Does anyone want to go wassailing, early in the New Yr?

Don't care where (else) we go, but (fair warning) I have a very strong compulsion to include the electric tree at morelondon, whatever else we do.

I have words for a few wassail songs, but no idea of suitable tunes, and no instrument other than my (enthusiastic but not incredibly tuneful) voice.

Anyone?

...if you press it, they will come.

I'm not sure about wasailing, but I wouldn't mind some proper Carol singing (and no jokes about Mrs R either!)

I fancy Carol singing too. (midnight service on Christmas Eve is never enough!) Would go for the Wassailing as well (only know one Wassailing song though ) as long as it includes copious amounts of libation (for the vocal chords you understand) ie more of a Wassailing pub crawl.
Unladylike Ms. Jo is the one to get on board for this, bet she knows all the tunes and she can play the tin whistle too.

I'm up for wassailing. I wouldn't say I specifically knew any tunes, but I expect I have some music at home, and if not I know where to get some: the Barbican Library has an excellent collection of sheet music, or there's Cecil Sharpe House library for traditional English stuff.

I may even be able to persuade some folky fiddly guitary friends to participate in such a suitably mad caper (we'll leave out the bagpipes this time, I think).

Excellent. But let's have no more mention of Carol singing.

A woman, a dog, a walnut tree.
The harder you beat them,
The better they be.

As they use to say down More London way...
