Shepshed is too far away. One of the criteria for the session is that we should be able to walk there! I guess The Hollybush is in walking distance. It's a possibility. I'd have liked to keep it in Donisthorpe though. Well the Turks landlord is actually selling the place so if he gets a buyer we may be back in. Someone suggested we should club together and buy it as a sort of local cooperative pub.

However, having just been to "The Woodman", which is about 3/4 of a mile from us, to talk to him about sessions at the festival, I'm now wondering if that would be a goer. He doesn't seem to get many other customers.

...also, the landlord at the Britannia in Shepshed has a great upstairs room which is used for a Friday Folk Club - he's been very supportive; once again at loggerheads with the brewery but that seems par for the course nowadays.

Have you tried "The Holly Bush" at Oakthorpe. They've recently started running the Monday Folk night again. I think the management are,once again, hovering about whether to sell the place but they seem pretty friendly.

I'm sorry to have to report the demise of the North West Leicestershire Quarter sessions. Ted tried to arrange one for March but, because there were so few people at the December one, the landlord said "No". Seems a bit stupid to me since he doesn't actually have to do anything and it menas he actually has some people in the pub, albeit only a few, rather than none at all. Oh well, is it any wonder the man is going bankrupt?

Can't, at the moment think of anywhere else to hold it so for now it's off. We will try and find somewhere else.

Great Paul! It's a while since we've seen you!

Mr Happy, the proposed date is first weekend in September next year, but, having had the first meeting about it I'm not sure if it's a goer. The site poses an awful lot of problems being open to the general public and not able to be shut off. We have another meeting next week. I'll let you know when we've decided anything. I'd better start another thread for it....

Hello! We've been a bit slack with this over the last year. We will try to do better!

Unfortunately, we can't get the other venue...the landlord was most definite. So it's back to the surly but accomodating landlord at the Turk's Head. Unforunately, that probably means it will continue to be a Thursday evening.

Right...next session! Thursday 18th September at 8.00 ish.

Who's coming??

We have also been invited to help organize a folk festival at Moira furnace and are going to a meeting about it on Thursday. Don't know when yet but we will need stewards and helpers. We'll keep you posted!

Love Lynne

Amanda says she's too busy at the moment as she's studying and doing disertations (Is that spelled right? It doesn't look like it somehow) and such like.

Shady started singing in public when she was 5 and belongs to three choirs now so she's an old hand! Hoping she can go back to having flute lessons now with a little help from our friends and family.

Tentative next date is possibly 15th of March, though if we manage to sort a better venue it may be 21st or 22nd March instead.

Someone mentioned the Moira mini folk festival we talked about in the summer. If we can get the Railway in Moira for sessions we could include that and the Furnace for the festival. It could be good!

Love Lynne

Hi1 I'm with you about Amanda; somebody record her, and quick! The Hiring Fair is one of my favourites too, it was great to hear it in a session. Well done Shady, who I assumed was much older than 12, given the confidence and skill of her singing!
See you all next time I hope.
Tim
PS it wasn't Country Joe! It was 'Talkin' Vietnam Pot Luck Blues' by Tom Paxton! Small wonder the younger element didn't get some of the references!

Thanks all who came. I had a great time so I hope everyone else did too. Once again it was different from every other one we've had. Several people commented on it.

It was lovely to see everyone and great that people had come from so far away. We had people from Chester, Leek, Aylesbury and Harrow. The quality of the singing and music was wonderful and included at least three, no four...no more than that...people I would pay money to listen to. I have to say, as I said to her, that Amanda Diamond should be making and selling records. She is easily on a par with people like Kate Rusby.... a stunning singer.

I was kept totally happy as well, by hearing Eddie Richard's do "The Hiring Fair" which is one of my all time favourites. He was right when he said he'd never have got out of there alive if he hadn't done it for me. He also did "Meet on the Ledge" which is another one to make me totally happy. Houston Diamond did "No Woman No Cry", which I can listen to over and over again.
Steve Thomason was brilliant as ever. Mandotim was great and very useful since he can and does join in with all the music and I loved hearing the Country Joe and the Fish number he did, though amused to see that the only people laughing at it were the over 40s. Several younger people sat there listening with blank faces and not understanding most of it.

Tim and Neil on Swanee whistles were...interesting. Rachel (Cally Hanna) has obviously been doing a lot of practising and was great on both the concertina and the whistle. All the others were equally enjoyable and made a really good evening.

I must say I was so proud of my ShadyLady, who has always been quite a good singer though lacking in lung capacity. Suddenly her voice has become bigger, but remains beautifully clear. I know I'm a bit biased but I think she does brilliantly for 12 years old.

Once again, thank you everyone, it was wonderful to see and hear you all. We4 must make sure we continue to do the sessions regularly again. Still trying to find an alternative venue though, as the landlord remains a surly and unwelcoming sod even though we must have more than doubled his normal Thursday evening takings.

See you in March??

Love Lynne

Hmmm...just posted to this and it seems to have disappeared. Try again.

Having failed to get our act together for the last two quarters, so many people have asked if we're having a Christmas session that it has spurred us on to arrange it. There was supposed to be a change of venue but it seems easier just to have it as usual. So....
At 8.00ish on Thursday 20th December in the Turk's Head in Donisthorpe there will be a Yuletide session.

Anyone coming??

So sorry...I forgot to post back about this. No it's not on. Every time we try to organize a night we discover that there's something else happening...usually work in one form or another. We may give the summer one a miss, though we have thought about perhaps having it later in July? Otherwise the next will be in September. I'm not sure it's a good weekend for people to be travelling so perhaps it's no bad thing not to have it.

Suddenly realised that we cancelled the 23rd June session but haven't come up with an alternative. Hopefully it will be the following Saturday, 30th June. I'll let you know for sure in the next couple of days with the details. I think it will have to be a 'Bring your own' one this time as we don't really have time to organise anything else.

Who's coming??
