DEATH COUNT NIGHT AT THE BROADSIDE MAY 2ND 2018

broadside body count"Let's see just how many song characters do die in a night of folk music. Wednesday 2nd May will be the Broadside 'DEATH COUNT' night. Certain rules will apply, vague references to hundreds dying won't do."

UPDATE:

Everybody made the effort to keep the number of deaths low and prove that folk songs don't have an excess of gloom, death and destruction. Death Count night at the Broadside Folk Club

Despite some dispute over some of the figures we managed to keep the body count down to a mere 550 3/4 - that was until John and Angie popped one in right at the end which alluded to the killing of 9 million witches. Was this late googlie valid, the M/C thought maybe not but the room felt otherwise.

FINAL TOTALS

Count without witch persecution: a very reasonable 551.75
Count with witch persecution: a whopping 9,000,551.75

OUR NEWLY REFURBISHED ROOM

Our club room to the right side of the Old House At Home is newly refurbished - new radiators, beautifully restored parque floor, some new furnishings and probably the best pub loos in Portsmouth. We have had many very good nights since the re-opening by our new landlords.

Come and join us, you will find that all comers receive a good Broadside welcome.

Start time: Ideally please try to arrive anytime from 7.30pm for an 8pm kickoff. You are of course welcome to arrive later and your first turn will be in the next round.

Our format is a singaround and the M/C usually passes from person to person around the room.

Our Music is folk - traditional and modern - so we welcome singers of folk songs, players of folk tunes, acoustic instruments, single person or joint offerings. We do try to keep our idenitity as an acoustic folk music club.
