Steve and Carolyn did an excellent feature night on 10 February 2017. Steve included some of his own songs and poems and I especially enjoyed his fine song ‘Men of the Plough’. He was well supported by friends and fellow artists particularly Steve and Julie (pictured below) who have adapted some of his poems to songs.
Carolyn very thoughtfully chose categories for her songs:
Special female singer: Joan Baez - 'Silkie of Sule Skerry'
Special American city: New Orleans - 'House of the Rising Sun'
Special male singer: Jimmy Webb - 'Is there love after you?'
Special poet: Robert Burns - 'Ae fond kiss'
Special European country: Italy - 'Volare'
...all performed in her usual delightful and interesting style; and a fine finale with Steve: the traditional version of 'Auld Lang Syn', with Alistair Bloomfield on fiddle.
A very enjoyable evening and good attendance. JC
