Singaround and Music Session
Singaround and Music Session

What could be better than a pleasant evening with friends, playing music and singing songs? This was our last singaround night of the year - but don't forget our Christmas concert with the lovely Sarah Matthews and Doug Eunson on December 12th!

Poppy singarounds are always delightfully varied and unpredictable, and this time we had everything from traditional folk, through blues, music hall, and classic pop, to contemporary songs and songwriters.

Wil Walker topped and tailed the evening with lively jigs and reels on fiddle, as well as accompanying Jenny Bell on her own songs. We had solo songs from Trevor Marriott, David Nicholson-Cole, Alan Price (no, not that Alan Price!), Chris Morris, Dave Stephens and Dave Walters, as well as some great guitar playing and singing from Stanley (the musical pint puller!). Duos and groups included Dave Quick and Andy Cooper, Samir Goswami and Rick Dizon, the aforementioned Jenny and Wil, and, of course, our resident band AJAR (Ally, Juliet and Rick).

We got around the room twice, with the duos and groups getting and extra go, and had a nice cluster of folks who came along to listen and support the performers. A very friendly crowd all round - thank you one and all!

Event starts 7:30pm
