A lot of our regular members were away at ‘Folk at the Farm on Anglesey, so it wasn’t the busiest night of the year!
But we still had e good time, Wendy took the job as compare, Jackie the door, and Jeff the sound desk, Wendy also did an Edwina Hayes Tribute night, singing all Edwina Hayes songs, including I’ll leave a light on for you and No-bodies coming around, as well as accompanying Richard in a couple of songs (Yes, one was a Jim Reeves!!!) Stewart did Desperado, the Eagles classic, followed by the S&G great America. Richard then took the stage accompanied by Colin on his Uke, to give us Pilgrim, by Steve Earl, and 500 Miles (Away from home)
Colin then took the stage Himself, (accompanied by his Epiphone, Tobacco Sunburst Les Paul style ukulele) and gave us Buddy Holly,s Raining in my Heart, and , yes, a Beatles song, Follow the sun.
Wendy then did Two Edwina Hayes Songs.
I Leave a Light on for you, and No-boddies coming around
Hope, Steve and Nathan then came on.and gave us Big Wheel Girl, and Loosing Everything.
Tom Goodall came up and gave us …
A Bruce Springsteen Cover, followed by one of his own compositions, ‘Everyone’s got a song about a train, so here’s mine’ I think that was the title anyway!
Wendy then introduced Tony onto the stage, he started of with the haunting Angel Flying too C lose to the Ground, by Willy Nelson, and finished his first spot with a just as good John Wright Song. What a writer,….I had a dream, and I gave it away, and the name that I gave it was your name… Tony’s got just the voice for it.
After the raffle…
Wendy,s Richard did a turn, followed by John, then Stewart singing Stand by Me.
Wendy, Richard and Colin, in true Rhyl tradition, decided to form a group…
Hope came back on for their second spot, and sang an almost brand new song, never heard at Rhyl, called Temptation.
Time for Tom Goodall final slot..
for which he gave us Mothers Hug.Wendy then sang the Edwena Hayes song Just another Bend in the Road, and the night was closed by Tony doing You got a Friend, and a rock medley, or two featuring Honey Don’t! and the Parkinson’s song A whole lot of Shaking going on. A good night was had by all.
