28th Jan John Morgan at the Castle Inn, 16th Jan tunes workshop at the Gun, tunes session 4th Feb

  • Welcome to 2018!
  • Our guest at the Castle, Brenchley on the 28th January is the lovely local singer John Morgan. John has a fine style and an excellent voice, and specialises in traditional songs, frequently those of the South-East and often accompanied by his melodeon. The evening starts at 8pm, and although we call it a session and it is free, everyone is welcome including those who just like to listen! If you do come, I can promise a good evening and some delightful songs and tunes.
  • The next tunes workshop is upstairs at the Gun, Horsmonden on the 16th January from 8pm! The tunes will be online in due course.
  • And the next tunes session is also at the Gun on the 4th February from 8pm.

More carolling, mumming tomorrow…

⁂ We had such fun carolling at the Stile Bridge TN12 9BH on Sunday night we’re hoping to do it all again on the evening of the 29th from 9pm. Please let us know if you would like to be there on the 29th. I’m at gmatkin@gmail.com and will write to you individually to let you know and also update the website and Facebook page. Most of the carols we’ll sing were either composed locally or used to be sung in this area and song sheets (link) will be provided, so if they’re needed please bring your reading glasses!

⁂ Mumming tomorrow night (Wednesday) Pete Ashby’s Mummers include several folks Singdanceandplay regulars will know very well will be in action tomorrow night. We’ll be at The George at Cranbrook at 8pm, moving on to the Bell & Jorrocks at Frittenden, then the Knoxbridge, and finishing at the King’s Head, Staplehurst, aiming to be there around 9.15pm.
