JOHN HARVEY TUNES SESSION, BEAR YARD, LEWES
TUESDAY 6th. NOVEMBER 8.00 - 11.00 PM
The usual English tunes session comes round again. Some of us are likely
to be a bit charred round the edges, assuming that we're still at liberty in
the first place. If you'd like to lead one of these sessions, which are always
on the first Tuesday of the month, let me know. Keith Macdonald and Brian
Cooper have just earmarked the February 2008 session.
LEWES ARMS CLUB-ROOM, FRIDAY 2ND NOVEMBER, 8.00 - 11.00 PM
N.B. For some reason the club-room isn't available on Monday 5th.
This is Bryan Creer's regular free session for concertina players of all
systems and abilities. What happens depends largely on who turns up, but
there's usually some part-playing at some stage and a few session tunes get
severely beaten up.
ENGLISH TUNES SESSION, TREVOR ARMS, GLYNDE, SUNDAY 4TH. NOVEMBER, 3.30 -

banners going up in Cliffe High Street and have a pint at the John Harvey.
