Being TWO Fridays: 28th November and 5th December, 2014 ...

The blog-administrator apologises for this tardy post.
He has been much distracted of late, and readily confused.

We recently welcomed some new participants to our gathering ...

Here's Paul of Bognor Regis ...

Amy Goddard came along with her husband, Matt.
The club has purchased a copy of Amy's CD, Burn and Glow.
That will become a desirable prize for the Christmas raffle ...

Yes, it is still in its original cellophane wrapping.
Dogsbody bought his own back in August.

Believe me, this is a particularly good album.
Be not disappointed if you don't win it; you can buy your own from Amy's website.

Last Friday, (5th December,) we were delighted to discover that the Guide Hall refurbishment is pretty well complete with three loos and an additional rehearsal room.
What more could one desire?

Philosopher's Balcony is no more ...

Now we have use of a magnificent Stargazers Platform ...

Oh, yes, that's why we're here, but there was too much to document completely - a total of 56 performances of considerable quality.

Mike demonstrated his decorative guitar strings ...

There were several references to death, love lost and found, celestial bodies, atmospheric disturbance and precipitation.
Tony's bestiary featured marine organisms ...

Some minutes were occupied
in consideration of this question:
"Do lobsters actually swim?"

There were trains, ships, sheep-slaughter ... my brave boys ... a smattering of holiness and only one account of a socially-acquired disease.
Such is the nature of folk music!

There was singing, dancing, (well, Angela did!) whistling, yodelling, benign interpersonal abuse - and much fun.
