Songs and Music night - February 2018.
Poppy singaround and music nights usually produce a good selection of traditional and contemporary songs, a range of singing styles, and a variety of instruments. With a few of our regular instrumentalists unable to make it tonight we were more reliant than usual on singer-guitarists, but there was still plenty of variety and skill on display, and a few pleasant surprises, to add up to a very nice night.
Singing and playing tonight were Trevor Marriott, Ian Price, Ian Buchanan, Jenny Bell, Tim Block, Marc Block, James Strawbridge, Helen Morris, Chris Morris, Stephen & Julie Wigley, CPA, Samir, and (first-timer at the club) Dorothy Plater. Returning to the Poppy, but this time in the duo ‘The Way Out’ with Autumn, was guitarist and singer Chris Chambers – a very nice sound! From the Poppy Team were Dave Walters, Juliet Woodin and Allison Turner.
Well done to Dave Walters for running the singaround splendidly in the absence of Phil and Julie. Thanks also to Tom and Mary for helping out on the night, and to the several people who joined us to just listen and enjoy the evening.
