Hello again. Well, despite the heavy rain Thirty One people came to the Rhyl Football Club last Friday including Eleven Performers.
Tom Degney started us off again this week with ‘Autumn Leaves’. George Stanley Evans was next, singing Help & Pretty Woman. Richard and Wendy entertained us with A Town This Size and Wendy did a song written by Donagh Long ‘You’ll Never be the Sun’.
The audience then joined in to a couple of numbers by Richard Davies and Tom Degney ‘Me and Bobby Mcgee’ and ‘Galway to Graceland ( Richard Thompson). Kevin Wardman then sang ‘Arrogance Ignorance and Greed’ (Steve Knightley) I think that’s the first time it’s been sung in the Club. Nice one Kevin. Nice to see Bill Conde in the Club tonight showing us the Ukulele he’s just finished. He also played ‘Freight Train’ on his Guitar & later did ‘ I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now’. Keith was in the mood for a couple of Ewan McCall songs ‘ Farewell to the 30 ft Trailer & Dirty Old Town’ and later ‘Have you Ever’. He was in good form. Colin Masterson managed a couple of songs one of which was ‘Lesson too Late for the Learning ( Tom Paxton).
I sang a old number ‘Swift Recovery’ which was written by Paul Darby, who was part of a duo called ‘Winfall’ along with Anthony Griffiths on Guitar. They performed three times at the Bee Folk Club in the mid to late sixties. Mike Whittaker from Llandudno was next and one of his songs was called ‘Don’t Ever Change’ which he wrote. He has written many songs himself and we are just getting to know them now. Linda & Tom Degney finished the first half with two songs one was ‘Don’t you Believe’ and nothing about the rain but of course it already was raining.
Other songs in the second half included Kevin with ‘I Be Your Baby Tonight’:- Wendy with I’ll Carry You Home ( James Blunt) I did Utah Phillips’ ‘All Used Up’ & Linda and Tom were next with ‘Carolina Star’ before Mike came on again to finish the night with another one of his songs called ‘Good Night choo choo’.
A good night was had by all with a good mix of of songs and Tunes ( Bill )
All the best for now. Let’s do it again on 22nd April 2016
