Over at the Foggy Furze Folk Club, at the Atheneum Club in Church Street, Hartlepool, we were mightily entertained by Hilary Blythe and Bob Hall back on 11 October 2011.  There was lots of boggie-ing and woogie-ing and some real old blues stuff which I’m sure went back to Bessie Smith, one of the first recorded jazz/blues voices.  Some excellent tunes and we can recommend Hilary and Bob to any other blues or boogie woogie lovers out there.       Our next guest is Trev Reed, who hails from north of the Tyne, and he shall be entertaining us on Tuesday, 8 November 2011.

This Friday, 21 October 2011, is Headland Folk Club night so get yourselves across to the Cos for an evening of song and fun with all your friends.

This Saturday, 22 October 2011, there is an evening’s entertainment, led by Skyran but with others taking part, over at the Nursery in Hopp street, Hartlepool.  This will be a cracking night, these ones led by Skyran are always a good fun night.  And don’t forget the Nursery also plays host to the Pools Folk and Acoustic Club each Monday for your delectation and delight.

You can 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 and you’re welcome all over town.

The Foggy Furze Folk Club went on the second leg of an exchange one Wednesday, up the A19 to the Berkley Tavern in Whitley Bay.  What a wonderful evening we all had.  We received a wonderful welcome and repaid them with songs and music in abundance.  And we got cake too!  The star of the evening had to be John Detain on his accordion who, I’m sure, still has them convinced he only speaks French!           Our next guests on 11 October 2011 are Hilary Blythe and Bob Hall.  They’ve been described as having the hottest boogie woogie piano on the circuit.  Bob plays piano and Hilary plays bass.  Should be foot stomping.  Can’t wait.  And it’s only £2

Now the nights are drawing in, one of the most sociable places to be on a Friday is the Cosmopolitan pub on the headland where Barrie Archer waits with a warm welcome at the Headland Folk Club.  Get yourself over there tonight, 7 October 2011, where Barrie will be pleased to greet you.

And don’t forget the Nursery Inn.  Every Monday evening you’re invited to the Pools Folk and Acoustic Club night.    You’ll always be made welcome so why not 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.
