    Default POSSIBLE THREAD FOR SOTU 459 - Fairy Tales and Folk Tales

    hello, it's me, BEV, i'm just re-posting Ms Bean's season here on the seasons main page, currently it is over on the UU contests main page, and might be a bit tricky for everyone to find.

    i dunno if Ms Bean will continue with this thread, or re-post a new thread here herself, but i thought i'd just do this so the theme is up where more people will see it. Ms Bean, i hope this is OK!!!

    You can:
    a) bring us your own originals, based on fairy tale material;
    b) perform songs from Disney movies, pantomimes, ballet, etc.
    c) bring music by bands with fairy tale characters in their name (giants, Prince, etc)

    Normal rules apply:

    1. You can post your videos from 12:00 AM Sunday Hawaii time.
    The fairy godmother is welcoming songs until the clock chimes midnight, Sunday December 6th.

    2. Collaborations and multi-tracking are welcome.

    3. No song limit.

    Season 458 is still in full swing, so get that uke tuned up now!

    Sorry about that. Hopefully it's smooth sailing from here. We'll continue with this thread instead of opening yet another one. Thanks for jumping in, Lynda. I've closed the first thread to minimise confusion.

    Well, it's a great idea for the week, Sabine ... especially considering the dangerous "fairy tale" which is currently being promulgated in a certain land, far, far away!!! (Oops, sorry ... not supposed to be political here!) Looking forward to finding some songs ... hope you will enjoy your first "hosting week!"

    I used to live in Durham (the one in North East England!). From the city, in the distance, you can see Penshaw Hill, and Penshaw Monument at the top. Legend has it that a young John Lambton went fishing one Sunday instead of going to church, the naughty man. He caught a strange little fish that he didn't recognise, so threw it away. Said fish grew into a huge worm, large enough to wrap itself around Penshaw Hill seven times, that terrorised the locals. To cut a long story short, Lambton eventually killed the worm, but a curse was put on his family in the process.

    Anyway, there's a song about it, written for a Pantomime by C.M.Leumane in 1867 (he said authoritatively while glancing at Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambton_Worm).



    I don't really have the accent for this. I did it anyway.

    "Everyone's a Giant" - a cover of a Michael P Smith song
    Michael P Smith wrote this song for the stage adaptation of "The Selfish Giant". This was the opening number. He played it on a mandolin but here I'm using an 8 String Kamaka ukulele.
    I've also raised the key from G to C
