It started with the BeBop. Or to be precise, another fine evening of music started off with a spot of lovely a cappella harmonies from Mamma G and the BeBop Brunettes.

In fact, Angharad, Lyn and Laura opened both halves of an evening in which saw eleven acts, involving fourteen performers, doing two spots each.

Joe Lyon sang about the wind and the rain. The Degneys went all Christmasy with “Mary Did You Know” and Glyn Hudson sang about Time and Donna Donna.

Penni Neal sang an Irish Lullaby and Richard Davies sang about the Hobo’s Lullaby.

I sang some Paul Simon before accompanying Bob Hall on the Shirelles classic “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”.

Making his debut at Ruthin AllStyles was Chester songster, Keith Pemberton, who served up some pretty fine blues numbers.

Before we knew it, finale time was with us, and it was Peter Hodgson and John Helm who rounded things off with Steve Earle’s “Galway Girl”.

More of the same next Thursday, folks.
