The current situation with the Coronavirus has necessitated that, for the foreseeable future, it is sensible that Tyne Folk Thursday nights are canned until the Government lifts restrictions on gatherings in pubs, restaurants, theatres etc.
It seems that a lot of clubs are following a similar course of action particularly to safeguard the more vulnerable amongst us.
Rest assured as soon as possible we will endeavour to re-book guests on the recommencement of activities.
Sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings but the virus is bigger than we thought!
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.
