Havering Folk Club 12th August

This Wednesday at Havering Folk Club we had to leave early because Linda was feeling quite unwell but the first half was very good. We're getting more visitors or new members from Romford Folk club on Tuesday nights now. These are people well known to some of the the Havering regulars but not to myself because I've never been to Romford Folk Club.

Anyway, the interesting thing about the songs I played this week was the reaction from a handful of my friends in the audience. My stuff usually goes down well but when four seperate people make a point of telling me they particularly enjoyed it this week then it makes me think about what differences there might have been in my performance this time to tip the balance. Maybe I played more like I do when I'm at home, a bit more relaxed improvisation or else they just like a bit of guitar playing instead of just songs. It was a quietly attentive audience, more so than some weeks so that may have had something to do with it, or just wondering why I got up to go home during the interval!

Luckily Linda managed to record the two songs on video before taking ill so I'll post them in under here.
