Local Group Report – Lewes Tuesday 19th April 2016
Twelve singers joined Tina at The John Harvey Tavern (that is 13 really!). We have been elevated to the room upstairs because the snug was being used as a repository for furniture. The meeting room allowed us to all sit around one big table with more ease and, with carpet on the floor, the sound of our practice session was less audible downstairs in the main bar! Because we will we going back to Bateman’s in August there are some more songs penned by Kipling that we hope to learn. Tina introduced us to “Follow Me Home” and “Oak and Ash and Thorn” which we worked through thoroughly before revisiting “The Farmer’s Toast”, “Jim The Carter Lad”, “Seasons Turn”, “Poor Froze Out Gardeners”, “The Magpie” etc.
