Over 30 old-time music lovers gathered at Westfield Dive for our second sing-a-long of the year. We were grateful to again have the brilliant Dianna as pianist. Bill, our compere, added interest with background information on the musical items. Janet and her friend Margaret also sang individual items and led the community singing. Of special note was Janet’s singing of Braham’s Lullaby in German and Margaret’s amusing rendition of the English vaudeville song “Waiting at the Church”.
We completed Book 4 of our 4 old-time songbooks which featured several folk and traditional songs from the British Isles and the deep south of the USA.
It was a joyful experience making music together. The afternoon tea was great too!
Keep tuned for more Musical Memories next year.
