Latest club news…
This was the advice (According to Harry) that Prince Charles’s mother gave him at breakfast one morning, when, after asking him what he was doing that day, he told her he was going to open a new library at Ochty-Nochty.
Fashion never was one of Charles’s best traits!
We had several visitors from Ruthin to entertain us last Friday, Harry and John Bass, who joined with ours and Ruthin club’s Tom and Richard, to play as Tom, Dick and Harry (and John).
Amongst the several songs they gave us were ‘Wagon Wheel’, ‘My Old Friend the Blues’, ‘Delia’s Gone’, ‘A Mess of Blues’, ‘Drift Away’, ‘Gone to Shiloh’, and the John Prine great ‘Speed of the Sound of Loneliness’.
Chris Birchall also came across, and amongst other songs, gave us Van Morrison’s ‘Into The Mystic’, ‘Whiskey in the Jar’, Doctor Hooks ‘The Eyes of Lucy Jordan’, (I still prefer Marianne Faithful version to Doctor Hooks!) .
Wendy and Richard also sang about rain, with Nancy Griffiths song ‘I Wish It Would Rain’, (well now it has!), Also Edwena Hayes’ ‘My Love’, ‘You’re My Best Friend’, and of course an obligatory Jim Reeves! Keith entertained us with a medley of Sea Shanties.
Tom 2 (Tom Goodall) again blew us away with his brilliantly self-written ‘Mothers Hugs’ (When you are famous Tom, remember to send us tickets to your concerts).
We need to make this viral!!!
Tom also did a great version of Hit The Road Jack, Glen Hansards ‘Falling Slowly’, and an awesome cover of the Prince song ‘Where Doves Fly’.
It was a memorable night, with good friends.
