New folk sessions Saturday

All levels, styles and genres of acoustic music are welcome, as well as any instruments you can fit through the door

Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville is beginning its new season of monthly folk music sessions this Saturday.

These gatherings are where we ordinary folks entertain ourselves for the evening, with musical offerings loosely around a particular theme.

As it will be Thanksgiving weekend, our theme will be harvest, which will be stretched to include anything to do with John Barleycorn, bringing in the sheaves, autumnal weather, harvest moons, turkeys or pumpkins, appreciating what we have, etc.

All levels, styles and genres of acoustic music are welcome, as well as any instruments you can fit through the door.

Admission is by donation to the charity the club helps to support, Families for Children (www.familiesforchildren.ca). Through the club’s musical events over the past two years it has raised more than $3,000 for this charity, thanks to the amazing generosity of folk music fans.

The monthly folk clubs last year were really fun and entertaining evenings, so if you’d like to come with a song or two, or if you’d just like to join the audience, get in touch for all the details at 250-337-5337.
