second & fourth Tuesdays of each month at The Guide Dog, Bevois Valley,
third & fifth Wednesdays at The Wellington Arms, Freemantle,
and some Fridays at “The First” Gallery, Bitterne, SOUTHAMPTON
24 May 2022
Fourth Tues. = usually a Singaround-with-Guest at The Dog [38, Earls Rd, Bevois Valley SO14 6SF], following the calendar pattern there of SECOND & FOURTH TUESDAYS of the month. Going round the room one turn at a time, anyone who wishes can do a turn, with others harmonizing where appropriate. Bring your favourite songs, tunes, poems, etc.
Though not a formal Guest as such, Althea Willette was with us. A Minnesotan periodically exploring England, she’s a regular at the Dubliner / Merlin's Rest Pub- / Shanty- Sings in Minneapolis/St. Paul. She has a warm lower-register voice, with much chorus-singing; also interested in the Shape-Note harmony tradition..
As well as this Events Diary, I’ll also keep updated the FOCSLE Music Facebook page header, visible with NO LOG-IN, OR FBk A/C. Try it now: https://www.facebook.com/FoczleMusic. Fuzzy “plan” is for Singarounds-with-Guests on fourth Tues. and Singarounds-only on second Tues. [because the fourth-Tues. calendar is more reliable]. So any mooted Singaround MAY morph into a Guest night, as we ink in guest schedules and as guests get more confident / cavalier about attending smaller spaces.
