A quick note to say that tonight I fulfilled an ambition that I’ve had for a year or so. Back in the old post Let’s Do Everything, I mentioned that “Tonight, Fiona played in a local folk club, and it made me realise that I’d like to do that, too.” This evening was a Singers’ Night at the Forest Folk Club, which is less than ten miles away from where we live. So I took along my guitar, and played and sang four songs to a smallish but appreciative audience — about 25 people. Either they were all being very generous in their response, or it went pretty well.
For anyone who cares, the four songs were Richard Shindell’s The Next Best Western; We Learned the Sea and February (both originally by Dar Williams); and the Beatles classic Here, There and Everywhere.
I plan to do it again at the next Singers’ Night in a fortnight, but I will have to get four new songs up to scratch by then!
