Several apologies from long-standing singers who have had to travel to all corners of the world, but our numbers were boosted by three new singers who have returned to The John Harvey Tavern to share our repertoire and enhance the sound that drifts through the pub. Tina had prepared a flexible running order so that we were able to air a wide variety of songs as we head into spring and summer, not all of which we sing regularly at venues.
The Constant Lovers, Oh, Good Ale, The Bee Boy’s Song, Green Grow the Laurel, Ha’nacker Mill, The Brave Eleven, Hares on the Mountain, Life of a Man, Rosebuds in June, Jim The Carter Lad, Twanky Dillo, Sussex by the Sea, Old Adam, The Magpie, The Nightingale, Song of The Sussex Downsman, A Smuggler’s Song, Littlehampton Collier Lads, They Won’t Let Us Go To Sea Any More, Pleasant and Delightful, the Woodcutter’s Song and Thousands Or More!
The newcomers are quick learners and managed to keep up with the introduction of this medley of songs. It won’t be long until they know the lot without word sheets like the rest of us (wish we could)!
