Music events in the local area kick off again fairly sharpish after the New Year. First off the starting block is my singaround in the Guest House in Union Street, Southport on Monday 2 January. A singaround is the most informal participative music event possible, much less intimidating than an open mike night. Performing is of course optional and you can simply listen while supping one of perhaps eleven real ales.
The Maghull Folk Club has a singers night on Tuesday 3 January. It meets at the Maghull Community Association, 604 Green Lane, L31 2JH. Bottled ales.
Following close behind is the Mason's singaround on Wednesday 4 January. The Mason's is a Robinson's pub on Anchor Street, behind the main post office on Lord Street, Southport. There's often a real fire to welcome us on cold nights.
Also on Wednesday is the Jazz Night at the Shrimper with the The Merseysippi Jazz Band. The Shrimper is on Fylde Road, Southport and has Tetley cask bitter.
That covers the next week, so you see, there's no need for a post-holiday lull: start the New Year as you intend to go on!
