Alton Community Centre, Amery St, ALTON, HANTS - GU34 1HN - Holybourne - United Kingdom
We are starting a new series at the bar with the help of some well-known local folk musicians.
There’s nothing like a friendly folk night to start your weekend and The Lounge Bar will be hosting its first singaround on Friday 15th May from 7.30pm to close.
RoughDitchFolk’s Pete Stephens and Barbara Parry will be running the sessions and you’re assured of a friendly welcome whether you’re coming along to take part or just to have a listen over a relaxing drink from the bar.
Some people will be familiar with the singaround format, but, if you’ve never been to a participatory folk night before, it’s really about sharing songs and tunes, poetry and folk tales, familiar or original, with the others who come along.
Folk music is a really diverse genre – did anyone hear the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards recently? Some would argue that, without folk music, there would be no country, rhythm and blues or rock and roll! It attracts and is enjoyed by all ages.
Whether you’re an instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, poet, storyteller or just a really good listener, why not join us on Friday 15th May and see what it’s all about?
The venue is:
The Lounge Bar
See you there!
