Joe Lyon

Fifteen performers plus almost the same number of audience made for a great atmosphere and another varied night of music and mirth.

It was good to see Mike Kendrick again, taking time off from gigging with his bands, the Dansette Alligators and the Shambolics, to do a floor spot at the club.

He arrived on foot this time, leaving the Llanfairfechan Horse in its stable 🙂

Joe Lyon got the evening underway with the Scott Walker classic, “Lights of Cincinnati” with Mark Thatcher accompanying on bass.

Thirty-four Songs
Kris Kristofferson’s “Sunday Morning Coming Down” was the thirtieth song of the night, delivered by Penni Neale accompanied by Tom on dobro. We’d all done two songs each and so we fired up the Random Name Generator to choose four performers to fill the remaining twenty-five minutes.

The last of these was Alan Thompson who sang one of his own lovely songs, “Try”.

Alan had also been busy during the evening filming and kindly compiled this little selection of clips:
