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: email@example.com
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.
1st February 7.30pm|
A chance for everyone and anyone to sing a song, play a tune or tell a story. There is no theme for this event so you have endless scope to choose what you wish. We look forward to welcoming performers and listeners.
8th February 7.30pm|
Anthony John Clarke
We welcome Anthony John Clarke back to the club, he is a frim favourite of ours. All Anthony John Clarke ever wanted to be was a writer of songs - from the moments he heard “Eve of Destruction” and “Like A Rolling Stone”. From that point, he was committed to that life. Irish-born and educated, he became a teacher but song writing remained his raison d’etre. By his mid-thirties he found his way into the music profession and was discovered in turn by audiences all over the world. Twenty-five years on he has a string of self-penned albums to his credit, and a legion of fans.
15th February 7.30pm|
The them for this event is: "What does February bring us? It's still cold, but it's the age of Aquarius, the month of love, and Valentine's Day. What can you offer for February?" As always, everyone is welcome to participate or just listen in.
22nd February 7.30pm|
Gathering Concerts are now firmly established in our virtual programme. Three or four performers will entertain for the evening, each bringing something new and unique from their catalogue of songs and music. The performers are:
1st March 7.30pm|
Kenny Speirs has been a well-known figure on the folk circuit for over 25 years ever since playing with the superb John Wright Band in the early nineties. Kenny earned a deserved reputation as a sensitive guitarist, singer and arranger, also finding time to release two solo albums to wide acclaim. In 2002 Kenny formed Real Time with his partner Judy Dinning. The six albums from this collaboration, before Judy's untimely death in 2013, were a highlight in a wonderful career. Kenny remains one of the leading figures of the Borders folk scene. He still runs Denholm Folk Club, is Director of Denholm Folk Festival, and the Scottish Borders Hogmanay Festival, The Land The Light The Locals.
