‘What The Folk’ Theme Night

Following last times very successful C&W night, the theme for the next open mic night is ‘WTF – What The Folk’ a celebration of ‘folk music’. So we are looking for folk music in all its many forms, be it traditional British folk songs such as ‘Barbara Allen’, ‘She Moves Through The Fair’ or ‘Scarborough Fair’; or works from the folk revival by Bob Dylan, The Dubliners or Fairport Convention; or songs by more modern singers like Eliza Carthy, Sam Lee or The Unthanks. Go on surprise us!

The “WTF – What The Folk” open mic night will be held on Monday 21st. October in place of the normal club night.

As usual, songs can be performed individually or by groups and, depending on how many people sign up, you may be able to perform more than one song. You are also all welcome to help the performers out and sing along with the songs – just like at a folk club.

To register your chosen song send an email to g.e.harrison@blueyonder.co.uk or tell me on a club night and I’ll (in combination with Paddy) compile a list of songs/performers on the website. The Exmouth have asked us to ensure that there is NO Morris dancing and don’t forget that if you have your finger in your ear when you sing you won’t be able to play your ukulele…
