A Perfect Ten

Joe Lyon and John Helm

Ten troubadours tentatively tendered their title to the tally of Thursday night tune makers to tantalise the attentive audience.

Of the regulars, we had Penni and Bob Neale, myself and Joe Lyon. Joe was joined for one of his Kinks numbers, by our nouveau-regular, John Helm on bass guitar. John also did a solo spot, accompanying himself on mandolin.

Rhodri Hampden Jones is also fast becoming a regular, adding some fine a cappella variety into the mix, through the medium of both English and Welsh.

Geoff Durno

It is always good to welcome back some of our less frequent visitors. One such was Geoff Durno who ventured into the realms of the Paul Simon songbook for a couple of the numbers in his well executed set.

Another was Mr Robin Spreckley who entertained us in his unique style with his quirky songs and mandolin magic. He was joined on his first set by family friend Tara on the violin, opening with a super instrumental duet.

It was Tara’s first visit to the club and when she stepped up to do her solo spot, we were in for a real treat. This young lass from Carmarthenshire revealed the sweetest and purest voice, singing both a cappella and to her own accompaniment on mandolin and guitar. We do hope Robin and Jan can bring her back again soon.

Keith Hawley

Although Keith Hawley has visited the club a time or two in the recent past, tonight was the first time we had seen him at the business end of the microphone. What a fine energetic set he played, which included a trip “Up The Junction”, 1980s Squeeze style.

Penni played us out for the evening with a couple of new songs plus my particular favourite “You’ll Never Be The Sun”. This gives me a chance to ‘ramp up the reverb’, which suits the song, her guitar style and her lovely vocals.

I’ll tell you what… You’d go a long way to find a better night’s entertainment – and all for £1.50 🙂 See you next week!
