Yes Sir Col K but we have a bit of a difference of oppinion about the dates at the moment. I would like it to be the week before Alcester but others in Bishop's Castle would like THE weekend of Alcester. Personally I don't think this is a very good idea. What do you think?Would we lose a lot of people to Alcester? Answers please.

Is that the 6 Bells that brews its own beer and was one of the host pubs for the Bishops Castle Folk Weekend earlier this year.
Can we have another one?

May I remind those that live near and in Shropshire, that this Friday 25th October is 6 Bells night. It's every 4th Friday of the month and it's here again! Chris is away in Italy so I s'pose I'm in the 'chair'.

I find my vacuum cleaner is Bflat, which is a great starting note for me with a few songs. I practice most of my songs when I vacuum. ......and yes Trev I do sometimes, cos I've got a blonde dog and a dark red carpet!

Thursdays are good, we don't go to anything (except Much Dewchurch in Herefordshire)on a Thursday.

Trevor, I've heard Robin Williamson take his pitch from a generator at a festival, so I thought I'd try it with a slot machine.

And the slot machine, which was next to my right ear, was humming in the same key as your Spanish song. Are machines taking over the world?

Spanish? Was I singing in Spanish? ...well bugger me. Had I been drinking?
I don't know why Vin didn't play. I'm sure someone would have lent him a guitar. Perhaps he's too shy to ask.
Friday is indeed a good suggestion in a hair letting down kind of a way, but there's already more going on on Fridays than any other night of the week - mainly folk clubs as opposed to sessions, but a lot of competition for folkies nevertheless.

Watson:
I really had a good time last night. Your Spanish song took a bit of working out. Why didn't Vinny play anything?

Anyway I'm glad to hear you're going to make it a regular thing but please not a Wednesday night. A Friday would be good then we can really let our hair down(those with any left that is!!)and we can all sleep in on the Saturday.

Yes, it was good, wasn't it - although I did think Rapsquillion were far too professional for the rest of us.
Talking to the John the landlord afterwards, he was very pleased with the evening's entertainment, so he'd like it to happen again. We need to decide whether Thursday is the best night for everyone, but we are heading for something regular.
Must remember not to have anything to eat before we come out next time - there will be food provided again.

The Cock at Brocton Nr. Worthen tonight, and every 3rd Wednesday.

Why can't it be called a Cockerel? Cock seems so awfully rude to me!

Tee hee

There's a session at the Grove Inn at Walcot (near the sugar beet factory)on Thursday 17 October.
It's a one-off for now, but it may be regular if it goes down well.
Singers and musicians are welcome.

Col K: I can't come to Banbury I'm afraid - it's Charlotte's birthday that weekend.

The 6 Bells went well. All the diners stayed and listened so the room was packed. There was a great poet from Tenbury. I hope he comes again. Also a newcomer to the folk world, Chris' next door neighbour, she plays flute beatifully.

The next is 25th October.

The power of two ( people that is ) how surprising that you are using the 6 Bells with all that good ale you promised me.

I'll claim it sometime, meanwhile start saving Trevor. Are either you or Mrs Lemon coming to Banbury if you do I'll see you there.

All the best

Yea OK so that's an advert. He's also a brill fiddle player and singer too.
