Coming Soon to TFMC


Celtic Ferret – Saturday 13th August 2022

Celtic Ferret

Celtic Ferret are relieved to be unlocked, loaded and primed to fire off some of the songs from their second album “A Few Miles Together”.

They will bring some with them because they are really quite proud of it and you can buy it for $20!

Celtic Ferret are Jean Reid and Ian Bartlett whose repertoire is steeped in the folk tradition.

They paint evocative musical pictures of gruesome deaths, riots, crimes, love and loss, customs and characters all woven with earthy harmonies and thoughtful instrumentation – and a touch of humour! If only history had been taught this way at school!

They have been guests at numerous festivals and clubs around New Zealand and are happy to be at TFMC at last.

Whet your appetite for the gig and the album with some snippets on the album launch page at:-

AGM, Terry Free, Janet Thomson – Saturday 10th September 2022

I

Terry Free

Twice nominated for the British Alternative Folk Awards ’Best Club Entertainer’ singer and storyteller extraordinaire Terry Free returns to Titirangi Folk Club in his own right to take you on a journey of Traditional songs, Music Hall ditties and beautifully woven yarns embroidered into a silken tapestry of chirpy cockney “bollix”

Janet Thomson

When Janet sang a couple of self-penned contemporary folk songs at the Bunker a few years ago, the Devonport folk listened politely and offered encouragement with friendly applause.   But something was amiss.  Her songs were unfamiliar.   She needed some proper folk songs.  Next time she sang of Little Matty Groves, and Mary of the Wild Moor.  Such characters were very familiar to folkies, and she felt much more in the company of friends.  Though Janet loves to sing beautiful contemporary songs from the female perspective, she continues to wander off that path into dangerously patriarchal times in search of melodic and macabre tunes for your listening pleasure.

Martin Curtis – Saturday 8th October 2022

MARTIN CURTIS
Singer Songwriter

Martin Curtis moved to New Zealand in 1976, after a few years living in the outback of Australia, where he founded and ran the Tennant Creek Folk festival. Soon after settling at Cardrona in Central Otago, he started writing his own songs about the history and environment of his newly adopted country. One of his very first songs, “Gin & Raspberry” soon became a folk standard and has been covered by at least 15 artistes around the world. To date he has released 15 albums, all of them comprising songs mainly about NZ. He also founded and continues to run the annual Cardrona Folk festival, now in its 45th year.

He has appeared at festivals and clubs all around New Zealand, and has also done 14 major tours of the U.K, performing anywhere between Cornwall to the Shetland Islands.

His concerts combine quiet thoughtful songs about NZ and beyond with hilarious bush poetry and other humorous material he has picked up along the way. He always tries to entertain his audiences with a varied repertoire, something he learned from his long time friend and inspiration Eric Bogle.
