Inspired by Eddie’s poem, Chris has composed this. Not put to music yet, but who knows?
Sing a song of sixpence
We went to Ryan’s Bar
Playing for the people
Who came from near and far.
At first there were no faces
Of people that we knew
But then along came Eddie
And that was really cool.
Then there were some others
Who came to cheer us on
We needed all the help we got
And some to sing along.
Dylan, Ochs and Mitchell
Are not to every taste
So we were very grateful
That it didn’t go to waste.
So thanks to all the people
Who came to hear our set
We know we are not perfect
But we will get better yet
And while good friends are with us
Propping up the bar
It’s great to have support
Strong as a Playtex Living Bra!
A very Happy New Year!
We are emerging from hibernation to perform our first gig of the year at Ryan’s Bar, Torquay, on Sunday 17th February 2013. We start at 5 and play till about 8pm.
Plenty of our well-loved favourites and a few new songs to spice things up a bit.
Our new acoustic amp and guitar should improve sound quality massively – so I’d better play my best!
We hope to see you there.
We have further bookings at Ryan’s Bar – 19th May and 8th Sept.
If you can’t get to any of them, we will be back at Lupton House, Churston Ferrars on Wednesday 5th June, 7.30pm.
Paul & Chris also sing with One Accord, a small but perfectly formed 4 part harmony performance group.
Highlights recently were packed concerts at The Great Hall Dartington and Lupton House – both in June 2012.
Our next One Accord Concert is at the Little Theatre, Torquay on Sat 6th October 2012 at 7.30. Tickets £7.50 from the box office
Wednesday 15th August at 7.30pm
A gig in the iconic country house, Lupton House, currently being restored to its former glory. Our gig aimed to bring people to see the site and raise cash to help with the work. A good crowd came to help make it a memorable evening.
We had a great gig at Ryan’s Bar (Bottom Bar) on Sunday 3rd June.
Great response from a good crowd who joined in with many of the songs they knew. Even Destruction Preventer gave us their approval.
Singing 3 sets in the Bottom Bar Ryan’s Bar, Torquay.
We have been invited back to Ryan’s Bar on Sunday 2nd September 5pm – 8.pm.
