Yorkshire Folk: Royal Traditions at Dungworth

Running order 

I spent the weekend visiting a family member in Sheffield. The chill was banished by two great  evenings at Yorkshire folk music events.

Leaving behind the tempting attractions of the city concert halls and theatres, we ventured to the edge of the Peak District to the inauspiciously named village of Dungworth to spend Saturday evening at  Royal Traditions, Folk Club. When we arrived at The Royal Hotel, the evening was in full swing and the congregation of young and old was working their way through  a house song  I don't use the word, 'audience' as active  participation in singing  was as  integral to the evening as listening. There was something of the spirit  of a religious service with the order of the songs on the programme chalked up on the board  the words circulated to encourage everyone to join in. And  join in everybody did with fervour and  a rumble of convivial counterpoint of bar chatter from beyond the main chamber. Mercifully, there were no amplification,  just gentle strains of fiddle and  concertina to accompany the voices.  Sustenance was in the form of  sandwiches and ale.

Post show chat with Bryony  and daily bread
Special guest on the evening was  Bryony Griffith, who held the floor from her spot at the fireplace. Accompanying herself on fiddle and viola, Griffith was good company. We  heard some lively songs, some great  fiddle tunes deftly executed  and chat all delivered in  robust Yorkshire tones. Mighty stuff and highly entertaining.
Jon Boden 

The evening closed with another communal sing under MC Jon Boden  after which contributions were invited  from then floor. All were welcome. Patrons stood or sat where they were and performed their turn. 'Come on John , a song before you catch your bus', the MC  called  during a brief lull' .

It was a thrilling memorable evening and more   restorative of the spirits than  a stirring organ voluntary or sweetly sung motet from  a choir loft.
Next evening May 2nd Brian Peters

Jon Boden is front man with English folk fusion group Bellowhead. Much food for thought  in  this keynote address to English Folk Expo 2014
