Wrong Direction

Wrong DirectionYou’ve all probably heard of one direction and you may even like their music but are you going in the right direction musically? We decided on Saturday last to go in the wrong direction and head towards clitheroe to find a barbers shop septet, that’s seven if you didn’t know, singing their hearts and lungs out at West Bradford village hall. The group are new and are trying to get themselves noticed so they invited people to an evening with them with no entrance charge. Refreshments, pie and peas, beer and wine, were available at reasonable prices.

The show began at 8.00 and the lads walked in dressed in black shirts and trousers set out with coloured bow ties. We all quietened down ready and eager to listen to the offering which was as follows:-

I never knew.
My wild Irish rose.
Ain’t misbehaving’
Me and my shadow. (then a short break)
Slow motion.
KKK Katy
Sleepytime
Paddling maddlin (pie and peas)
For the longest time.
Alleluia
Tracks of my tears
Feel my love ( another short break)
My evaline
Silver threads among the gold
Yes sir!

These are not very long numbers but we were also shown how to sing barbers shop in a couple of the numbers. We all then realised how difficult it is. After the last number we begged for an oncore and were treated to a reprise of my evaline.

Watch out for these lads, I think they will go far. They might even get your way.
