With the addition of volume 3, there are now 100 of our favourite tunes. Which of these we actually play changes over time, but if you know any of them, we would be happy to play them with you. The versions shown are (more or less) as we play them. You may find they are a bit different from versions you get from elsewhere - that's folk music for you!
List of tunes - all volumes
These are some of the songs written by people who come to the Tuesday Folk Club and/or the Friday/Sunday music sessions. You don't need permission to perform them, nor to reproduce them for non-profit purposes. If you plan to start making money out of them, that would be a different matter!
This is just a small selection to start with. I plan to add more, when I can get the authors to let me have them!
A-banking I will go
A tin of sardines
Gorse and heather
The Old Lover
Victims of war (Cut down in their prime)
A number of original songs by Jim Johnson can be seen on YouTube - go to BlackNed51
The Wednesday Singing Group covers a very wide variety of songs. To give an idea of the range, download some of the songsheets we've been using. Further songsheets are added frequently, and all are available at the sessions - together with the music for some of the songs.
