Well, a longer session of course! We now have access to the hall from 6:00pm on Sundays so we can practice more, play more, sing more and chat more.
A couple of new tunes to add to the mix from this Sunday are Drunken Sailor, probably one of the oldest shanties ever recorded, Harvest Moon which has been threatening to make it into the mix from day one, and Sally MacLennan which is quite simply one of the best Irish songs on the go, especially the version arranged by The Pogues.
Freddie and Rachel’s Foxhunter’s Jig are another worthy addition to the list, if you’re unfamiliar Fairport Convention recorded a medley of that, Lark in the Morning, Rakish Paddy and Toss the Feathers on the outstanding Liege and Lief album. Listen here on spotify.
