I was going to try and play my trumpet at the pub tonight, but of course I haven’t had time to practice, and although I had a lesson recently….well it just doesn’t sound very good….
So do a song…again…I have been so busy…..I haven’t learned anything new. A lot of the time I will just sing something that I have done before…
When we got there the band was playing, but there is always a section of the night where the audience can sing or read poetry while the band take a break.
I decided to sing “Scarborough fair” but I started a bit too high. I have sung it before, maybe two years ago, so I wrote the words down and sang from some scribble on a peice of paper…..
“are you going to Scarborough fair, parsley sage rosemary and thyme, remember me to one who lives there, she once was a true love of mine” etc….
I took a couple of photos, but my camera phone doesn’t work well in the dark so I have had to put them through some filters.
A friend had brought some paper and pencils, so while the band and audience played music I drew some of the customers at the pub. I have posted the drawings here, some worked better than others. In a rapidly moving crowd you have to try and get an image down quickly. Especially if people are playing instruments!
