Info & Songlist for Thursday 24th Aug at the Lamplighters

Hi Everyone

Only going to be a quick email tonight I hope.

Before we get onto this weeks songs there are a couple more gigs we have lined up. The first is on October 7th and will be at a wedding, not just any wedding but Colins daughter, please keep this date free and let Mick Colin or myself know if you are available. It will be a very special day for everyone there.
The second gig is way in the future and will be December 7th at Duston WI I think there will only be room for 10 or 12 people to play but another date for your diary.

Ok onto the songlist, it was suggested that when we go over to Isham on September 9th to the “Strum like a pirate” day, don’t forget there is a prize for the best dressed pirate so get out your pirate hats, eye patches, wooden legs and stuffed parrots. Anyway I digress so back to the songlist It was suggested last week that for something different we do a set of our “Soul” songs, I will assume that most groups do newer songs now or the standard old ones there probably aren’t going to many songs like the list below. It was only a suggestion and don’t forget we are a totally democratic group so if you hae nay other suggestions please let us know.

Heaven must have sent you
Love really hurts without you
The snake
You to me are everything
Young hearts run free
Hooked on a feeling
Red light spells danger
River deep
Sugar pie
Your too good to be true

The three songs we are leading everyone else on are

Proud Mary
lighthouse
Irish Rover

See you all on Thursday

Ian & Mick

there might be a new book out this week if I pull my finger out

Future Gigs Update

Hi Everyone

 
A few updates on the Bradlaugh Fields Community day and the Burton Latimer Strum like a pirate day at Isham
 
Bradlaugh Fields – Saturday 5th August, we’ve been asked if we can play a couple of times first about 10:45am and then again at 3:00pm both for about 40mins or so. How does that suit, can we do both? Don’t feel you have to be there for both if you can only do one of them that would be great. Jonathan suggested we put a uke case down and collected some money.
 
Burton Latimer – 9th Sept 3:15pm we have 30 mins doing our own stuff followed by 15mins of leading a mass strum along of the 3 nautical/water based songs we put forward which are Irish Rover, Proud Mary and Lighthouse all very random and selected quick as they had to be in by Sunday and these were three that we already play. I have attached some more information to this email. Sorry the poster is a bit large

I am slowly altering our songbooks, there are now plenty of gaps in the work in progress so if you have any you would like adding please let me know.
 
 
 
See you all on Thursday
