Colourful session

A quick and dirty report this week on last week's session I'm afraid because there's a lot going on at home for this scribe. Don't worry, nothing bad, just a bit hectic.

We assembled as a perfectly respectable eight singers and Colin was back from his holidays, so he took back the club accoutrements and the mantle of MC for the evening.

Miraculously, Simon had turned up first and so got to sing first, giving us Dave Sudbury's King Of Rome. Colin, freshly inspired no doubt by a visit to Sidmouth Folk Week, sang The Reason I Left Mullingar (Pat Cooksey).

Phil sang Jimmy Brown The Newsboy Of The Town (AP Carter).

Mike's singing of The Scarlet and the Blue (Roud 163) inspired Derek to propose a theme of colours which several people managed to follow but first we had a memorial from Geoff to the recently departed Glen Campbell with his song Wichita Lineman (Jimmy Webb).

So now we get down to colours. I will no doubt miss some  but here's an attempt at a list:

Roger finished off the evening in fine style allowing everyone to sing along with Jerusalem (William Blake).

Here's a selection of songs sung during this session.
