Virtual Folk Club – Saturday 13th June 2020

Alert level 1 not withstanding (good word that) we’re doing our June meetings via Zoom still.

Hall, Guitar, Pipes.

Tonight you can be with us on Zoom again!

Screens “open” at 19.30 for chats and intro, and for singers to declare their intention to sing to MC Cathy Munro.

Music kicks off at 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.

Ronél Hunter will look in, in advance of her show next month (back in the hall!)

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’, scroll down to ‘Using Zoom’ for more about this.

NO BREAK – we won’t stop for a cuppa or other brief interruption – you can probably still get your own refreshments if needed and still keep one ear and eye on what’s going on at the club. We reckon this still leaves plenty of time at the beginning and end of the evening for chat and catching up.

So it’s floorsingers all the way down. Or wall to wall if you prefer.

Then at some point late in the evening, when the last song has been sung and the last chat had, we all hit ‘Leave Meeting’ and are magically transported back into our separate realities:- no chairs to put away, no long drive home.

Here are more details on using Zoom, if you still need ’em.

Circle of Friday night musicians in the Beach Hall
Circle of Friday night musicians in the Titirangi Beach Hall

A bit of a singaround, a bit of a jam session, a bit of what you fancy does you good on a Friday evening.

What do you do?
– We chat, sing, play music and support each other
Do I need to be a member?
– No, Everyone is Welcome, if you like it, join later
Do I need to play an instrument?
– No but if you’re learning we can encourage and support you
Am I too old?
– No, you’re never too old or too young to sing or to make music

We’re a totally informal, small friendly group of people who like to sing and play music. This is a good place for experienced musicians to meet up and enjoy playing together.

If you do not sing or play and would like to then here you’ll find encouragement. There is never any pressure and you may wish to visit a few times to get confidence or you may already be confident, it does not matter, no one will criticise, only support.
