Louise Jordan; 'No Petticoats Here', Lewes Saturday Folk Club




Louise writes intelligent, beautiful songs, sings & plays guitar & piano.'No Petticoats Here' (www.nopetticoatshere.co.uk.) is a project that tells the stories of remarkable women of the First World War through song. These songs recognise the extraordinary and inspirational achievements of women working in many spheres. From the women footballers who kept the sport alive during the First World War to the aspiring teenage journalist who dressed as a soldier and travelled to the Western Front on a bicycle, the women who risked their lives to treat the wounded yards from the German Front Line, an inventor and engineer, a master spy and the women who made the weapons of war.

'No Petticoats Here' is in two forty-five minute spots and the rest of the evening is filled by members of the audience performing a song or tune if they wish.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in.

We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you 5 off an evening when admission is 5 or more. It's 6 tonight.

Of course it's wise for it to go ahead. Otherwise terrorists will keep carrying out atrocities such as this to change anything... more
