41st Worsthorne Arts & Crafts Fair

The festival theme was the 60s as demonstrated in the many displays in the church.P1020870

Of course being the sixties Burnley FC had to be featured!P1020868

And as musicians we were delighted to see reminders of the swinging sixties when British pop music ruled the world.P1020872

And with that in mind our set was very much 1960s flavoured.P1020884 P1020917

We kicked off with Chuck Berry’s “Memphis Tennessee” and the classic “Save the Last Dance” followed by a couple by the  Everlys, the second a duet with our friend Tony Cummings.P1020890

We were then joined by Caroline Taylor for that old Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood classic “Summer Wine”.P1020897

Then with both Caroline and Tony we performed that great Phil Ochs’ song “There but for fortune” (I love that three-part harmony at the end) and the Bobby Darin classic “Things“.P1020903

Barrie rounded off the first half with a great rendition of Tom Rush’s song – made famous by Scott Walker – “No Regrets“.P1020915

The second half was a 1960s medley with a quiz for the audience to identify the singer and the song.

So we rounded the evening off with songs from the Kinks, the Beach Boys, Sam Cooke, Little Eva, the Mindbenders, Cliff Richard, Herman’s Hermits and the Beatles.P1020923

Those were the days my friend!

A great evening enjoyed by everyone.
