A new year and another virtual FAF, hosted by Tony & Grace. Stuart got us under way with Sister Josephine and The Foggy Dew and Tony & Grace sang the first of this evening’s wassails Here We Come A-Wassailing and their comment on the covid world Ramping It Up. Martin had experimented with a new tuning for John Martyn’s Couldn’t Love You More and also sang Springsteen’s The Price You Pay and Andy did the old time Bright Side Somewhere and his own Money. Louise & Pete sang the Merry Hell song Bury Me Naked and marked the quick passing of time (noting that it was five years since David Bowie died) with Who Knows Where The Time Goes? Sonia & Andy had The Old Fox Wassail Number 1 and Bunch Of Thyme and it was great to see James back again after his brush with covid singing the Bee Gees classic To Love Somebody and his tribute to Bowie Ashes To Ashes. Keith sang Dimples and Fiddler’s Green (with Joy joining in heartily), Geoff popped in with another wassail and Alison had a a modern take with Homeless Wassail as well as The Woodcutter’s Song. Sean was commenting again on current events with Knock It Man (after Elton John) and Hold On, with Sandi adding a lovely backing vocal before she played some morris tunes Liberty Bodice and Jack Robinson which had many of us dancing and waving hankies around our living rooms! Gavin sang Thank You NHS and a new song Oh America, Kath played Salmontails and Planxty Irwin and Rose sang Like A Sad Song (John Denver) and Freight Train. Keith sang us out with Keep Your Lamp for everyone to join in.
