May Music Month 2016


Exciting Stuff

Invitation to Members

Well, we have a great opportunity to showcase the musicians from our club on Saturday 28th May for May Music Month, organised by Kings Sound Centre, Levin.

My reason for writing is that the Folk Club is organising four hours of live music outside Caffeinate at the very top of Queen Street (by the Traffic lights and opposite the Warehouse) on Saturday 28th May from 10:00 – 14:00 hrs and I am on the scout for volunteers to play.

We had a great time last year and it’s a good opportunity to get together as musicians as well as promote our folk club locally.

If you would be interested in playing (probably be a minimum of 2-3 songs, depending on how many people are interested) please can you let me know by Sunday 15th May, to give me time to organise the order of play and get back to you with you with a guide on timings etc. We will have the club sound system on hand to plug in, so no need to bring anything except yourselves, your voices and your instruments.

Dale is hosting a relaxed music evening and shared dinner at her Ohau property for those who wish to carry on with Saturday’s fun – further details to come later.
