Right.. there has been an article in our local paper about this up coming Folk Night. Below is a direct transcrip of it. I really hope this answers everyones queries.
Retired Head on song to unearth fresh folk talent

Retired headteacher Tony Heald wants to teach Barnsley people a lesson - about folk music.

He is trying to unearth the folk singers of the future and is holding an audtion night on february 5 at the Blah Bar on Market hill when the main guest is international singer and musician Dave Burland.

Tony said: "I want to find new musicians and singers in "The Folk Style". Not only am I hoping to recapture the audience of the seventies and eighties, but also a new, young audience and talent".

Tickets and information can be obtained on 07791 447406

Tony founded the first folk club at the Alhambra pub in 1962 which eventually moved to The King George, The Wheatsheaf and then the Civic Hall.

Hope that helps
