The Dog and Gun - Walton cum Kimcote Thursday 7th July 2016
A pleasant warm summer evening so why were only 4 people and a god sitting outside to watch our performance? Then I noticed that I recognised three of them. One was the Landlady of the Pub another woman and her partner/husband I recognised as John and Izzy who used to come to Harborough Folk Club when Rowena and I ran it for a while at the Coach and Horses at Lubenham. For their sins they used to dance with Bakanalia, in fact it was probably at a gig at Belvoir Castle in the mid 'naughties' that I last saw John -and he was black and blue then. They drifted away and the Landlady went inside leaving one chap dourly sitting it out until time was called with Bonny Green Garters and we and he headed in different directions to our homes. Perhaps it was no bad thing that it was quiet as it let us prepare for what will be a busy Saturday to come.
