Wed 19th Nov at The Prince Albert


It was lovely to meet Gerry for the first time, who sang the lovely Vincent and April Come She Will. Likewise, to see two of our now-and-then visitors, France with his harp, and Roger Rowe with his songs. France did some lovely tunes but I didn’t get the name of them. And Roger, despite suffering from the end of a cold, gave us a wonderful version of I Would That The Wars Were All Over.

Our other Roger gave us Canal in November – not really, .... in October of course.

The 2 Stuarts gave us Al Stewart’s Road to Moscow, You say it Best … or as someone commented, a really romantic way of saying “shut up”, and Lowlands Low.

We only had one Dave this week, who brought his mandola, and gave us The Dorsetshire Hornpipe and Steamboat, sang a song I didn't get the name of, and accompanied Simon on Galway Girl. Simon also played Herbert Smith’s 4-hand Reel and The Dark Girl Dressed in Blue.

Other regulars, Dick, Alan & Rosie, Steve, Karen, Roger and Delia gave us:
Dido Bedigo, Times They Are A Changing, Medicine Wheel, Over the Hills and Far Away. The Difficult Hornpipes (Cronins & Alexanders), Across The Universe, Night Rider’s Lament, Bonnie Bessie Logan, Sarah Morgan’s Keep You In Peace, Mazurkas, Dream A Little Dream, Waltzing’s For Dreamers, and Let Union be.

Next Wednesday (26th) we are at The Prince Albert again.

Olly, the new chef at The Pegasus in Marlow Bottom is settling in and the beer is now very good and the food recommended. We may well be returning to Marlow Bottom for the last Wed of each month in 2009. We will keep you posted on the website and by email if we have your contact details.
