Member’s Only Evening – September
- 19th September 2023
- 6pm – 8pm
Witty Ditties is a one-man music and comedy show devised by Greg Beedle. It has been performed for charity at several venues in Somerset and beyond.
This is a light-hearted and personal selection of funny pieces from past masters, including Ivor Novello, Jake Thackray, Victoria Wood, Richard Stilgoe, and Lonnie Donegan.
Primarily a guitarist, Greg also has an enthusiastic, if rudimentary, go on the piano for those songs that demand it. After seeing the show, a goddaughter of Michael Flanders said how thrilled the great man would have been with it. He would have relished knowing that people were still enjoying the works he created with Donald Swann.
(A ukulele may also sneak onto the stage for some cheeky George Formby songs!)
He plans to include one or two newer tunes, such as by the great Tim Minchin. There may even be an original composition in there as well.
