Bethany Homestead – Sat 24 June

  • Event is the Bethany Summer Fayre
  • Runs from 2.30- 4.30 BUT
  • We have been asked to set up from 2.00 so can we meet then please.
  • Best way to find it is to go along St Georges Avenue with the racecourse on your left – first set of lights turn right into Trinity Avenue and the home is on your right. You should be able to park on the road itself but if not, just past the home on the same side is Fairfields School and we can park in there.
  • If you’ve got one, NUGs shirts to be worn.
  • we should be playing on a raised terrace which acts as a sort of stage.
  • There will be no sound system and if its windy we tend to disappear into the ether so be ready to sing up!
  • On the subject of wind – it will be blowy so the most important bit of travelling minstrel gear you need for the day is CLOTHES PEGS!!
  • I will be bringing copies of the new “GigBook” so your second most important piece of kit (if you have one) is a stand. Don’t worry if not – there will be spares.
 
We will probably do two sessions of 30-40 minutes with a break of similar length in-between.
 
The following is mostly in book order and takes due account of the likely vintage of the audience:
 

 

Part One

Bad Moon Rising

California Girls

Dedicated Follower of Fashion

Eight Days a Week

Galway Girl

What a day for a Daydream

Running Bear

Delilah

 

 Part Two

I can see clearly now

I’m a Believer

In the Summertime

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Maxwell’s Silver Hammer

Octopus’s Garden

Sunny Afternoon

Sweet Caroline

Where do you go to my lovely?

In reserve in case of a sudden outbreak of enthusiasm:

Those were the days

Macnamara’s Band

 

I think that covers everything. My mobile in case any problems is: 07795 348578
 
See you tomorrow.

Canal Trip

When the [C] weather is fine you [G] know it’s a sign
For [F] messing a [G7]bout on the [C] river
If you take my advice there’s [G] nothing so nice
