Rising numbers of Coronavirus, particularly in this area of Tyneside, is still of concern, so to keep safe and protect each other tynefolk members have recently agreed that meeting up face to face should be kept under review.
As soon as everyone feels comfortable, and safe, tynefolk will again meet at the Black Bull on Thursday nights at 8.30pm and we will advise as soon as a date is agreed.
You will then be very welcome to join singers and musicians for an evening of folk, both traditional and contemporary, or just come to listen.
Guest nights are approximately monthly. We will post details as soon as we begin to book guests in future.
See all the Tynefolk Lockdown Songs here.
tynefolk turned to Zoom during lockdown over the past year, in order to keep the folk club active.
The regulars were able to carry on singing in each others’ company, maintain contact with conversation, much light hearted banter and laughter.
But what has turned out has been much more.
Lively discussion of the songs became a feature with the singers explaining why they chose the song and providing some background history.
A year later we are still zooming.
We thought this an appropriate time to record some of the songs that were important to Tynefolk singers during this period.
Each Thursday at 8:30PM, come and join singers and musicians for an evening of folk, both traditional and contemporary. Audiences are also welcome. Guest nights are approximately monthly. Please see our guest list for details.
Ronnie sits with his daughter Janice in the Black Bull Beer Garden with friends and family.
And he sends a message of good wishes to all the singers at tynefolk.
"I can’t get the hang this Zoom stuff. I don’t even have the internet. But you can play any recording you like."And so here is Ronnie’s recorded message on May 5th from the Beer Garden at the Black Bull.
