Song Workshop at Ansells Farm, December 2012: Whatever the Weather…

Whether the weather be fine,
Whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not!

What’s guaranteed to figure in a typically British conversation? Yes – the weather! No other nation seems to talk, write, complain and even sing about it quite as much, so we thought it would be fun to explore songs (not only English ones, of course) which celebrate the best and worst aspects of this defining feature of our lives. From stormy weather to sunny summer idylls, from snow and frost to dismal drizzle, whether it calls for a solar topee or a fur coat, there’s bound to be a song to reflect every mood and style. Dig out some old favourites or dare a new discovery or two – the run-up to Christmas is the perfect time for dreaming of tropical climes or winter wonderlands – the choice is yours…
