A singer takes his turn at The Royal Traditions Folk Club in Dungworth
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.

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.
