The fabled finks

Some pics of our newly formed skiffle/hillbillie band from (our 2nd) gig in the local boozer last night

,We perform classic hillbillie, blues, skiffle songs such as diggin' my potatoes, down by the riverside, railroad bill, gamblin man, goodnight irene, midnight special, jesse james, will the circle be unbroken, long lost john, putting on the style, when the sun goes down, plus a few more.
The idea is simply to have a good time, no big egos or boring musical self importance, a good time playing good upbeat foot tappin' music, with a few shootings thrown in too.
The band consists of myself-

(paul menear)- guitar/vox.
(andy keatley)- mandolin/vox.
('Big' ron thompson)- double bass/vox.
(ade ward)- fiddle/banjo/vox.

So ladies and gentlemen i present (pics of at least)-

THE FABLED FINKS



Cheers

Cheers for that henrys revenge, and cheers to chris for recording them.

Anyone who knows woodie guthries 'this land is your land' will pretty soon realise from listening to our version last night, that my mind went blank when it came to singing the right words:shake:, ah well, we had a good time and by that time in the evening, i dont think anyone really noticed!!!!

Heres a few pics of us from last night (pics by ade wressell).

were at the redmore pub in burntwood on sunday,(24th), late afternoon/early evening, again ron is still hanging off the mountains in the alps, so we have russ on double bass, we are sharing the bill with other local band 'The lock in'
Again, as usual, please come along if you are at a loose end.
