We were delighted to be asked, as we have recently taken on a new project to learn new arrangements of popular folk songs: ‘I Tell Me Ma’ and ‘She Moved Through The Fair’. This kind invitation gave us the chance to premier one of our new arrangements to a friendly and encouraging audience before we face a panel of judges at Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts next weekend.
We sang our two new folk songs, along with two well-loved pieces from our original repertoire (‘God Only Knows’ and ‘Price Tag’). It was great fun, and seemed to please our audience during a well-earned break from their dancing. Afterwards, we joined them for a cuppa and a biscuit, and some of us stayed to have a go at some traditional folk moves until late in the evening.
Thank you to the lovely dancers at St Anne’s Friday Folk, especially Paul, Howard and Diana for their warm welcome.”
