Well the big news is the preparations for the Hartlepool Folk Festival, being held on the headland from 16 to 18 October 2015. Full details – see www.hartlepoolfolkfest.co.uk for a look at what’s happening. Tickets on sale now for a host of top notch performers. It’s big, it’s happening here in your town. Get a ticket now before they sell out.

In the hiatus before the big weekend, of course there’s loads of other stuff going on. Over at the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street each Monday, Yorkie plays host at the Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club. Excellent evening, loads of instrumentation and talk of manly things like making fire (I don’t know why, they just do.)

And over at the Causeway Inn in Stranton, the Foggy Furze Folk Club have recently played host to Dave Gibb, that troubadour of Wanlockhead, who entertained with his usual wit and great style. Why not come along and join in our regular singarounds, each Tuesday from 8 till late.

Now we’re advised that the Headland Folk Club is changing its venue to the Duke of Cleveland in Church Walk (across the road from St Hilda’s church) and their next gathering will be on 22 May from 8.00 pm.
