“’Cause I buried her face downward, she’s a long way to
go!” These classic lines from Jake Thackray’s, Jolly Captain were just one of the wonderful and hilarious moments from Will Morgan as he embraced us with his songs and anecdotes on Friday night. But this was in the second half, even before he started we were treated to some sad and challenging songs from Bryn Phillips (no surprise there then!). New to us, but very welcome,
Julia and Tim (ladies first) we’ve seen them individually before, but this was a new dimension. The Morecombe Bay song written by
Julia was superb. Barry and Corinne gave us
their usual polished performance and Nothing to Prove lived up to their name after the interval.
To return to the Jolly Captain, the lines in the last verse that set up the punch line are;
“Alas, jolly captain, you're married too soon.
but, well you now know the rest.
