Zoom Singaround and AGM – Saturday 11th September 2021

We can’t run the club in the Beach hall till Auckland is back at Covid Alert Level 1, so tonight will be a singaround via Zoom, and will include a few songs from Beverley Young, but we’ll get her back in for a proper spot in the new year.

Should you need any reminder on what we’ll be missing out on tonight, but hope to see in 2022, I’ve left the information on Beverley below…

Beverley Young (with Bodhran)

Beverley Young has put together a top-class set from her extensive repertoire  of songs to entertain us in September.

Her material will be  mostly from British and Irish traditions, with maybe a sprinkling of trad-style American country added, and a little from New Zealand for good measure. Expect tales of roguish behaviour, work and hardship and love and loss — traditional songs that prove nothing really changes through the years.

Beverley is a long time singer and lover of folk song. She honed her style at the Devonport folk club, has been a favourite performer at Titirangi folk club over the years, and has performed at venues all over the country. She reflects that she has had the good fortune to be able to share the stage along the way with her idols Martin Carthy and Andy Irvine, among others, at festivals and folk clubs around New Zealand, which Beverley regards as her biggest thrill.

She has recorded three albums, the first of which, Bushes And Briars, won the New Zealand Folk Album award.

Beverley will be joined by husband Al Young who will be playing back up on guitar and dobro and maybe a little banjo, and working hard for his money!

So don’t worry if the weather is cold or wet, it will be a warm and friendly night at Titirangi. Beverley is looking forward to singing for you, and to having the pleasure of your company. See you there!

Adam McGrath – Saturday 14th August 2021


Adam McGrath

Adam McGrath is a folk singer stationed wherever he lands. He travels the state highways and byways of New Zealand, Australia, Europe and parts beyond. He hopes for the best, prepares for the worst and believes in the poetry of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles and the fury of word on the page. He lives alone, cooks infrequently and is scared of flags that blow to the right.

His songs have gathered a clutch of good reviews in NZ and overseas, he’s been nominated for a couple of serious music awards (including the Apra Silver Scroll), Graham Reid from the NZ Herald called him ‘NZ’s toughest minded songwriter’, and Barry Saunders from The Warratahs simply described him as “The Truth”.

Although the gathering of such plaudits makes him blush behind his rapidly graying beard, McGrath is very thankful. A people’s player, he works his ass off for any audience he finds himself in front of. He takes the most pride in getting up and putting it down, in both small towns and big, choosing real gigs over showcases and the joy of shaking hands and sharing beers with the folks met along the way.

Described as “two parts Woody Guthrie, one part revival meeting and one part group hug” a McGrath show goes straight for the spirit level in all of us, looking deep for the heart and hoping to reach the thinking part of the brain all the while.
