The front room in the Lion Tavern
where we held the singaround
My first singaround in the Lion Tavern in Liverpool last night was quite a success. I had been worried I might be sitting there clutching my guitar on my own, but in the event eight other singers turned up, including local folk luminaries such as Colin Batho, Keith Price, Helen McCall and local singer songwriter Lizzie Nunnery, who accompanied her own compositions on a ukulele played in a rather unusual way. She doesn't do any George Formby, though. There was a great variety of songs, including traditional, gospel, originals, the Great American Songbook and a bit of rock & roll ~ not from me, for a change.
A good range of real ales was on, including JW Lees, but I stuck with Midsummer Madness, 4.7%, dry and golden, just the ticket when singing on a warm summer evening.
After that promising start, we'll do it all again on Thursday 12 August.
