The Summer Solstice is nigh! Tomorrow, June 21, will be the longest day of the year–so far as official daylight is concerned. (The overall possible hours in the day remains at 24, of course.) But there’s no time like the present (June 20) to enjoy it! We like to think of ourselves as a bit ahead of the pack anyhow.
Celebrate this central point in the year with a midweek pint, some fish and chips, and the folk jam! It’s Wednesday night, and that means that Billy Watkins and the folk players will be in the house. They’ll set up in a corner and play informally but, as always, with great spirit. Guitars, fiddles, mandolins, and many people adding their voices to the chorus. It’s a grand time.
