The Levin Folk Music Club meets again Friday, July 14 with special guests Carylann Martin and Richard Taylor.
Carylann has had music throughout her life and has had opportunities to play at events all over New Zealand and with special people. She writes music, sings and plays several instruments (keyboard, accordion, baritone ukulele). She has produced 5 solo albums and has had several awards, including two Gold Guitars!
Appearing with Carylann will be Richard Taylor, from the Kapiti Coast. He picked up the violin at the age of 3 and has continued with one close by his side ever since! He composes from classical genre to making his own electronic violin music.
Richard and Carylann were drawn together by friends from a Hungarian restaurant, who wanted music with a gypsy flavour.
Their music will be a combination of bluesy swing, a splash of gypsy and a dash of country.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and the evening begins at 7:30 pm with a blackboard of performers, where there is an opportunity for musicians to put their name up for an item. The guests perform after supper and the drawing of the raffle.
Admission, which includes a light supper, is $7 for members, $12 for non-members and $3 for students. Cash only (no eftpos facilities).
The venue is the Horowhenua Scottish Society Hall, 155 Bartholomew Road, corner Bartholomew Road and Middlesex Street, Levin.
Come and enjoy a night of fun and music!
