That said, Tom Degney did “Shimmy like his sister Kate”.
Then Lynda went into Don Williams mode with “Don’t You Believe”, and I served up a slice of Bread in the form of “Guitar Man”.
Wendy Eastwood then joined her husband for the Alison Krauss/Don Williams duet, “Lay Down Beside Me”.
And so a very pleasant evening, in which we had the rare opportunity to perform five songs each, was brought to a close by Penni Neale. And she took us from the first day of summer straight into Autumn with a beautiful rendition of the song that has become something of an anthem for Ruthin AllStyles. Every time I hear “Autumn Leaves” I can’t help thinking of the late Bryn Roberts. It was one of his favourite songs. (Click ► below to listen)
Next Thursday is our Festival Week Singers’ Night, when in the second half of the evening we will be showcasing four of Ruthin’s musical acts: Fuchsia Jones, Breeze, Ceidwad y Gan, and the Tom, Dick and Harry Band.
