|Meeting Day||2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th Monday|
|Location||Abbot Hall Social Centre|
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.
Come along and join in. Refreshments at 3 pm. Charge £1.
The first hour of our meetings is mainly for practice for musicians but anyone is welcome to come along then.
The first Monday in every month we are invited, as guests, to the Eagle & Child pub in Staveley 1.30 – 5.00 p.m. On the other Mondays we meet at the Abbot Hall Social Centre. Whilst the emphasis is on folk music, we do have blues, humourous songs, self-compositions and some "pop" music. So, whether you play an instrument, sing solo, like to join in with the singing or just want to come along to listen and enjoy, come and join us.
If you want to spend an enjoyable afternoon and have a "bit of a chat" over tea/coffee & biscuits halfway through the session, you know where to come!
