26th October 2021
Against a background of rising Covid cases, road works and other sickness, 5 hardy souls braved the weather and gathered as one at the 6 Bells. Tales were told and songs were sung. There was no amplification as Simon was too unwell to carry out his usual unselfish task of setting everything up for us. Instead we sat in a circle and performed acoustically.
It was a really nice evening Chris sang 5 songs follows’. My Only Hero’ a song he began at the recent songwriting workshop and completed afterwards. Chris’s hero was Peter Osgood who played football for Chelsea, and later, played for Southampton. His other songs were ‘Insomnia’s Dream’, I Want To Sing Along’ ‘My Mum, The Care Home and Alzheimer’s’ and ‘Ghosts’.
Roy who usually come along to listen played 2 pieces on the piano, a Mazurka and a Minuet.
Lance sang 5 songs in quick time ‘Old Bob’ a song about his labrador ‘The Old River’, ‘He Isn’t There Any More’ ‘Better Eat Your Veggies” and lastly ‘The Nativity Song’ all about baby Jesus, the King Of Kings and the Wise Men.
Heather sang ’Yes Dear’ , ‘Weald and Sea’, ‘The Skye Boat Song’ and ‘Here We’ll Stay’.
Clive sang 5 songs as follows.’The Grey Funnel Line’, ‘All Of The Love Will Remain’ ‘I Guess You’ll Never Know’, ‘ Above The Grey’ and ‘If You Will Be My Friend’
And that was it, packing up was easy to do as we were acoustic and all we had to do was put our guitars in their cases and like Elvis, we left the building.e to edit.
