Jurassic Folk welcomes new talent

PUBLISHED: 10:41 30 September 2009 | UPDATED: 00:16 16 June 2010

It is getting somewhat of a truism that every night we have as Jurassic Folk, seems to be the best ever, but that was certainly the feeling after our September session.

It is getting somewhat of a truism that every night we have as Jurassic Folk, seems to be the best ever, but that was certainly the feeling after our September session.

The packed bar area, to which we usually confine ourselves, was clearly inadequate to encompass the gyrating, and sometimes quite frightening, onslaughts of Flaming Morris, so, for the first time, we trooped out into the main arena to enjoy their performance and, at the same time, keeping out of the way of their flailing sticks.

However, the majority of the session took place as usual, in that we had sterling performances from all our regulars, too numerous to mention here, and some brilliant contributions from some newcomers, particularly the ragtime guitar picking vicar who was quite a revelation; although he is not local.

The session ran well over time with all the talent we had to fit in but, as usual, Jenny, the Grove manager, didn't mind at all.

We are excited in anticipation to see what October brings, so the place to be on Wednesday, October 21, at 8pm, is the Grove Nite Club, Seaton.

As always, everybody is welcome, singers, musicians, poets and audience and admission is absolutely free. For more info call (01297) 20064 or visit www.eastdevonfolk.org
