Subject: RE: BBC4 Christmas Session
Admit it, it was B**** dire. Very shaky start indeed and one bad song led to another. It was only Sam Lee that gave me hope. And then after a fairly ropey start the wonderful Belshasars feast turned the whole show around. Suddenly the audience seemed to relax and enjoy themselves. The unthanks found their voices. (I did enjoy daddies little Tar Barrel song by the way.)With the lighht hearted now in full flood some great clogging and a finale of songs well worthy of the memory of Sidmouth and Chippenhan Old Time Music halls, it scraped through.
Not a patch on the excellent Clogging Programme or the equally worthwhile Still Dancing, but taken as a whole a good few nights entertainment.
Oh, I better own up, I enjoyed "Morris, a life with bells on" too!
