Newsletter No 18 - 24 February 2009
After being warned that the cheers of the football crowd may disturb, Pepper Street presided over a triumphant evening with not a whimper coming from the United supporters next door. Setting the tone, Don & Heather took us Down Where The Drunkards Roll with one of Richard's new songs, Who's The Fool Now, carrying on the theme. Later on Old Brown's Daughter was chosen from his rapidly extending repertoire. It was nice to see Kath & Stan back and in even better form with favourite Ring Ring The Banjo followed by New York Girls and Sleepy Desert. Similarly, Jan & Mark were early birds and reminding us that St David's Day is on Sunday 1 March she sang a couple of Welsh songs, The Ash Grove (translation) and Goch! Goch! Goch! and Mark celebrated Dai The Motorbike Man before they teamed for a Jug Of Punch. Robin then gave us an elocution lesson explaining about his clipped vowels, nothing to do with his masculinity, before singing Delta Dawn (not Don) then a cheeky Lay You Down, as in I would like to, and as the evening was coming to a close, Where Peaceful Waters Flow.
