A very full house this evening, it must be Margo. Thanks to Dave S and Margo for the show to-night, and an excellent choice of songs. Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Ken on bass, Tom on percussion, Eddie on harmonica and Brendan on drums. Thanks to this week’s soloists – Which included Steve G, who must have been on something from the surgery, for a Vet you couldn’t put him down. Also, as his supporting acts Trevor, Graham P, Mark, Carole, Ernie, Eddie, Dave D, Les B, Steve McG, Joe and Brendan.
Great STARTIME this week, with not too many tears. So it’s thanks to
- Joy and Graham for Elvis Costello’s Oliver’s Army. Mr Costello’s most successful song, staying at No2 in the charts for three weeks in 1979.
- Mark gave us an Irish song about “Irish Tea” – poteen or mountain dew. The Hills of Connemara. The song is a favourite of Irish balladeers including Noel McLoughlin, Sean McCarthy and Gaelic Storm.
- Les B gave us Pretty Paper. A song written in 1963 by Willie Nelson, but most famously recorded by Roy Orbison in the same year.
- Les H sang The Kinks Dead End Street, written by Ray Davies in 1966.
Next week it’s the turn of Brian Brittain and Eric Lilley. Set list later, but Eric has compiled songs from you all and knows which ones you are prepared to lead on. Get practicing.
It's the Christmas Show the week after and the girls seemed to be doing a lot plotting !!!!!
