Article, Foggy Furze Folk Club, Friday, 23 September 2011    –   Another splendid guest night was enjoyed by all present, when our very own  local band, “On The Edge”, entertained us with a constant stream of classic and upbeat numbers, that had everyone singing along.  Guitars, a bass, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, penny whistles and shakers all contributed to make each song their own.  The one that really hit the spot was their take on a “Show of Hands” number, “Cousin Jack”.  Well done, guys and gal!

Make a note in your diary for our next Guest Night on 11 October 2011 with Hilary Blythe and Bob Hall. comment From Ian The Bob Hall Show consists of Bob on piano and vocals, and Hilary Blythe on bass and vocals “Britain’s leading blues and boogie woogie pianist” Yorkshire Post

This week the FFFC is taking a minibus of about 14 of us on a club swap to the Berkley Taverners at Whitley Bay.  This is a return visit as they came to the Foggy Furze Folk Club in the Atheneum Club in Church Street back in July.  That was a smashing musical night when we made some new friends.  It’s all very exciting and we’ll have a report for that for you in our next article. Just to let you know, it’s Headland Folk Club night over at the Cosmopolitan this evening, 23 September 2011, where Barrie will be pleased to greet you.

So stay in touch with the folkie goings-on on www.foggyfurzefolk.com or chat to me on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com.  It’s only £1 on a singaround over at the FFFC or £2 for our guest nights.
