Despite our programme being in deficit to the tune of one guest night [see what I did, there?], I couldn't fix a replacement in time, so FOCSLE Music will run singaround-style tonight. Your seasonal musical / spoken-word offerings welcome (unless you want to keep them a surprise to spring on folks at our Xmas Party next week). Non-seasonal pieces equally acceptable: a mixed menu is a good thing.
Usual singaround format: songs, tunes, spoken word pieces delivered in turn by each perfomer present, until the break, when we run our raffle. This has a wine or beer prize, and [usually] confectionery, or another alternative (CDs/books, etc.), depending on attendance. Then we do the music, etc., bit all over again — with different songs & stuff [obviously] :-) What you get, musically, hangs entirely on who turns up, how good they are, and what they choose to deliver (those with wide repertoires may accept a 'request', or two).
