Friday tunes

With the addition of volume 3, there are now 100 of our favourite tunes. Which of these we actually play changes over time, but if you know any of them, we would be happy to play them with you. The versions shown are (more or less) as we play them. You may find they are a bit different from versions you get from elsewhere - that's folk music for you!

Selected songs with translations



Some of the people who come to the Tuesday Folk Club and/or the Friday/Sunday music sessions have written songs; some of these you can see by following the links below. You don't need permission to perform them, nor to reproduce them for non-profit purposes. If you plan to start making money out of them, that would be a different matter!

Songs written by Jeremy Dale

A number of original songs by Jim Johnson can be seen on YouTube - go to BlackNed51

Singing Group

The Wednesday Singing Group covers a very wide variety of songs. To give an idea of the range, download some of the songsheets we've been using. Further songsheets are added frequently, and all are available at the sessions - together with the music for some of the songs.

Music Hall

Come along to sing your favourite music hall songs and recite you favourite monologues. The session will be run informally in the style of a folk singaround.
We'll welcome all types of songs, humorous or non-humorous that may or may not have come from the music hall tradition of the UK, Ireland, or elsewhere.

This event will run every few months; look out for the next one.
