Havering Folk Club Halloween Party

So last night was the Havering Folk Club Halloween Party which is like a normal week but with dressing up and spectacle!

I sang one of my older songs, Joan of Arc

"The nights are getting colder and the evenings are getting dark"

and Unrequited by Loudon Wainwright with the HA ,ha, ha, ho, ho ho follow the leader type thing....

Four songs

Back from my Dad's funeral in Cornwall.

With a few regulars absent at Havering Folk Club this week, we still had a fun evening. John had heard me practicing "Hesitation Blues" so I started with that as a sort of request, then decided to sing "Samson and the Warden", a Loudon Wainwright song.

Samson And The Warden

In the second half I did an unusual thing for me, I decided irt was time for a traditional singalong and introduced the Essex audience to "Going up Camborne Hill coming down" accompanied by a pint of beer. Then I picked up the guitar and played "See Emily Play" the Pink Floyd classic.

So no Andy Roberts songs this week then.

Missing Weeks

I missed a couple of weeks at the Havering Folk club recently due to illness and events, so the last one I attended was on October 8th, another singers' night at which I played "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" "Don't you Grieve" and the Wreckers Prayer, my first repeat.
