Barry once poignantly observed that every Folk Club Bonn could be considered a "Gesamtkunstwerk" and February was certainly no exception. As the evening came to a close our Folk Club Bonn anthem, "Jock Stewart" was even enhanced by a tuba solo..
Every single person in the room was a descendant of someone who, once upon a time, had been born in Africa and must have had a certain "get-up-and-go" in order to have got up, and headed north.
Whoever "they" and "we" all are, or once were, I'll wager nobody, including me, was expecting a tuba solo during Jock Stewart so far south and east of Scotland in a small town in Germany.
We sing "Jock Stewart" usually at the close of each Folk Club Bonn but it is the very first time that we have performed it with a tuba solo, so special thanks to GeWe Spiller for blowing those low notes.
If you wish to join in at the end of a first Friday of the month evening then Folk Clubbers can find "Jock Stewart", both the lyrics and the notes lower down on the right hand side of this page under :
