For the forseeable future all events will be 'Virtual'
Below is our Virtual Programme for the next few weeks. We have settled into the four weekly pattern of Sing-around, Guest artiste, Sing-around, Gathering. With attendees often around 30 or so they have become very popular. Sing-arounds and Gatherings are on Zoom, but guest artistes prefer Facebook Live.
The Zoom Meeting ID will be e-mailed to Members a few days in advance. Visitors are welcome to take part, either as a singer or viewer. Please e-mail us before 7.00p.m. on the day and we will supply the Zoom details. The e-mail link is: firstname.lastname@example.org
This year the club commenced artiste concerts via Facebook Live. Not everyone subscribes to Facebook and some may have missed the concert.
We are now making these available for everyone to view at their leisure.

Tommy Sands is a Northern Irish folk singer, songwriter, radio broadcaster, and political activist. Tommy was the prime songwriter for The Sands Family, one of Ireland's most influential folk groups of the 1960s and 1970s. Tommy has hosted Country Cêilí, a radio show on Downtown Radio in Newtownards since 1976. His song "There Were Roses" has been described as "... certainly one of the best songs ever written about the "Irish Problem"". In May 2002 he received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Nevada, Reno for his outstanding work as musician and ambassador for peace and understanding. May 18 of each year has been proclaimed Tommy Sands Day in Reno.
