Good day to all fellow Hooligans!
Its been a bit busy over the last few days so apologies if I have taken a bit long to post this blog update.
Firstly, our thanks to Martyn Hillstead and all the folks at the Teignmouth Folk Club who gave us such a warm welcome at the Oystercatcher Cafe in Teignmouth on Thursday 29th September. What a friendly and talented bunch of people. Alongside some excellent unaccompanied singing there were other singer songwriters performing some insightful and cleverly written pieces – all very entertaining and enjoyable. We ended the evening
with a couple of tunes and a song. For those who are not aware of the the folk club you can keep in touch with what is going on there by subscribing to their public Facebook group at this address – or search in Google for them…
The the following day it was down to the Crown and Sceptre in Torquay who host a Friday night folk session.
I love these sessions – you never know who will turn up and play and certainly every time we’ve played there, there is a great atmosphere in a real old pub – not one of those plasticky excuses for a bar – but a throw back in time (in a good way of course! If you are down that way on a Friday night from half pas eight onwards pop in – I don’t think you will be disappointed!
Where next? Well we will be at a session back in the Pack Horse Inn in South Brent again this Thursday (6th October 2016) from about 8 o’clock for more mayhem and madness and then on Saturday moving on to Kent for a few weeks (or possibly longer). I’ll post more when we know where we will be going!
In the meantime stay happy and safe and see you somewhere soon.
