Singaround and Music Session
Sunday February 16th 2014
Another evening of great variety at the Poppy Folk Club! From English traditional, through a monologue, contemporary folk songs, self-penned songs and tunes, to blues, jazz and a smattering of pop - the evening had pretty much everything!
It's great to see so many people making the club a regular part of their lives now, and so many new faces coming to give us a try. We had a first time song from Janet (John Kanakanaka) and songs from Jeff and Maureen - also first time visitors I think. Rick, Steve and Phil - who have recently started coming to the club - had put together a few songs as a trio; and newly formed band 'The Strawberry Jammers' performed a couple of extended spots that were great fun. The 'Jammers are a four piece band featuring Poppy regular Jim Helliwell, and played a selection of sing-along folk and blues favourites.
Many thanks to all who came along and performed, and to those who came just to listen - you gave us a splendid evening!
