We may not be at the Joiners but the virus won’t stop the music.
OK gang: this is the place for you to post links to videos on YouTube for example, either performances you’ve enjoyed or your own performances. You can post links to SoundCloud if you use that. John B will be posting a regular folk dance tune for you to play along to. Quite happy for you to post general chit-chat too.
I’ve given myself the job of moderating this; so please email links and enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Cheers, John P.
I’ve moved the guidance on how to prepare and send your contributions to a new page as this one was getting a bit crowded. Virtual Folk Club – Help
Do please leave comments – they are at the bottom. In a virtual Folk Club performers can’t hear your applause! Comments are moderated so don’t expect to see them straight away. You have to leave your name and email, your email will not be published – I’ll see it (but I probably know it anyway).
From 30th March new material will go on Virtual Folk Club Page 2 comments will stay on this page
