Got all your Easter/spring songs ready – we’ve hit a new season.

Over at the Duke of Cleveland you can gather with the Headland Folk Club to start the Easter holiday on Good Friday, this evening, in Church Walk on the headland where Paul and Barrie will play host for the evening.  Get yourself along and have fun.

Now, yes, Monday is a bank holiday but Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club is open even when it’s a bank holiday so get yourself along to the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street in Hartlepool for a great evening of music and banter with Yorkie and his fellow musicians.

And by Tuesday most of us will be back at work relating tales of our various escapades over the break.  Why not come along to the Foggy Furze Folk Club and let us know what you got up to.  We meet each Tuesday over at the Causeway in Stranton in Hartlepool and start at about 8.00 pm.  We’re always open to visitors, either those who wish to perform or those who simply wish to listen and enjoy the music.

You’re welcome in any of the clubs, whether it’s just to listen or play or sing.  It’s only £1 per evening for a singaround and £2 for a guest night at the FFFC.  You can contact me on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com or read this article again on www.foggyfurzefolk.com.

Remember to celebrate your favourite saint next week on the 17th with a glass or two of black stout.  (I’m sure several options are available.)  ‘Top of the morning to ya’ won’t be quite the same this year with no Terry Wogan to respond, ‘And the rest of the day to yourself!’.

As a reflection of the imminent celebration, I’m guessing there will lots of Irish tunes being sung and played over the next week or so at all three of our local clubs.

Why not get yourself along to the Headland Folk Club tonight, over in Church Walk on the Headland and just check out the diddly diddly music quota?  They’re there from about 8 till late

And in the Nursery, Hopps Street, Hartlepool, the Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club will be rolling out lots of tunes to tap your feet to and think of leaping about.

But at the Foggy Furze Folk Club, held from 8.00 pm each Tuesday in the Causeway, Stranton, Hartlepool, I have no doubt we’ll be celebrating with gusto.  I’m sure there’ll be a green, white and gold shimmer over the room.

Obviously, in all instances, other genres of music will genially listened to but there’ll be extra attention paid to any tunes of an emerald hue.

You’re welcome in any of the clubs, whether it’s just to listen or play or sing.  It’s only £1 per evening for a singaround and £2 for a guest night at the FFFC.  You can contact me on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com or read this article again on www.foggyfurzefolk.com.
