Hey there, what’s happening on the folkie front in Hartlepool?                                         Well, this evening you can take yourself off to the Duke of Cleveland in Church Walk over on the Headland where Paul O’Neill will be ready to help you start the weekend with a song.  The Headland Folk Club meets every two weeks and starts at 8.00 pm.

Over at the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street, Hartlepool each Monday at 8.30, Yorkie and his crew are ready to help you cope with the fact that it’s the first day of the working week by hosting Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club.  There are regular jam sessions, more instruments than you can shake a stick at and a good camaraderie.

And in the Causeway in Stranton, each Tuesday at 8.00 the Foggy Furze Folk Club meets for their regular helping of folk – English, Traditional, Irish and American.  There your writer, Kay De ‘Ath, is waiting to guide you through a great evening among cherished friends.  No obligation to play or sing and we’re very good at creating  an enjoyable selection of songs, with some verse thrown in for good measure.

Come along and enjoy the evening.  Over at the Foggy Furze Folk Club we charge £1 on a club night 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.
