Subject: Folk at the Oak! (Kent)
From: melodeonboy
Date: 13 Feb 07 - 09:24 AM

Growler (aka Simon Barlow) and I are organising a folk afternoon (singaround style) at the Tudely Oak pub at Tudely, near Tonbridge. The landlord, John, is very supportive and is likely to lay on some extra beers (although the range of beers as it stands is already quite good).

We've set a provisional date of Sunday, 20th May, intending it to run from about midday to late afternoon/early evening.

I've tried to avoid any clashes with other folk events, and to leave a breathing space both after the Sweeps Festival and before the Kentish Horse weekend.

Any feedback on who's likely to come, the suitability of the provisional date etc. would be useful.

Growler will also be posting soon with information on a folk and beer weekend at the Good Intent, Rochester, to be held in June.

errr? slightly confused with what's been posted above.

Will there be a session in tudely on the 20th of May? And the Good Intent - is that the one in West Farleigh? BTW for train folk tudely is near paddock wood (or tonbridge I suppose) - about two miles as the crow flies and three by road.

If so two sessions south of the medway must be some sort of record for the mid/westkent session desert that I inhabit.

Lovely afternoon, wish we'd got there earlier but had chores to do. What a nice pub & Fab Landlord!! Good company, music & beer, one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. Well done for organising this!!

Richard Bridge: Sorry I missed saying goodbye to you, just wanted to say how I enjoyed your Reynardine!

Good to meet you Synbyn, looking forward to listening to more of your songs and maybe trying one or two myself!

Well met all, keep the Cat posted on more doings & we'll try to get along - earlier next time perhaps.....

Sorry I had to leave earlier than I wanted but Jan's case of shingles came first.
As MGAS said what a lovely pub and landlords. Even if I was drinking shandies :-( I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and it was an honour to be able to sing one of synbyn's songs when the great man was there.I look forward to the next one, and of course to the visit of the 'Shiny Bum Singers' at the Good Intent, Rochester next weekend.

Thread creep setting in. I am surprised you can get shingles more than once. I had it once a while ago (as did Jacqui's mother) and was under the impression that altough you could in theory get it in nerves that were NOT previously affected, even that was unlikely.

Thank you Guru. I will never have the technical excellence of your singing, so have to get by on passion!

Well, next time I'll try and get there earlier! Commiserations to Jan- Dungeness can take a long time to get over, hope she makes a quick recovery. A whole case was too many, perhaps? Thanks for the lift, guru! Look forward to seeing you both at other sessions- and enjoyed Bugger Bognor as a former inhabitant...
Oh and I probably ought to start a definitive thread- Richard, as far as I know I've not spoken to Julia Winn, though of course I read her jottings- the herbalist definitely isn't her. You'd be surprised how many people come up and say 'I know someone like that'... I just put together as many new-age whims as I could fit into two verses!
So great session, and thanks for organising it, MB- hope the gig went well in the evening. See y'all

Silly fellow Woodsie. Fisheye can often be tapped up for an outing, and it would have been nice to see George again too. I suspect the Leopards could have put you in the boot, too. Cosy in there, it would have been, with the great Kenneth Ingham and we could have done A minor (not A flat minor, or rather several flat miners, I didn't sing that this time) before the Barden of England left.

Actually Woodsie, we ought to try to arrange a common (ie shared, not South London) version of Signed DC, and maybe some other great Love classics, to assist them on their way to becoming folk songs...

That and the Fish's "Who am I?"

I didn't think it could come back either Richard, but they are in a different place so it can I suppose. She's also susceptable to 'Cold Sores' and these are very similar to them, but the quack insists it's shingles. She's not gone to work this morning as it's hurting so we'll see how it goes.
Bob - love the reference to 'Dungeness' - must be a song in there somewhere!!
As to the Am song - no Dave Kenningham there to demand a rendition so I got away with it.
Hillary - I just wished I could have stayed to hear your lovely voice again. Have a great time at Bude next week, and hug both Georges for me, and of course the lovely Shirley.

Passion you most certainly have Richard and you can definitely give a song power and presence too. Really enjoyed it, keep up the good work. BTW, forgot to thank you for your bodhran on Mary Mack, great stuff! Just wish I'd lubricated the throat properly so there weren't so many *insert own choice of description of problematical areas* in it!! I can usually sail through it after a few pints, but had only imbibed the one, a lesson learnt *grin*

Sir Barden, bless you! Will ensure plenty of hugs passed round to all & sundry at Bude and that the Port & Cheese is suitably taken care of!

Sounds like I missed a great afternoon, but at least I've got the rest of my garden back now. It took 2 hours to get the boat out and on the road, still more room for the BBQ!! 1st July, and 10 gallons of beer to get through!!

As long as it's not the weekend of the Deal Maritime (Usually 3rd weekend in September) which is probably 14th, 15th and 16th - nor the same time as the Knockholt September bash - which I hope is the previous weekend (but that needs confirming), nor the weekend before that which is Fylde Folk Festival - then fine. Oh what a busy life!!!

Thanks to everyone for coming on Sunday; it was a great afternoon. The landlord is keen to have us back and has suggested September. We'll obviously try to avoid clashes with other events if possible.

And don't forget the next session hosted by Ruff 'n' Reddy: this coming Sunday (27th) at the Good Intent in Rochester, starting at middayish, and featuring special guests, The Shiny Bum Singers from Australia (more information on other threads).

Folk At The Oak is back again!

John, the landlord, is very supportive of this event and would like to see it continue (as would I), so it'd be good to see as many of you as possible on Sunday, 11th November at The Tudeley Oak in Tudeley, near Tonbridge. We'll start at midday and carry on till about five; or even later, who knows? It'll be hosted by Ruff 'n' Reddy.

I don't think it'll be combined with a beer festival this time but there'll still be plenty of good beer. The last time I was in there, he had Harvey's, Larkin's and one other, the name of which escapes me.

To save you scrolling up, the postcode is TN11 0NT.

Put it in your diaries!

Alturnatly to the above I can get guests on board the HMS Belfast(MAX 3)so we could all attend the on board service.Hit the ward room afterwards for a couple of tots of Nelsons blood and then get underway to the Oak? There,s only one problem with this and that is tearing oneself away from the drink up on board ship. If this appeals then please let me know so I can make the nessessary arrangement.

Sunday.
I have spoken to the Chief Yeoman and he said that it is ok to come on board ship on Sunday 11th October for the rememberence day service, but he has stressed that due to incresed numbers of other guests and a dutch naval vessel alongside Belfast and its crew in attendence me and my guests may have to go up to 3 deck and view the proceedings from the platform deck by x turret(Aft 6inch gun) Bloody par-larva. You would think theyre give me the grace to be on the quarter deck like I have for the last 7 years. Send the dutch boys up aloft I say?

Thanks very much for that piece of Historic info John. I shall look up me history re those events. I shall remind the Dutchies on the ship along side Hms Belfast of this dastardly action in the drink up on board after the service.(only jokiing) Some Dutchies have shore leave so we might take a few in tow to the Oak with us have a few Dutchie shanties

(I imagine Fort Amhurst and all the little Medway forts were constucted in haste afterwards in order to prevent such attacks reocuring in fuiture?
