Great Sounds - at The Goodmanham Arms
The Goodmanham Arms is just a few minutes drive from Market Weighton - an old fashioned market town in the heart of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds. If you are oblivious to the history of Englands tallest man, stop for a few minutes to see the statue of Giant Bradley before heading off down Red Lane. Take a a right turn on to Goodmanham Road and follow the signs.
I ventured to investigate the music scene at this extraordinatry pub. This was the third Thursday of the month - one of the frequent music evenings. Amazing. Regulars with guitars. Right. Half a glass of Old Peculiar later and the banter was in full flow - interspaced with the sound of instruments being tuned.
Without ceremony and unsignalled, the ping ping and strum-strum became more coordinated as one of the small band of locals picked up a rhythm. One by one, the others found their place and a recognisable song flowed from the brothers in tune.
Voices were added. First one then another. It sounded quite professional. Obviously this was a band practicing for an upcoming gig. Or so I thought. In fact, it turned out to be just a jam session by blokes from the surrounding area - drawn by word of mouth. Impressive? It was.
A few days later, I returned to hear a band that had been booked to provide Saturday evening entertainment. A last minute hitch resulted in cancellation. Disaster? Not for a moment. A packed pub was treated to an un-scripted show by regulars. As the beer flowed nobody noticed the difference. Amply demonstrated, was the determined spirit that characterises the Goodmanham Arms - and the clear success it enjoys in attracting visitors
Above: 3rd Thursday in the month. Sing-a-long-a -regulars
