THURSDAY: Post-Xmas Escape musical meeting, jointly with The Doghouse Music Session
At the kind invitation of The Doghouse Music Sessions musicans, we again join forces for an opportunity to escape the ghastly relatives or other tribulations of this period of excess. This is their postponed Xmas Day session. Burn off a few calories by joining in with, or leading, some songs (poss. seasonal, poss. not: who knows?*) and/or playing along with (as your musical skills allow) or just tapping your feet to, invigorating tunes courtesy of Nic Bradford (guitar), Cath Watkins (fiddle) and whoever else of their usual contingent is not too bladdered to turn out for some spirited music-making. On an ad hoc basis, some of the numbers will be more Focsle Music style: a more obvious "lead" singer with others providing improvised backing harmonies. You could even persuade said relatives (if they're not TOO ghastly), to join us, perhaps exposing them to the joys of acoustic music for the first time, while swelling the numbers (and the sound?)
If there's a raffle, bet it will be extra good, loaded with unwanted presents as prizes ;-) [Cynical, moi?]
* strictly, if you turn up to perform, YOU do!
