Article, Foggy Furze Folk Club, Friday, 27 January 2017
It’s a time of restlessness, another club is on the move. However, the Foggy Furze Folk Club is only moving to the room next door for a spell so it’s still meeting at the Causeway in Stranton, Hartlepool, TS24 7QT, each Tuesday at 8.00 pm.
Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club is meeting each Monday at the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street, Hartlepool, TS26 8RA, with various combinations of personnel and instruments at any one time it’s a constantly different sound.
At the FFFC there’s a mix of styles and delivery, whether it’s a piece of prose from the likes of Marriott Edgar or, this week, some seasonal Robert Burns tunes or, if you can work one out, a tune to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster. I’m sure there’s a song about that. And our new room is lovely. Stylish and spacious with a little room for more visitors.
The Headland Folk Club won’t meet now until next Friday, 3 February 2017, from 8.00 pm over at the Duke of Cleveland in Church Walk on the Headland, TS24 0ND. Their guest on this evening will be a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Tony Wilson.
