Nah then Raggytash

The Tap and Spile singaround is famous Worldwide and certainly mentioned in dispatches as being one of the very best singing sessions in the UK ~ rivalling Sidmouth singarounds

Visit the Tap and you will be astounded at the folkie famous who drop in even Malcolm Storey has been known to visit

Nowadays I tend to drop in and out, as the room gets far too full,
I don't doubt the merits of other happening during the week and of course it is each to his own for enjoyment

You will of course find me singing every where I feel inclined and musicians and singers always seem to go their own way

Booker and me have been attending some 35 years and spent many hours encouraging other singers to sing

We have seen people come and go in many different ways and are left with many memories

The pastime is painless and enjoyable and long may it be so, PELs
and beauracy permitting

I am not there for self centred reasons,and many years I haven't been able to get into the Friday finale; I like to listen and have done so at very many singarounds throughout the country, as well as taking my turn

I do not however believe in rudderless singarounds and free for alls in open pub rooms, Mcing is difficult to maintain democracy

Such a room is the singers room at the Tap, now in the capable hands of Judy Knight helped by the likes of Jim McDonald, Ken Johnson, Maggie, Rob and a few others who know how to run such happenings
