A big thank you to Dave and Val who were our MCs for the evening. It was really Val that was in charge! Dave sat obediently beside her and supported everything she said. Together they did a really good job of making us laugh and the evening, was light hearted and filled with quality musicians. There were a lot of folk away and many more ‘off sick’.
Thanks also to Mike who gave us the following write up. So here it is, short and sweet with photos at the end.
Val and Dave started the evening with a Yeti song ‘Lemorna’.
June then did ‘Lily Marlane’ and ‘I’ll Fly Away’.
Tim is moving away from Kilmington, so we won’t see him again. His first song was ‘I Lost My Heart’ then he did ‘Old Devil Called Love’. Tim had written the lyrics. Sad to see you go.
Steve sang ‘She Still Thinks I care’ followed by ‘The Waight’.
Pam, had a bad bout of flu and had been on antibiotics. Andrew has had operations on both his feet and his left foot is infected so he is also on antibiotics. Pam said she didn’t think that antibiotics worked anymore so she wrote a special song. Antibiotics don’t work anymore, so bring on Uncle Biotic! It was hilarious and she called it ‘Uncle Biotic’ she then sang ‘Stand By Your Man’.
Mike sang ‘Lucille’ then went on to sing ‘Everybody Talking’.
Fran gave us some beautiful flute playing, first of which was ‘Mountains Of Morn’ followed by ‘Down By The Sunny Gardens.
Peter sang ‘If The Blues Don’t Get’ then he sang ’16 Tons’.
Harry The Hat Played & sang ‘Let Me Fly’ (inspired by June’s flying song) and finished with a Bob Dylan one called ‘I Want You’.
Simone did a poem called ‘Daffydd¬The Lonely Daffodill’ then our favourite ‘Sail With Me.’
Stacy sang ‘In The Arms Of The Angels’ followed by ‘Titanic Wearever You Are’
Val and Dave then did their second number called ‘The Last Plane Home’.
Write up by Mike New.
Val then said we would go into interval time.
After interval we had a really good jam session. Folk played and sang things that others could join in. It was great! Piano Pam was asked to finish the evening with a good old oldie. ‘When the Saints’ was chosen. It was lovely to see the two S’s (Simone and Steve) up dancing.
Thanks again to Eyre Court for letting us use the Restaurant for our sessions. Remember folk, they make good food. It is nice to come a bit early, dump your instruments by a chair, then go and relax with a good meal. No cooking and no washing up!! Who could ask for anything more????
We look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday the 15th March.
