Folk Yule

A good night of story and song at South East London Folklore Society's Folk Yule on Thursday night, upstairs in the Old Kings Head by London Bridge. Music included Richard Sanderson's electronic settings of folk songs such as Hares on the Mountain, complete with some fine bird song samples; Hawthorn Well singing Twickenham Ferry; and me singing a couple of south london songs - On Snow Hill, about Greenwich Park, and The Old Kings Head about, well, that's self explanatory (see Transpontine Sound, my embryonic music site). There was also a story about a Christmas tree by Penny Hedge and some entertaining anglo-saxon riddles from Sarah Rundle.
