Thanks Linda.
Did everyone else that went enjoy it?
All comments/feedback, suggestions etc are welcome.
Hopefully it will be a sucsess.
Thanks Mick for doing such a good job of running the first night, it was good to see a few new faces there, feedback on the night was good, everyone said they enjoyed it.

There is a few ideas we could try out, to get people going/keep interest ie=
There is a lot of folk music experts locally such as Steve Gardham, Dr Chris Bearman, Jim Eldon, Henry Aryton, Harry Gurevitch etc.
Many of these have written books, had academic papers published etc, we could maybe invite some of them there occasionaly to give a talk.
Beginners Workshops, in various instruments,
Singing, and or Songwriting workshops.
Theme Nights, ie Irish Night, Scottish Night etc.
Folk Music Quiz, and raffles during the break each night.
Any other ideas are welcome.

To let people know about it, we could put posters in music shops and places like that.
