Folk Music & Song
Co-ordinators: John and Pamela Brown
Meetings: Weekly, Monday, 1.00 – 4.00 p.m., Abbott Hall Social Centre
This group will re-start on 6th September, meeting every Monday to enjoy music for instrumentalists, singers and listeners.
At 1 pm we have a workshop for instrumentalists who wish to go over tunes we will later play together.
Then at 2 pm we all join together and either play, sing, or just listen, in a sing-along of folk songs interspersed with solo, couple, or group turns from singers or instrumentalists who contribute to an enjoyable afternoon.
So far we have had the pleasure of the company of melodeon, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, flute, recorder and tin whistle players, some excellent solo singers and a back row chorus that join in with great enthusiasm.
There is a charge of £1.50 for room hire and £ 0.20 for refreshments.
Come along and join in.
UPDATE 4 APRIL
This group has changed its name to FOLK MUSIC & SONG due to its having evolved over the years. Whilst the group still plays and sings mainly Folk Music, other types of music are now included in the repertoire.
