morris folk club for april

It was the Morris Folk Club for April last week, on Tuesday 26th. I sang The Model Ship, Death of Queen Jane, and (literally to fill in some time until the next singer reappeared - I haven't escalated my demands to three songs a night) Lowlands Away. Went okay, though I don't think The Model Ship is going to become a folk standard anytime soon.

(I woke up on Sunday morning with Kraftwerk's The Model in my head and a conviction that it could work as a sea shanty. I made up a couple of refrains for two of the instrumental bits, and we gave it a go...)
