The Sorries (The Sorries)

By | Published on Thursday 9 August 2018

Quite unexpectedly, I found I knew all the words to all the verses of ‘The Wild Rover’ (the clean version), and this concert really was a voyage of self discovery led by our amiable guides, The Sorries, who are so much more than a Corries tribute band! If any visitors want to meet the locals, get yourselves along to one of their gigs – we like them and the instant, happy, pop-up seventies folk- club ambiance they create. We gleefully sang along to tales of rebellion, execution and war particularly the poignant ‘Green Fields of France’ and the beautiful love song, ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’. Special mention has to go to their entertaining duelling banjos style rock riffs battle. Folkie fun for all!

Quaker Meeting House, until 25 Aug.
