GUEST,Jim Knowledge Singarounds: Code of Conduct (90* d) RE: Singarounds: Code of Conduct 30 Aug 18


I `ad that Joe Offer in my cab the other day. `e was pawing through a copy of "The Observers Book of Session Be`aviour"
I said, "Morning Joe, I see you`ve been giving it large on that Mudcat post about `ow Singarounds ought to be conducted"
`e said, "That`s right Jim. There seems to be a lot of concern about it these days. `ere, you and your band used to run "Singing and Playing Nights" down in "The Blacksmiths Arms". `ow did you get on?"
I said, "Well, initially there was always this contention about do we go clockwise or anti-clockwise?. Do a couple get two songs per go?. What `appens if a trio turn up? Could the singers dance while the players did a reel? `oos song is `oos? Can we close the bogs while someone in singing? etc.,etc. Some of `em used to get quite po faced about it all."
`e said "What did you do about it all, then?"
I said, "We charged `em `arf a dollar per song or tune. That slowed it all down a bit, they seemed to accept it and, of course, it was a nice little earner!!"


Whaddam I Like??
