Most of all, it was All About The Music, as forty five friends flocked to The Feathers in festive mood to party on our final Singers’ Night of 2017.
They arrived from far and wide; from Rhyl to Rhos-on-Sea, from Wrexham to The Wirral, From Denbigh, Ruthin and all points in between.
The feast comprised of Chip Baps, Pizza, Mince Pies and a wonderful Christmas Cake baked and decorated by Glyn Hudson. The atmosphere was charged with Fun. And, in the words of Paul Simon, ‘Not a negative word was heard, from the peoples passing by…”.
Almost half of the revellers were minstrels, having turned-up armed with guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, ukulele, fiddle, or the lyrics of a limerick, to entertain and delight well into the night.
There were so many excellent performances; some seasonal, some contemporary and some traditional. I’m not even going to try to list them all. Instead, we’ll just let the pictures tell the rest of the story:
