Fluvanna County High School, Virginia held what they called a Coffeehouse event in the school cafeteria way back in 1996 or 97. And again in early 2000's. Attracted both students and parents to perform as well as a good audience. Comprised of songs from 60's up to then current as well as poetry and dramatic readings, jazz trio, and sundry stuff.

Tom, it might be a pretty cool to put together a teaching show and send out to schools in the UK. Your story telling (song descriptions) ability is strong and engaging. Ever consider looking at QCA curriculum and teachernet and taking a bash at writing some lesson plans to go with your show? Or adapting your some of your descriptions to compliment current curriculum?

Just a couple of ideas.
