Folk and Singing Session
A carol from the 15th Century and a song about the recent G20, a medieval Mummers Play dressed in 21st Century trappings and the timeless sounds of a lively Celtic band. Throw in some seasonal fodder and some ‘do-it-yourself’ music making, and it’s all happening at the Gaelic Club on Friday, 5th December, from 8.15 pm. And what a great start to the silly season!
The Folk Federation of NSW is combining with the December Gaelic Café singing session to produce an End-of-Year Folk Bash which draws on ancient and modern elements of folk culture.
All welcome. Please notify your friends on facebook/wherever and make it a party. The Folk Federation will be providing some Xmas goodies to eat, also tea and coffee. Reasonably priced drinks are available at the bar.
Admission: $10; Folk Fed members $5
