Subject: New singaround near Lenham starting this Thursday 28th April
Sorry for the very short notice, but I think some of you will be interested in
coming, if you can, to a new open mike/singaround that starts tomorrow
Thursday 28th April, on the last Thursday of each month. John 'wee jock'
Matthews and I have been asked to host the evening, but don't let that put you
The venue is to be in the bar at The White Horse PH, Lenham Heath Road,
Sandway ME17 2HY (one mile from Lenham), starting 8 for 8.30.
Pub phone number is 01622 859511
The pub was taken over nine months ago by new landlord and -lady Gavin and
Jenny, who are very folk-friendly (for example, they have the Seven Champs
Molly rehearsing in the pub's back room every Thursday evening, some of whom
will be joining us tomorrow night after their rehearsal finishes at 10 p.m.)
and who have transformed the place back to a traditional English Country pub
with good local real ales and a lovely atmosphere.
Plenty of parking, or a gentle 15 minutes walk from Lenham train station (come
out the station entry road, turn right, then first left (signposted Boughton
Malherbe), pub is on the right at the end.
The plan is to make it open mike (with a small pa), as we are hoping to have
it mainly song-oriented rather than as a folk session - although of course
melodeon, fiddle, recorder, whistle etc. who also like to sing are very
welcome, as well as guitar/banjo/mandolin/bouzouki players.
Instrumentalists note: there is already an excellent 'tunes' session held in
the Red Lion pub in Lenham village square on the last Sunday of each month.
Last time I went there were 7 accordions and 2 melodeons, a fiddle and a
Hope you can join us Thursday evening - if you'd like more details phone me on
