea Any More before our break. The second half started with The Magpie, Where Stormy Winds Do Blow, West Sussex Drinking Song, On Sussex Hills, Rolling In The Dew, The Woodcutter’s Song, Three Maidens, A Smuggler’s Song, Oak, Ash and Thorn, Run of the Downs, East Sussex Drinking Song and finishing with Seasons Turn – all on half a shandy!
