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 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!
