Thread Name: Hull Sesssions and Singarounds
Subject: RE: Hull Sesssions and Singarounds
The Black Boy session was specifically set up and publicised as a musician (instrumentalists) session so that singers and musicians would not have any false expectations and be upset if they didn't get asked for a song. That having been made clear at the outset, we do have some songs and several of the regular instrumentalists are singers also. So, the rule of thumb is, if there is a bit of a gap in the tunes then sometimes someone will sing a song. However expect that there will likely be some instrumental accompaniment (done with sensitivity we hope!) because the bottom line is that we are all there to play and participate rather than watch and be entertained by others. Hope that makes things a bit clearer for you, Guest tatterfoal. If you should join us to listen or if you find an opportunity to give us a song then I am sure you will find a warm welcome.
