an egg-sized man and more


We had a really fun evening and were delighted to see Dave and Norma back, though sorry the colder weather is putting an end to their travels. But it was great to hear some of Dave's songs again, including some of our favourites - "Northern Nights" and "Northern Geordie England".

It was also lovely to see Alison and Lester who were making the most of their holiday to get out and about, so we had some great melodeon tunes and some rather saucy songs from Alison including the Dog and Gun song and Kipper's Nancy Sailor.

Vicky had learnt a new one - well done! - something about Polly & dancing on your wedding day. Rosie also sang a new one & Alan informed us that when a couple are serious their record collection merges - they found they only shared one, and Rosie's new song was from that, Stevie Wonder's "Blame it on the Sun" from "Talking Book".

Alan and Rosie also told us that when Dave sang his Irish excise song, Martin could never understand why they ran like the devil from the egg sized man!

Thanks also to Bob, Steve, Dick and Karen. Dick sang a song he hadn't sung for 30 years, which Karen suggested was before she was born, to which Dick made mention of a scurrilous rumour which will not be repeated here - you have to come along to get all the benefits of the banter!
