On the first Wednesday of every month an acoustic night is held at the Jolly Potters in Newcastle – and on the third Wednesday of each month they meet at The Museum pub – and last night I went to listen to them again.
There are some very good musicians amongst them – to be fair, none are bad – and have many types of stringed instruments playing; guitars, mandolins, banjos, fiddles etc.. There is a ‘drummer’ and others play the harmonica as well.
Their music choice is very wide ranging including some self-penned songs.
One person is particular turned up last night for the first time and gave a great performance of ‘Vigilante Man’.
You don’t have to play, or sing, if you go along to see them. There are no mics, no backing tracks, just acoustic playing and singing.
