So, what to talk about? All over town, musicians are starting to seriously get to grips with their Christmas repertoire, determined to give of their best.

Over at the Duke of Cleveland in Church Walk on the headland this evening you can join the Headland Folk Club in their regular fortnightly get together when Paul or Barrie will co-ordinate the evening. Their next club evening after tonight will be 4 December 2015.

And in the Nursery Inn, Hopps Street, Hartlepool, the Pools Folk and Acoustic Club will be pleased to see you on any Monday you choose to visit. They are proud to boast that they are open on any Monday, even a Bank Holiday Monday so that could be worth noting for 28 December 2015 and 4 January 2016. Yorkie will be there to oversee the gathering.

Call in at the Causeway Inn in Stranton any Tuesday and you have the option of enjoying an evening with the members of the Foggy Furze Folk Club. And if you’re in the Causeway on 23 December 2015, there’s to be a carol/Christmas song service to initiate the Yuletide celebrations for the locals.

You’re welcome in any of the clubs, whether it’s just to listen or play or sing. At the Foggy Furze Folk Club, it’s £1 per evening for a singaround and £2 for a guest night. You can contact me on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com or read this article again on www.foggyfurzefolk.com. We start at 8.00 pm each Tuesday and look forward to seeing you.

Now the folk festival is over (have you got your tickets for next year? 21 to 23 October 2016) things are going to be a bit quiet on the folk front until the Christmas season.

It’s a good time to find out about our local clubs and what happens in them.  Were there any instruments that caught your eye at the festival?  Will you be putting a new guitar or uke on the list for Santa?

There are lots of places you can go to learn to play instruments within the town but once you feel performance ready, then where do you go?    Well, in Hartlepool we’re lucky enough to have several options.  Every other Friday (next meeting is next Friday, 13 November 2015) you can attend at the Pot House for the Headland Folk Club, run by Paul and Barrie.                                                         And every Monday you can visit the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street, Hartlepool, and attend at Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club where Yorkie will be pleased to host the evening.

And each Tuesday you’re welcome in the Causeway Inn in Stranton, Hartlepool to meet with the Foggy Furze Folk Club for their weekly get together.  This is hosted by Kay De ‘Ath.

You’re welcome in any of the clubs, whether it’s just to listen or play or sing.  At the Foggy Furze Folk Club, it’s £1 per evening for a singaround and £2 for a guest night.  You can contact me on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com or read this article again on www.foggyfurzefolk.com.  We start at 8.00 pm each Tuesday and look forward to seeing you.
