Music Halls, featuring Music Hall songs and performers, such as Florrie Forde and Marie Lloyd, grew in popularity from the late 1880s, and were very popular in the first quarter of the 20th Century. After 1945, the songs themselves continued to live on in pub piano singalongs. We reviewed the old Music Hall songs, such as After The Ball Was Over, On Mother Kelly’s Doorstep, and Down At The Old Bull and Bush, in our April sessions. Such wonderful old melodies! Fancy giving uke-playing a try? Beginners – no problem. Call me. David Evans.
Three Little Birds, Eight Days a Week, 500 Miles, etc. Some of us (Strictly Ukuleles) have performed three concerts this month to local audiences, and they all want to re-book us! We enjoy performing, but even more the pleasure that our performing brings. David Evans.
