What an excellent evening at Blackfen FC! We went a little mad with wintery foliage and little lights on the NCI stage (Jennas’ idea!) but it did look very good. A short round of floor singers and then Tim Mellor (plus guitar, melodeon and Northumbrian pipes) took the first half with a real mix of traditional songs and tunes. Jenna and I joined him on stage for our three part harmony versions of “The Wren” and “Lloyd George”- great fun. The second half of the evening began with a couple more floor singers then it was our turn to launch into our long set which included a couple of new songs and tunes. Our set finished with Tim joining us on stage for a pipes + guzouki + Jenna vocals version of “On yonder hill” and finally finishing with a big sing-a-long on John Ball.
