Latest update: me and Mr.Fromull have been doing some pretty intensive research at the Black Boy 'ull today.

We are delighted to report that the BB is up and running under the very capable auspices of Adam the new gaffer.The quality of the real ale is excellant and varied.The new gaffer is well up for sessions on the first Monday of the month.

Pippa phoned me tonight with the news. Any 'catters suffering session withdrawal symptoms welcome over the river at the Six Bells session in Barrow on Humber, every Tuesday, tomorrow (4th August) included. It's a very friendly mixed session, not at all cliquey, no bosses, just mutual respect and love of the music.

Black Boy is still closed, as far as we know, so there's no session there until further notice. If it stays closed we could consider asking the Minerva, when that reopens. Good Real Ale, view of the Humber, nice room (the former micro-brewery), entry in the Guinness Book of Records, plenty of parking...

Of course, it will depend on the landlord but I'm sure the extra takings on a Monday night will help his balance sheet.

Latest news seems to suggest that someone who has been involved with the pub in the past is taking it over. Maybe we will know more in April.
Minerva was still closed when I walked past last week. What a shame.!

I remember having some very good nights in the Black Boy. Hope things work out ok. The pub Les mentioned, "The George" down The Land Of Green Ginger, has also had some very good music sessions in upto about 3 years ago. Would be good to have them going in there again and the real ale is excellent.

Its a shame its a great pub. Les, I think Hessle would be a good place to move to. Bassic and I also approached the Hase when we set the session up. As all our young folkies seem to be in Hessle maybe we should restablish it at the Hase.

That's very sad news. I used to drink there myself many years ago and, as the following clip from The Hull Packet and Advertiser March 7th 1834 shows, my family have been patrons of the pub for generations. The gentleman mentioned is my great x5 grandfather:

"John Thompson Master of the Sloop Dunn was found drowned in the Old Harbour.
The vessel was tied up at Chapel Lane staithe. George North publican of the Black Boy said the deceased had been in his pub worse for drink the previous night. He had been warned against returning to his boat, the night being so windy. His body was found in the Old Harbour having received a severe blow to the head. The body was removed to the Black Boy Public House. Verdict Accidental Death."

At least they took him back to the pub - it was probably his round!

Five weeks is about all we've got, bloke! So it seems that the next session (Monday April 6th 8pm) could very well be the last in the Black Boy. Unless, that is, someone wants to take over the lease. Otherwise it will stand as an empty monument to changing drinking patterns, the credit crunch, the smoking ban, property companies who are ruining our pubs, whatever.

So we may very well have a discussion as to where we will move the session to. If we want to stay in the Old Town we could ask at the George in Land of Green Ginger, which is also run by Dean, who provides all those nice snacks we have at the Black Boy. It's a nice old coaching inn, with one of the best addresses in the country, and the smallest window anywhere in the known universe. Or the Wellington, where we go for the other two sessions.

Additionally it will again transfer the Hull Elderly Gentlemen's Afternoon Binge Drinking Club.

Will it just close? It seems strange they would let a premises like that stand idle, costing money. Maybe a new, folk-orientated owner will take it over, with free beer for the musos, sushi and oysters for free snacks and a free bus at the end of the night....
Ok, let's make the best of it, see you two weeks today. Or is closure more imminent?

Latest news is - we could be losing the Black Boy as a pub. The current landlord is giving up the license as he can't make it pay, and the owners - Enterprise Inns - won't let him make any changes to make the place more profitable, or sell him the leasehold. Another great pub and one that has hosted folk music sessions for over 30 years will soon close. Damn you, Enterprise Inns!

Do any of you in Hull know Denny who used to be friends with the scavengers. last I heard many years ago he went off to japan with a concertina player.

Tell him lox was asking after him if you see him, and see if he can figure out what lox is an abbreviation for. He might have better luck remembering me if he knew that I used to own a didge in E.

He knew my brother better than me, but we had a few good times nonetheless, in hull sessions as well as around glastonbury campfires.

I remember him well and wouldn't mind getting back in touch

Hello Michael, how splendid to hear from you. Hope you and the present Mrs McGarry are keeping well. I did come seeking you one afternoon in Whitby in that Endeavour, but I think you were having a lay down. I combined power drinking and playing me aerophone in that Tap & Spile the night before, and woke up on someone's chaise longue with a sore head and a gyppy tummy.
