Peter Leslie

Another Thursday and another evening of music and mirth at The Feathers.

It was Joe Lyon who got the ball rolling with an old favourite, “The House of the Rising Sun”, followed by Chris with songs from Stevie Winwood and John Martin.

Glyn Hudson had everybody singing along with a traditional folk song, “The Wedding Song”.

It was good to see Peter Leslie back at the club, opening his set with Paul Simon’s “The Only Living Boy in New York” before continuing with some of his own lovely songs. He was followed by Penni Neal who was joined by Neil Martin to duet the beautiful “The Empty Chair” written by Sting.

The Degneys were next up with their mix of bluegrass and Americana, Lynda singing “That Coalmining Man” and “Love is All Around”, and Tom sang his own composition “Rambling Man” and then played an instrumental on his dobro.

“Bang Bang” was Pete Kirkham’s first number followed by The Dubliners’ “Carrickfergus”.

Richard Davies gave us “Aragon Mill” and The Searchers’  “When You Walk in the Room”. Then in the second half, he was joined by Tom Degney and Enid Toft on “Sea of Heartaches”.

We had an eclectic mix from Neil Martin including Leonard Cohen and James Tayor, ending the evening for us with Neil Diamon’s “Song Sung Blue”.
