Burning and busking at The Prince Albert


It was Burns Night, and some people came prepared with an appropriate song or tune or two. Well done Fred, Liz and Alan, Stuart and Delia, David, John, Richard, Karen and Alison. I think playing a tune in the French style written by a Scotsman on a Scottish-made mandolin doesn't count.  Nor do songs by Carole McKing or the Moody McBlues.

We didn't move the table around, so were even more pushed for space than usual. When Alison, David and Simon started their second turn, David left his guitar case open on the floor, whereupon several people threw coins into it. It appears that Hank Williams' You Win Again, sung by Alison accompanied by David and Simon,  with Steve as guest guitarist, is worth 24p.

Next week we'll be at The Dog & Badger.

There's a fifth Wednesday in February (Nerd quiz - how often does that happen?), so we don't have a regular venue. Please let us know if you have any preferences.
