Subject: Frittenden session,
The regular Bell+Jorrocks old fashioned and traditional music
sessions continue on Sunday the 25th October - and once again we'd love to see
interested folks from this forum on the night!
The sessions are held at
the Bell & Jorrocks pub at Frittenden, Kent, and start at 8pm and continue
until it's time to sing Nellie Dean and say goodnight. They're informal and
free, with lots of old fashioned and traditional songs and tunes, and a big
emphasis on variety, humour and entertainment generally - if you liked your pub
the way it was before the telly and the computer came, this is the event for
Once again we've decided to feature a good friend, on this occasion
it's Sussex anglo concertina player Tony Dunn, powerhouse behind countless
sessions in his own county - so expect a good night for concertina enthusiasts.
But there's no need to worry that other interests will be left out - there will
be plenty of play-along country dance tunes, and sing-along choruses from
regulars who often include singers, stepdancers, and fiddle, melodeon and
concertina players, including ourselves.
