Music Songs Poems & Pints

360° Video Seamus O'Doherty Live Singing "Loving Hearts" with Pete on Emerald Amicus:-

A friendly (none too serious) gathering of like minded people who enjoy making music, singing and reciting poems/monologues having a few drinks, some sandwiches and a laugh (and maybe the odd cry) and in general a social interaction involving Music, Songs, Poems & Pints (or observation of the previous mentioned) - basically a fun session involving music and the spoken word. 'appen a bit of fun might describe it better. (Evening Gazette)
It's a Sing-around (observer)
an excuse for a few pints and a laugh (Landlord)

St Patrick's Night 2016 @ The Plough

St Patrick's Day 2016 at The Plough Staining


A Few stills from the night

Welcome to the plough......
Penny Black with Rhythm Section
Penny Black+ Bill, Pete, John(RIP), Eric (RIP).

The Music Songs Poems & Pints sessions started when Pete & John (Penny Black) called in for a pint after a Radio Lancashire Broadcast. One of the regulars ask them to Sing "The Belle" for his Dad, and after a bit of coercion for the Landlord (Ian Campbell), PB obliged and what started out as "a song" continued into a night of music (Eric popped home for Bodhran and Lorraine arrived to add some prettier songs) - the table was filled with drinks, and the night was a great success! The Falcon Session came to an end shortly afterwards and Ian Campbell asked PB to move into the Plough on a Tuesday - the rest is history....

the wonderful jiva

Jimmy (sadly no longer with us) & Val - two lovely people We are proud to call "Our Friends"

jiva was formed when Jimmy ('ji') and Val ('va') got together again in 2002 after 30 years when Val moved back to Northumberland. Since then they have built a solid reputation (not only in the North East, but across the UK) as performers of quality self-penned material and interpreters of carefully chosen songs by other artists.
