There are so many folk festivals on in August that it’s a wonder there’s any folkies left in Hartlepool but we manage to resist the allure of places like Whitby (begins this week) and Wadebridge and Shrewsbury (begin next week) to bring you local folk.
Each Monday there is a drumming group held at the Nursery Inn (their float came second in the carnival last weekend) and this is followed by Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club from 8.30 to late, hosted by Yorkie Gibson. Both are weekly events.
The Foggy Furze Folk Club meets each Tuesday at the Causeway in Stranton from 8.00 pm to late. On ordinary club nights we charge £1 entry (which pays for occasional guests) and on guest nights it’s most often £2 entry. Kay De ‘Ath is the host at this club each week and looks forward to welcoming you.
There is regularly live music on over at the Fisherman’s Arms, Southgate on the Headland where Steve and Mandy have blues and open mic nights and the occasional guest and sometimes Fish Rock.
And, of course, we have the Headland Folk Club meeting at the Pot House every other Friday (next meeting on 22 August 2014) where Barrie Archer is your host.
You can keep up with what’s going on by getting onto www.foggyfurzefolk,com or, alternatively, get in touch with me on firstname.lastname@example.org. It’ll be good to hear from you. Over at the FFFC it’s £1 on a singaround night and £2 for a guest night. Go on, get yourself along, it’s the holidays
