During August, the Saturday Folk Club are hosting singarounds and we have been invited to join in. On Saturday 10th, there will be songs with a theme of "Birds, beasts and other relatives" – so you can guess the setlist! No? Oh, all right then, here 'tis:
Twanky Dillo (horse)
The Cuckoo (bird)
Rosebuds in June (sheep and oxen – oh, and small warbling birds)
Eilean Na Ruin (bird)
Three Maidens (bird)
Old Adam (horses, foxes)
Ebernoe Horn Fair (horse)
Rolling in the Dew (implied cow!!)
Note that because it's a singaround, lots of people get a go so we'll probably only get to sing a few – but it will be great fun anyway, listening to others. With this in mind, the songs we sing will depend on how many of us there are and how many will harmonize.
So please let me know asap
a) if you are coming
b) for which songs you know the harmonies.
It's £3 to get in (but only £1 if you are singing – i.e. us) – bring lots of audience: the more the better!
Venue: The Elephant & Castle (upstairs room), White Hill, Lewes, BN7 2DJ
Time: 8pm start (the club usually runs till 11 so I'd ask for us to sing reasonably early).
We will meet in the bar downstairs at 7.45pm to finalize what we'll sing and agree any other issues (like harmonies etc).
Call / e-mail me if you need any more information.
