Folk music club gathing Saturday

The Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville will gather for its monthly evening of entertainment this Saturday.

The Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville will gather for its monthly evening of entertainment this Saturday.

The theme for the evening will be Hard Times.

While we may hear about tragedies, poverty, broken hearts, the Depression, and various other sorts of hard times, it won’t all be doom and gloom, and we can assure you that several of our performers are taking a much more light-hearted look at the subject.

There are many forms and degrees of hard times, all the way from a bad hair day to the sinking of the Titanic. But our folk club gatherings always involve a lot of humour, whatever the theme.

To add some further spark to the evening, we’ll have a Most Miserable Song Contest, with nominations and voting at the end of the evening, and the prize of a rhubarb/ginger cake for the winner. We’ll make up for it all at the following folk club March 30, when the theme will be Good Times.

Performers and all acoustic instruments are welcome, so if you’d like to treat us to a couple of songs, please give us a ring at 250-337-5337 for all the details and to get a spot on the performers’ list.

Audience members are also very welcome, the more the merrier, so please ring for details. Admission is free, or by voluntary donation to the Ursula Joy Trust Fund.
