With Lockdown Level 4 now a receding memory we’re all set to bring you our Lockdown Level 3 Club Night for May 2020.
No guest this month – we have a night of floorsingers & MAYBE a short pre-recorded session from one of the guests we have semi-planned for later in the year, if Covid-19 allows that to happen.
What we can tell you WILL happen is:-
Doors open as usual at 7.30 = Join our Zoom meeting – details below.
Mix and Mingle till 8.00PM talking, saying hello, catching up with each other, and giving our name to the MC (President Noel Armstrong) if we want to perform.
First half from 8.00PM – Usual story, floorspots comprising 2 songs, max 10 minutes, you’ll have the focus for the duration of your spot, rest of attendees muted.
We’ll be UN – muting everybody after each song, give you all a chance to clap, cheer, stamp your feet and holler, and generally show your appreciation in the traditional manner.
We reserve the right to cut short a floorspot if the quality of a performers internet connection isn’t up to it. We’ve discovered Zoom works best for music if tell it to use ‘Original Sound’, you can find out why and how to do that on our April Friday Folk’n’Jam page.
We’ll take a break somewhere around 9.15ish for a leg stretch, cuppa time, convenience break, etc. All attendees will be un-muted at half time, to give the opportunity to connect again, but take care, everybody talking at once will turn into an unintelligible mush.
You’ll have to provide your own tea/coffee/milo/biscuits.
Second Half – same as the first. Maybe with some different people, or maybe with the same, depending on how many of you turn up and want to perform. We’ve really enjoyed that holding our April Club-night and Friday Folk this way allows people who would never be anywhere near Titirangi at the right time to turn up and entertain us.
So enjoy the second half then that’s it – no chairs to put away, no long drive home. We may even take the opportunity to get another round of songs in.
So, how to join up? We’re probably all getting far more practised at this by now than we all were this time last month, but here’s some brief instructions if needed.
You can join from your web browser via the link below, but it works best if you download the app ‘Zoom Cloud Meetings’ from your Android/IOS store, or from Zoom.us for your PC. Once you have it, enter the MeetingID and you’re in.
You don’t need to sign up for an account to be able to participate, and if you don’t have a camera and microphone you can still listen and watch.
Titirangi Folk Music Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Looking For Alaska
were to have been our guests tonight – we’re still hoping we can bring them to you later in the year.
Members Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard offer up a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, intensified by their on-stage chemistry. The duo’s familiarity, closeness and authenticity is fuelled by their real-life romance, creating a magnetic performance style that captivates their audience time and time again, and has seen them open for the likes of Fly My Pretties, Herbs and Tiny Ruins, and as a featured act at the Canterbury Folk Festival.
Having performed together extensively since they bonded during a recording assignment at music school in 2012, Aaron and Amy embarked upon their newest musical endeavour Looking For Alaska two years ago, and have since worked tirelessly to create a collection of original material, ranging from thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs, to poignant heart-rending ballads drenched in melancholy.
