As the season turns and new shoots are appearing we’re feeling much more positive about the future. The vaccination programme continues apace and the government’s road map out of lock down is so far going to plan, so we have taken the plunge and decided to try for our socially distanced May concert.
Sadly the bands we had booked to play in April and May have postponed their tours. India Electric Co. will now play in April 2022. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get a date for Daphne’s Flight for May 2022 to work but we hope to book them in the future.
Wife and husband duo WILL FINN & ROSIE CALVERT will now play our first show at St Ambrose Church in Westbourne on THURSDAY 20 MAY 2021.
This show will be socially distanced and will comply with all covid regulations. You can rest assured we take everyone’s safety very seriously
MESSAGE FROM PAUL BURKE
Well, we have been out of action since March and, to be honest, I no longer have the drive and energy to start up again. I have been running the ‘folk club’ for over 20 years and it’s time for someone younger. Thanks to everyone for your support. We have had fabulous music, wonderful audiences and great venues (well, at least at Centre Stage and the Shelley Theatre). I have had a great time and so have most of my family.
You will be hearing shortly from Jo Elkington who will be running Bournemouth Folk Club in 2021. Please make sure you support Jo and her team. Running a folk club is enjoyable but it can be hard at times. Folk music rules, ok!
