Care Home Team 2 Set List

Troubadours?

People are asking what on earth this is. Its a new playing format for anyone who regularly plays and accompanies themselves with an instrument requiring no organisation, minimal notice and hardly any kit. A bit like BBC Songwriters Circle. You should know half a dozen songs by heart and just plug in and go. Those "Troubadours" who attend would just take it in turns to do a song with virtually no gaps between songs, no tablets or bits of paper. Why memorise the songs? Because thats the way you know you are rehearsed enough, it saves time and music stands, and it looks so much more professional.

RML Acts?

These are gigs where RML Acts who are rehearsed can perform, and if you let us know we can design a programme that fits you in. You must be self contained and practised so we look professional. If oversubscribed we will have to allocate based on everyone getting a crack during the course of a season, and degree of preparedness. Its not "open mic" or "RML Session live on stage" for example, it should be a bit more organised than that. A PA is often provided although one of us will bring something anyway.

Park closing 7.30pm Performers and audience most welcome! Like open mics, performers do 3 songs and then we go round again if there is time. There is no sign up, its first come first served. I would appreciate an idea of numbers, but its not essential. There is a small cost of £3 for performers BUT AUDIENCE ARE FREE. And there will be a bucket if anyone wants to help out the performers. You are welcome to bring your own refreshement, including alcohol within reason, so its not an expensive night out really. One other thing, don't park your car within the park , it closes at 7.30pm!
