Thread Name: Is Hull Folk Club Rubbish?
Subject: RE: Is Hull Folk Club Rubbish?
Hull Folk Club celebrated its 1st Birthday last Thursday, it was a brilliant night, with over 20 singers and musicians there, everybody [including me!] did at least 1 song/tune, we drank loads of ale and ate some cake!
During the year we,ve been going, we have loads of top performers there, including Greg Stephens, Kate Barfield, Nahro Zagros, Rory McLeod, Jim Eldon, Henry ayrton, Bill Sables, Punch the Horse, Pat Cooksey, Linda Kelly, El Ted, David Oaklet, Cowfish, Martin the Whistler and loads of people like that, playing all sorts of folk type music including skiffle, traditional irish tunes, protest songs, ballads, Flamenco Tunes, Blues songs, Kurdish Fiddle Tunes etcetcetc.
I'd like to thank everybody that has suppported us, especially them that came from far away [Greg, Kate and Rory etc], and especially them that have made the efoort to turn up every week, [Ted, Mick and Les etc].
Over the last weekend about 20 of us travelled to Nick_'s place at Far Lington for the weekend, it was brilliant, a full weekend of folk music of all types,by people of all ages everyone was made really welcome, its a brilliant pub, really well run, good ale at good prices, and I'd reccomend a visit to anyone [see link to pub website in Nicks post].
