Saturday 3rd May 2014
The Folk Club was invited this year to the Upton upon Severn Folk Festival and We had a great time. We had a steady stream of great singers and musicians for the folk club on Saturday evening. Marc Block & Milli Galgut, and Dave & Trish Collins helped us out with this, so huge thanks to them and to everyone who came along.
Marc and Dave also entered songs into The John Birmingham Cup competition. Dave Collins was runner up, and will be taking his song to the competition final at Whitby Festival in the summer. Marc's song was also very well received and would almost certainly have won had it been an audience vote.
Dave, Julie and Phil also led two Christmas carols sessions over the weekend. We weren't sure how people would take to singing Christmas songs in May, but we needn't have worried, the songs were greeted with great enthusiasm, and there was some fantastic singing from the assembled multitudes (or should that be sacred throng?).
A great weekend, and we've been asked back again next year!
