Article, Foggy Furze Folk Club, Friday, 13 January 2017…..
Now we’re all back at work and the holidays are over we need a way to occupy ourselves till the next major holiday season at Easter time.
You could do worse than take yourself out to one of the local folk clubs on a mid-week evening. The company are musically minded and the atmostphere is cheerful.
Take the Pool Folk and Acoustic Music Club. Over at the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street, Hartlepool, a lot of the regulars play several instruments and they all join in with gusto if you need support in your efforts.
In the Foggy Furze Folk club, we’re not averse to verse or self-penned songs. Lots of contributors sing a capella, plenty create their own arrangements. We have some very creative people among our number and you never know what’s next in the playing order. We meet in the Causeway each Tuesday from 8.00 pm onwards.
And over at the Duke of Cleveland on Church Walk on the headland, the Headland Folk Club meet on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. There’s a great mix of traditional and singaround staple songs with some instrumental interludes to help you get your weekend started with a bang.
