I'm hoping to start a proper folk club here in BC, Shropshire. Few floor singers and local artists (if we can collect enough money!)We have a lot of really good performers in this neck of the woods and we don't have a platform for them.

Don't know what night of the month yet,or where, but am open to ideas.

I'm told that The 6 Bells is intended to become a free for all music sesh rather than a singaround, so that people can drink, play and talk, rather that being 'hushed' so that a singer can be heard. What a pity, never mind, we'll have to start a singaround in the 3 Tuns on another night for we folks who like to sing.

Me too - have to stay in and listen to the radio on a Sunday!

By the way, just in case anybody was going to the Belshazzars Feast gig at Lydbury North tonight, don't bother 'cos it's off.

There is, however, a concert by the Helen Chadwick Group, 'A Song in my Foot' at Wem Village Hall tonight. 'Songs, stories and heady rhythms inspired by south America'

More details here along with lots of other stuff happening in the county.

I posted this earlier...'The once a month session at the 6 Bells isn't what it used to be, as with quite a few around here.    A week night or Sunday night, when Keith isn't cooking, might be a solution. The Friday night used to be popular because most people didn't have to go to work the next day. I don't know why it isn't anymore. I'll run it during the week if no one else wants to do it. Which night, when? Any ideas?'

And this is an E mail I have received...
Sunday Folk Night at The Six Bells, Bishop's Castle

Hi Folks!

As you may have heard, Chris Vowles has decided not to continue running
the Friday Folk Night at The Six Bells.

Most of you will know the problems caused on Friday nights by the number
of diners in the room and the less than sympathetic attitude of the C..
C.. C.. Caterer running the kitchen franchise.

Nev the landlord is sympathetic and wants the Folk Night to continue but
he will not intervene to sort out the Friday night problem.

So a small number of us have agreed to restart the Folk Night but we
have decided to move it from the last Friday to the SECOND SUNDAY in the
month.

We realise that Sunday nights are not ideal for everybody but it does
have the major benefit of being FOOD FREE (with the exception of crisps,
and Pringles etc) as the C.. C.. C.. Caterer does not open the kitchen
on Sunday nights.

The first date for the new Sunday night will be this coming Sunday i.e.
the 12th at approx eight o clock - please make a note in your diary.

Please come along and support your local pub or, if it's not your local,
please come along and support MY local pub.

For Info call : Ian - 01588 638375   or JP - 01588 630015

So there you are then!

It was one of those nights that made me think no two sessions are alike, which is one of the reasons we like going so much.
Dave is always good fun - such a varied repertoire - Geordie to Copperhead Road!
Dik Cameron is very professional - I probably wouldn't particularly choose to go to a gig, but there's no question that he added a lot to last night's session.
It was a good night but it was a bit lacking in leadership, there were too many periods of silence between songs where everybody was being much too polite to start without being asked.
That long song? Sir Hubert Vayne? I've known it for years but someone reminded me of it recently. I could say that if I can remember the story I can remember the words, or I could say that if I pick a song nobody can remember nobody knows if I cock it up!

Well Watson, what did you think of last night then? I thought it was brilliant. Dangerous Dave and Dick Cadbury were music to my ears and Nonny's rendition of Summertime always makes me weak at the knees. She does the best version I have ever heard. Hot, sweaty and laid back! How on earth do remember all of the words to that long song you did?

Those that didn't go last night, really missed out.

There are all sorts of things going on in Shropshire -

11 Nov - Bishop's Castle Community College, Shropshire
Coope, Boyes and Simpson - Armistice Day performance of 'In Flanders Fields'
Eye-witness accounts, contemporary poetry and songs specially commissioned for the town of Passchendaele's Peace Concerts bring home the humour and courage of those who took part in the War to end all Wars.

16 Dec – Walcott Hall, Lydbury North, Bishops Castle
Coope Boyes & Simpson, Fi Fraser, Jo Freya, Georgina Boyes
'Fire and Sleet and Candlelight...'
Words and music from a traditional Christmas

With bands of Carollers and Wassail songs, tales of Poachers and Ghosts - and hospitable customs like Mumping and Clementing, the Winter season was a time of fireside celebration and travellers' voices at the door. A combination of traditional stories, customs and carols from the English countryside provides an ususual view of local life at Christmas past and present.

Ale and wine bar, a great atmosphere in deepest and most beautiful South Shropshire and it's only going to set you back £8.00!

Well, surprise surprise, I don't agree with you - although it depends on your definition of a session to an extent.

I think that one of three things will happen - it will stop; it will be 'run' collectively with whoever happens to be in the chair on the night playing the 'MC' (for want of a better term) - as already happens pretty successfully at at least one local venue; the venue and whole nature of the thing will change to become more structured, and somebody is already talking about trying that out.

Personally, I favour the second option and I hope that's the way it goes. I have neither the time or inclination to take it on, particularly in the way you interpret it, although I don't mind doing my bit, as you know.

Gotta go - more in PM if you like.

I only volunteered because HE was showing signs of not wanting to 'run it' anymore. He never wanted to 'run it' very much in the first place.

'Running it' means making phone calls to chivvy people into coming. *Being diplomatic with the land lord and the chef. Being the person that the landlord can talk to incase of any problems etc. Printing posters and contacting the local newspapers, libraries and music magazines to advertise the 'session'. Some one has to take on that responsibility and sometimes financial outlay.

*So, Trevor, maybe you are the one to sort out things with Keith?

I find it strange that some pubs seem to look on sessions as a hindrance while others look on them as an asset.
The landlord of the Grove at Walcot asked us to start a session there. We are always made very welcome - they even feed us - there's usually more food than we can eat.
The session is well attended and regulars at the pub look forward to it. People who would never otherwise listen to folk music have a great time.
In light of discussion in other threads, I should make it clear it's a mixed session, tunes and songs fairly evenly balanced.
...and by the way - it's tomorrow night!

I think that the general consensus is that there are enough people who are happy to 'run' it (whatever that means) from amongst the regulars, hence what I said about turning up in September.

Most of the regulars want to continue to have a session (although it sounds like you have a different definition of that word to me!) on a Friday, preferably at The Bells. We just need to either sort things out with Keith or keep going despite the difficulties - Nev won't mind either way.

We may also have a couple of new venues close by - more later.

Sorry about the tardy reply.

There seem to be differences with Keith, who has the franchise for scoff at The Bells. He needs to be serving his diners when we want to be doing our stuff. It came to a bit of a head in May when, contrary to the agreement that Chris thought he had (Keith wouldn't take diners after 8.30), a big party started their meal at a quarter to nine. Personally, I don't see the problem - we worked hard, they joined in and a good time was had by (nearly) all. Anyway, Chris has had enough, Neville, the landlord, doesn't want to get involved, so it's all a bit up in the air.

I think we'll be turning up at the end of September to see what happens.

I was thinking about the 'hijacked session' thread. There have been a few issues lately that make me wonder why co-existence causes so many people problems. What a waste of energy it is, getting on a high horses.

I can't be arsed to be as charming, witty and persuasive as Sal!
