so we learned a couple of new songs things week – although to be honest the majority of our efforts went into making sure our gig this saturday (did i mention we had a gig?!) will be enjoyed both by participant and audience!
trying to find new songs that are a) upbeat b) unexpected and c) popular with most people in the OUO is a matter of great concern to me….so please send me your requests!! in the meantime..you will have to put up with my ideas!
however, we did give DOMINO – jessie j a go (far too high for me to sing – i now have new found respect for her – yes – she is a her!) as well as MONKEY MAN lyrics and chords. i love monkey man; especially the original 1969 toots and the maytals version. i have fond memories of playing and dancing to this song. cue instant good vibes!
check out toots and the maytals performing this live….
and so the otley folk festival draws near….don’t forget you can see us live a the old cock, 6.30pm on saturday 22nd….and also keep your eyes and ears open for news of our secret sunday performance….you just never know where we might pop up!
