Tuesday 4th June

 

Looking forward to singing some lovely English folk songs with everyone tonight. The Ballad of Grace Darling has been a firm favourite (and ear worm!) and we will also have another go at The Oak and the Ash. Here is a reminder of that song on video. I think we can do it as well as this! And from all the versions of the song I have heard, you definitely don’t have to be a north country lass to sing this song!! But we have the added benefit of being able to say whenever we go down South  – how good it is to be back in the North!
