Two Weeks to Go !

Two weeks to go! The inaugural meeting for our Fordingbridge Folk Club is just two weeks away - Friday October 7th. The big news this week is that Avonway have confirmed that the bar will be open for the evening - which is a huge relief. Whoever heard of folk music without a bar!

The response to my request for people to let me know if they are able to play and/or sing on our first evening has been fantastic and we have about ten people or groups who have already said that they will perform for us. Even more would be welcome - so please email me if you would like to do a spot - or just turn up on the evening with your instrument or voice - the more people who perform the better the club will be.

We have distributed lots of posters and leaflets - thanks to all those who have helped - and have been in contact with all the folk organisations in the area so there should be a good crowd.

I hope to see as many of you as possible on the 7th.
