Thanks to all those who came to Singing Around the Table in April! We had two new singers and a great time singing seasonal Japanese songs - Cha-tsumi (tea-picking song) and two versions of Koinobori (flying carp streamers!) – as well as a selection from the regular repertoire along with guitar, wood-bass, flute and recorder. Aoki-san stayed on and played guitar for an impromptu session of Japanese folk revival songs – Takaishi Tomoya and so on - so in the end we all went home way past our bedtimes!
