Being Friday the 11th of April, 2014 ...

What do you do when only a few people turn up?
Carry on regardless!

We had time to converse.

We talked about this famous Lancastrian singer …

Kathleen Ferrier, (1912-1953.)

In April, 1953, whilst performing Orpheus, Miss Ferrier suffered a spontaneous fracture of her left femur. Supported by other cast members she continued to sing her remaining arias as the audience remained unaware of her discomfort.
6 months later, at the age of 42, she died of breast cancer.

In the folk world she is probably best remembered for her rendition of Blow the Wind Southerly

Roger demonstrated a plectrum manufactured from a Tesco Clubcard.
“The embossed numbers provide a good grip,” he declared.
The Nectar Card doesn’t work!

We enjoyed what you might call a workshop or rehearsal session with several impromptu collaborations.

Finally we went home bearing happy countenances ...

Now, next Friday, 18th of April, will be Good Friday.
The City Folk Club will operate as normal.
If you don't come you'll miss your complimentary Easter egg!
