GUEST,Some bloke What is your session like? (95* d) RE: What is your session like? 31 Mar 17


Wow.. lots of sessions with rules around here.

We get upwards of thirty people most weeks including audience and the banter between regulars seems as popular as the music. "What shall I do, I wonder?" "Bugger off home, tha's crap." Etc. We also have the Ed Sheeran / Sandi Thome effect. Quite a few teenagers and twenty somethings writing songs, improving by the week and that's great to see. Some even take a polite interest in my trad songs (or have learned how to humour me.)

Mind you, keeping it acoustic seems to be by default although we haven't invented rules or anything as daft as that. Save rules for committees of pigeon fanciers associations.

The nearest thing to a rule I suppose was when numbers got too large for everyone to sit where they are and play so we went back to a stage area and two songs at a time. That way we ensure more music, less shifting around and if people travel a long way to come (some do) more chance of getting a few songs rather than one or two.
