June at Barnsley Folk and Acoustic Night

Here is what is going on at the Folk Club in June;

Mon 1st June is a normal club night (and 15th and 22nd)  – if you’ve not been before, we start with a trad music session from 8 to 9ish – everyone welcome to join in – especially beginners – if you’re struggling with a tune at home bring it along and see how you get on.  From 9 pm it’s open floor for Singers and Musicians.  Come to just one of the sessions, or both, its up to you, but if you’re coming to the music session and don’t want to play, please respect the musicians and don’t talk loudly.

Mon 8th we have The Coles from Sheffield as our featured artists – the format of the evening will run as above, but with a 30min + set from the Coles sometime after 9.30ish.

Sat 20th June is Live in Barnsley – we are co-organising the Folk and Acoustic Stage at Igloo (above Chambers).  The sets are 30 mins long and alternate with the sets downstairs in Chambers so there will be constant music all day – there will also be a special festival beer too – a collaboration between Acorn, Two Rose and Geeves Breweries!
Running times are:

12.30 – Avishek Choudury
1:30 – Casey Hall
2.30 – Paul Pearson and Chris Treebeard
3.30 – Zoe Bottomley
4.30 – Toby Burton
5.30- Kirsty White
6.30 – The Rolling Down Hills
7.30 – Richard Kitson
8.30 – String Theory
Videos of all artists can be found on the facebook page of the event-  https://www.facebook.com/events/1402549276733719/

Alan from the monday night music sessions is also running an unofficial fringe event at the old no 7 – https://www.facebook.com/events/952546391452775/ from 2pm “A SESSION OF TUNES AND SONGS Every one welcome to come along and join in the tunes, sing a song or just listen.”

Mon 29th is Winter Wilson (see below for details) and further ahead into July on the 6th a real treat with Dave Burland and his new band (so new they still don’t have a name).

See you soon,

Sarah
