A stage for the performance and appreciation of live folk music

  • Listen: Simply take your seat and enjoy the music and song from experienced musicians - as well as those taking their first steps in live public performance.
  • Develop: Testing new skills and songs in front of a live audience can provide invaluable feedback on your progress and also help increase confidence from a performance well-delivered.
  • Inspire: Encourage others in the audience to continue with their efforts and inspire them to greater heights
  • Learn: whilst modern folk music has its own story, the traditions and tales of the past are relived in the songs from the past.

      The Pleasure of Performance

      As we practice the notes repeatedly,  gradually and instinctively, we feel the music in our fingers - just as we hear it in our heads. It is a process that we mostly conduct for ourselves in a quest to master the instrument as best we can. We seek to find a place where the composer intended us to arrive.  And this place can be shared with others as they too journey on the highway of musical achievement. And in music, there is room for the individual as well as the group.  Practice brings growth, and pleasure from the resulting accomplishment.  Yet, there is an even greater pleasure in having the success validated by the applause of an audience.
