Christmas Strumalong 2014

As usual, our final club night of the year was the annual Christmas Strumalong at the Jolly Farmers pub. This time, group members included Andrew, Bob, Chris K, Christina K, Colin, Dan, Ed, Jeanette, Liz, Maria, Rufus, Steve H, Steve J & Tina.  We entertained the football-watching crowd with a number of our favourite tunes. And some Xmas ones as well.

We were sorry not to see several of our regulars who couldn’t join us this evening – such as Chris, Jos, Kev & Shelia – so wish them all a very Merry Xmas & Happy New Year.

Brindishe Green School Christmas Fair – Nov 2014

We gave a return performance at this year’s Xmas Fair at a local Hither Green primary school. As you can see, the audience were up & dancing along with us. PLUC regulars may be able to recognise what tunes we were playing!

Thanks to Anna for carefully filming us in the noisy school hall. And get well soon to Colin, who was poorly & couldn’t join us.

Hither Green Festival 2014

This month has seen us perform two gigs. The second was in St Swithun’s Church Hall, Hither Green Lane, as part of this year’s Hither Green Festival. We played two sets to an appreciative crowd, either side of a tasty Malaysian meal.

Liz Creasey took this footage of Va Pensiero. If anyone else bootlegged our performance, please do get in touch as we’d love to show the videos on the website.

Dust off your Easter bonnets & enjoy Andrew Morse’s cover of Professor Elemental‘s Hat Full Of Sunshine this Bank Holiday weekend.

For those of you interested in these things, this cover version uses samples from a 1928 tune entitled Sweet Sue, Just You, performed by the Mills Brothers amongst many others.

Southbank Chorus Festival 31 Mar – 6 Apr 2014 – Part 2

Victoria Embankment Gardens Buskers 140405

Victoria Embankment Gardens  – Uke-Wielding Buskers

Off again without my uke for a day of vocal workouts at the Southbank Chorus Festival, as I bought some lunch for later on, I was delighted to spot a group of lively buskers by Victoria Embankment Gardens, with the lead singer wielding a ukulele & dancing around.

As with last year, there were events all over the Southbank complex – on the Riverside Terrace, Front Room at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, up in the St Paul’s Roof Pavilion, down in the Spirit level basement (very echoey – great acoustics) & dotted around various bar areas.

I’d decided to try out four of the free workshops & listen to whatever choirs I could catch in the gaps. Read the rest of this entry »

Southbank Chorus Festival 31 Mar – 6 Apr 2014

Now in it’s sixth year, the Southbank Chorus Festival is the place to be this week for anyone who enjoys singing or would like the chance to improve their voice.

There are lots of opportunities to take part, with free Voicelab warm-up, drop-in and song-sharing sessions held alongside a diverse programme of performances by different choirs. See the website for more details & my review from last year’s festival to find out more.
