Pegasus Proves Popular


Another full house this week as The Pegasus is proving popular – nice atmosphere, plenty of space and good beer.

Dave Heath led Young Collins and Princess Royal to start the evening off in full swing followed by Dick getting our voices going with Bring Us A Barrel. Gerry changed the mood with the Beatles delicate little song Julia and then we were off on another chorus with Steve’s Green Hills of Antrim. Alan and Rosie led polkas and then gave us the topical My Funny Valentine. Later in the evening we were treated to another topical song – John’s newly written parody (of Summertime Blues) entitled Credit Crunch Blues – well done John. Gerry later sang the lovely Vincent, Dick grinned while singing She Loved A Portuguese, and Rosie continued the Valentine’s theme with Looking In The Eyes Of Love.

Kerraliegh and Martin came along for their second shot of MBAC and gave us Neil Young’s Old Laughing Lady (one of Alan’s favourites), Mushaboom by Feist and Dumb I Am by Nina Nastasia. They are an excellent duo.

It was lovely to welcome Steve Donnely who was guesting at Readifolk on Sunday. He sang the lovely John of Dreams, Paddy’s Going Home (his own composition) and more but I can’t remember what! Lovely to see you Steve and thanks for the email to us later saying how much you’d enjoyed the evening - it’s always good to get feedback from visitors.

Delia gave us the unaccompanied Can You Sew Cushions, and Marie’s Wedding and Stuart, whose Truro Agricultural Show was featured on Marlowfm online radio, sang My Old Game Cock.

Karen and Roger sang Catch the Wind and Follow the Heron Home, and later Karen sang The Circle Game with Steve. Dave and Norma sang Dave’s own excellent Tolpuddle song and Dave led some more tunes – Jack Robinson and Old Tom.

The Fenners & Simon gave us The Irish Lads, Simon sang Martin (A brother Like), and Alison sang the poignant How Can I Keep From Singing. Later they did Meet on the Ledge with everyone joining in the well known chorus.

Later our harpist France turned up and played O’Carolan’s Si Bheag Si Mhor with Roger – very much appreciated – excellent musicianship from both of them, and so lovely to hear the harp.

We will be at The Pegasus again on the 25th March, so do come along as it’s a lovely venue.

In the meantime we will be at The Old Ship on Wed 18th Feb, and The Prince Albert on Wed 25th Feb, both lovely little pubs with a warm cosy atmosphere.
