Hi Folkies - long time no post. I'd just like to tell you about the choir that I joined at Easter, which is expanding the venues where it meets to Stevenage, Ampthill and Milton Keynes. It's got the feel-good factor and I love it. Please pass this info onto friends, rellies and anyone who wants to sing, but not on their own in a singaround.

REPORT REPORT REPORT..........The WAGGON and HORSES, Barton Le Clay - 10th October 2012


The move down the road for the Barton Folk Club was successful! Well done Ann for finding another venue at such short notice. The public bar is warm and cosy, though not cramped, as there was plenty of room in the centre of the circle for a near-Morris dance.

Ann's keyboard found a table and we were treated to some of Ann's folk classics with moving lyrics. Yvonne led the chorus with her song about drunken Dad and produced music from her Mary Poppins bag for those of us who had forgotten theirs. Oops. Eileen played along. MK Trevor was on the viola and mouth organ and can be reassured we recognised all the tunes. Aaargh , me hearties. Diane's bringing her poems next time.

It seems somebody has been calming Go Graham and he gave us some shorter meddlies – always good fun. Rob sneaked in a Brown Eyed Girl in Hitchin John's absence, but we knew the words to sing along.

We heard Morris tunes, a shanty and a sweet song 'Avondale' from John E. The latter caught the ear of the Gary Barlows in the room, who were imagining that song rolled out elsewhere. Trevor's accordion sparkled with new acoustics and reflective angles of the room and David added some wry poetry to his repertoire , about Senile Dimentia.

Roy, George and Maggie's exhuberance and great harmonies provided opportunities for accompaniment and percussion. I played my guitar strapless, and used that excuse to explain away bum notes. Guess what we ended on? Yes – Wagon Wheel has crossed the threshold of yet another pub in Beds.


Reg, the landlord, was happy and would like support for his Fund Raiser in the main bar on Sunday 11th November for Remembrance Day from 3 - 6pm. The theme is old songs from the First and Second World War periods and have a bit of a singalong. He wasn't too specific though, said he would delight us with his singing and give us beer.

Thanks all for lovely evening, back there in a fortnight and bully in the alley.

BEDFORD FOLK CLUB 8th August – from the jewel-encrusted keyboard of the Clubmeister.

A truly international line-up this week, in temperatures more befitting an English summer, made for a very pleasant evening amongst old friends. We had delegations from as far afield as Barton, Raunds and St Neots, and border restrictions were temporarily lifted for the much awaited return of Bob and Cressida, from the Bedford Protectorate of Winchcombe.

When they appeared at 9pm, it was a great relief to discover they had not been held up by Spanish Customs (so that's where that phrase comes from!), but family visits and a wind-up satnav had delayed their arrival.

Anyway, in the meantime, and already with a roomful of talent, I kicked off in Paxtonian mode, as is so often the case, with "Last thing on mind" just to exercise everybody's vocals. This set the tone for my offerings – good song with a chorus – for the rest of the night. This consisted of a requested "Dim lights of Harwich" and a Black Country song for fellow Midlander Bob, "The fireman's song" by Don Bilston of Wednesbury (or was it Don Wednesbury of Bilston?).

There is no more moving story than that of Mel's move to Raunds – an epic saga lasting over 2 years. His relief at having finally completed it, and finding a good local plumber as well, was clearly evident in the relaxed and polished "Mill Worker" that he opened with. The much disputed "Blue cockade" followed, together with a smooth-as-honey rendition of Smokey's "My girl". Great stuff.

Karl began in similarly laid back fashion, with John Prine's superb "Hello in there", but of course, swiftly degenerated into the cleverly farcical humour which has made him famous. We had only just recovered from hearing about Dave, a pigeon with vertigo, than we were launched into "One more minute", by "Weird Al" Yankoviz. For anyone who has not had the pleasure, the gist of it is that he would rather suffer unspeakably cruel body mutilation than re-unite with his girlfriend. Somehow, Karl's calm and dignified style made it totally believable!

A very welcome irregular at the Club, Alan Laws, was with us this week, and appeared to benefit greatly from the BFC Therapy. Starting in a fairly blue mood with "St James' Infirmary", he was feeling a bit more chirpy by the time he did "The bleedin' sparrow" – and distinctly cheerful for "On my way". Come back soon, Alan – you know it makes sense.

Accordion and bodhran make a great combination, especially in the skilled hands of Clive and Malcolm. They paid us their traditional holiday time visit this week and a variety of tunes gave us all a good chance to brush up on our foot-tapping and thigh slapping skills. Club rules dictate that members are only allowed to slap their own thighs, of course, but this did not detract from some very entertaining performances. Good to see them both again – and to know that several BFC members have carried out cultural exchanges to their home club in St Neots.

Dame Maggie of Kempston was flying solo this week, and made a great job of it too! Free from the shackles of Still Seeking, she was able to express her innermost feelings, with such songs as Dolly P's "I will always love you", and the delightful "Come away, Bonnie my love". Not quite sure what emotional turmoil lay behind "Worried man blues", but we all joined in with Gusto (who had walked in with Calvert, just before the break).

Said Calvert had brought a very thick tome of all his songs, and on looking round the room, came to the inspired conclusion that his ideal choice to sing this week would be "Eden was just like this" – which he did.

I was the only person in the room not to know that harmonica genius Roger's first song "Passing through" was one of the cheerier Cohen creations, with a touch of gospel for good measure. The title of his second rendition "Takes a lot to laugh, takes a train to cry" by Mr Dylan, is nearly as long as the song itself. It went down very well, along with a 12-bar accompaniment from Mel to my left, which gave me at least, a very pleasing stereo effect. Roger's version of "The dark-eyed sailor" also had a moody feel to it, which took it out of the league of the common or garden "broken token" song.

Once again using their i-songs device to great effect, Suzie and Mike gave us the female version of "House of the Rising Sun" (a Chinese takeaway in Lowestoft, apparently). "You ain't going nowhere" – which Mike kindly told us was very simple in G, Am and C – was not taken as a threat to the audience, but as a cue to join in, which all did. We then meandered through "Country roads", but not before a delightful skit entitled "Oh no, not the Fields of Athenry" – apparently another East Coast (Suffolk) favourite.
This provoked some discussion, with Ann Mullings bravely suggesting that the F of A is a lovely song, and both Clive and Maggie – being of the Irish persuasion – confirming that said fields had little landscape value and certainly no nearby harbour. Yes, I was a bit confused by that, too.

The long trip round the room eventually reached Ann whose "Carrickfergus" on keyboard was a delight as always, and only marginally surpassed by a really lovely song, which I think was called "Green fields" – new to me, but a real pleasure to close the eyes and listen to. Ann was magnanimous in her refusal of an offer to complete the 3rd circle, and close the night for us – with the typical generosity of one who also has to watch the time when running the Barton club.

So, what of our Cotswold cousins, Cressida and Bob? They had broken their journey to the Broadstairs Folk Week, to visit friends and family in Bedford, and delighted we all were to see them. They remain in rude health, which was also good to see, clearly the harsh Winchcombe winters have done them no harm at all. Their music also continues to thrive, and before the break, Cressida displayed her ukulele skills accompanying them both on Woodie Guthrie's "Goin' down the road feelin' bad". In the second half, Cressida gave us "As I was going to Banbury", and Bob expressed his thanks to another of our foreign exports, Steve Parkes, who had given him the words to "Ratcliffe Highway", which he performed with his usual glee! A real delight to see them again, and we wish them well.

So there you have it. Another fine example of what makes the BFC such a tonic – good friends, good songs and good humour. You're welcome to join us for another dose next week!

BEDFORD FOLK CLUB – Notes on a meeting on 15th August 2013.

We turned up in force again to celebrate the Bedford Folk Club and Home for the Bewildered's latest edition of Kempston's Got Talent to several revelations.

According to the Clubmeister we are going to be on television (not so much Transatlantic Sessions as Transit Van) and after a barrage of Medical Tests and scans, Mike B is apparently to be delivered of a baby boy in the Autumn. Shock news indeed as most of us have never been on television.

Anyway.

The old chap was in fine form having recently restrung his guitar and still being able to fit it on his lap. He started off with "Jack Ashton" but before he got halfway through the first chorus departed, guitar in hand, to the bar to remonstrate with some young hussies who were getting over-excited. Then he returned and continued to sing with us, all suitably cowed into submission at this fine display of machismo. He also gave us contributions from Carole King and Loudon W the 3 before a sublime rendition of Wee Ralphie's beautiful "Nana's Song" or Streets of Paris as it will become known.

I on the other hand was hell-bent on frivolity and displaying my musical virtuosity with guitar, bouzar (I have a new toy) and tin sandwich. Musicality won on penalties and I retired hurt under the ICC's new "no runners" rule. (There was I thinking it was a Guitouki – Sub-Ed).

David (no longer from Barton) had some good songs as usual, including one about a woman who removed her wooden leg and used it as a fiddle (I think). I'm not absolutely sure as things were beginning to get blurry by then and David had been subject to a severe geographical telling-off by the lovely Ann M, of whom more later.

Chris gave us two meteorological poems – "Wind" and "A Rainy Day" – one of which was by Longfellow but I'm not sure which; and newcomer and Scout Master Angus delighted us with an archetypal British folk song (bawdy and funny) called "The Old Bachelor". Great stuff.

Charles' death count was very low indeed with only one person croaking and that before the song started. He did have a nice song called "Nowt about Owt" which had more euphemisms than Kenneth Williams in his heyday.

There followed a discussion of Kenneth W's Carry On catchphrases with Maggie giving an absolutely perfect impersonation of him, but I digress.

And so on to Ann M and daughter Omega. Breathtaking harmonies after Ann got the key from what looked like a portable sphygmomanometer. I honestly could have listened to their voices all night. It was quite beautiful - especially Cole Porter's "Every time we say goodbye" which was as good as Ella's in my opinion. (Couldn't agree more – totally sublime – Sub-Ed).

A first-half George-less Maggie and Roy did a lovely rendition of "Caledonia" before being joined by the aforementioned hirsute person to give a couple of songs the Still Seeking stamp of approval. Maggie really got into "The Carnival is Over". It was fun to watch as well as hear.

Bad Boy NotBeardyManAnyMore Karl had John Denver's "Eclipse" and "The Baltimore Fire" for us, before presenting us with a song that everyone but I knew. Can't remember what it was called or who it was by. ("Barratts Privateers" by the brilliant Stan Rogers – Sub-Ed).

After a visit by Rob (back from foreign parts) with, among other songs, Ray Davis' wonderful "Sunny Afternoon", we all steeled ourselves for an assault from Calvert who had crept in without anyone noticing. He gave us "Song sung Blue" very nicely.

Then as a climax to the evening we all joined in with the Great Sam (fresh from thrashing Russia on his own) on "When Joneses Ale was new" and "The Mountains of Mourne".

All in all a great way to spend a few hours on a Thursday evening. We'll do it again next week and it would be even better if you were there too.

OMFG, as I believe the kids would say.

What the hell are you people doing to me? I'm sitting in my office, barely able to focus on the laptop screen. So far everything that has been said to me has had to be repeated a number of times and judging by the looks I'm getting, my responses aren't making much sense. Someone asked me something about drugs earlier.

Last night at The Plough... Something happened. I try to recall details but... well, you knnow that thing where one's mind blocks out traumatic episodes? Well, that.

Barknuckle Graham sent me a text this morning estimating more than 20 players plus another 5 or so who couldn't find the room to participate. I vaguely remember DADGAD John and meself trying to tally it up at the end of the evening, but kind of entering a state of increasing uncertainty. I know some sessions get more than that, but probably not many of them are crammed into such a small pub quite so far from civilisation.

The shambles charged on, relentlessly until... I don't know, 1am? 1.30?

We basically had another pitch invasion from Dunstable/Totternhoe. A huge, mob (basically a mobile birthday party for Weak Bladder Boy Simon the Cello).

There was cake. I remember cake. I don't think I ate any, but I remember treading on some.

With the most ginormous apologies to all, I'm not even going to attempt a full listing of perpetrators. If anyone who was present would care to provide that information I'd be grateful. To be honest I'm not sure which of the people I remember being there were actually there last night and which are fragments of memory from previous sessions.

Please excuse me now. I don't feel very well.

From Colin, Mary and meself, thank you so much to every last one of you mad bastards. We love you all.

And a very, very happy birthday to Simon. Cheers, dude!

Cowabunga, dudes.

This evening is the appalling shambles and insult to good taste that is THE PLOUGH, Ley Green acoustic session.

Situated between Luton and Hitchin, The Plough enjoys stunning views out over woods and farmland (which you'll have no chance of seeing because it'll be dark).

Oh, and when I was in at the weekend Colin had Doombar on. I'm hoping that my piss-head next-door neighbour hasn't drunk it all.

Anyone who knows what "clockwise" means is very welcome.

The Barton group meet on Wednesday 11th December at The Waggon & Horses, starting at 8.30 pm as usual. As it's our last night before Christmas some of you may feel like singing or playing carols although this is by no means obligatory!

It would be good to see you all, but if you can't make it on the 11th please note that the next session will be on Wednesday 8th January 2014.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Tonight is The Plough, Ley Green. All welcome.

Perhaps more importantly, our mate Kenny, who has been a supporter of The Plough session since the very first soiree, is leaving us and going back to Scotland.

Kenny is an obsessive folkie, and a great man for tradition. He is a rabid champion of Scottishness, and a great character. We're really going to miss him.

This coming Saturday 22nd Feb we're having a wee going-away party for him at The Plough. If any acoustic/folkie types fancy joining us on Saturday to see him off we'd be very grateful.

My fallback position will be MP3s of Scottish music... Not really ideal!

I am very sorry to have to report the passing of Dave Smith, who died on Sunday, aged 87. Those of you who have pre Sun memories of Hitchin Folk Club will remember David as the gentle, ruddy faced man who sat at the door and took the money. He had helped out at the Talisman from when Maureen took over, calling in at the club room on his way home from Church to put the chairs out, ready for the evening. He also helped run the Stevenage Folk Club for many years. He was a lovely man and we will miss him.
