Subject: Bell & Jorrocks session, 31st January, featuring Howard Millen
The Bell+Jorrocks old fashioned and traditional music sessions continue on Sunday the 31st of January - and of course we'd love to see lots of locals and visitors on the night!
This month our featured performer is singer and accordionist Howard Millen. If the name is familiar, it's because he's a leading member of the famous local traditional harmony singing Millen family; on his own, however, he's an old fashioned singer and musician with a great sense of fun and some very entertaining songs.
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.
The sessions take place 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 - as we like to say, if you liked your pub the way it was before the telly and the computer came, this is the event for you.
