A new season of folk offerings begins

These gatherings are where we ordinary folks entertain ourselves for the evening

Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville is beginning a 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 they support, Families for Children (www.familiesforchildren.ca). Through their musical events over the last two years we have raised more than $3000 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 and give us a song or two, or if you’d just like to join the audience, please get in touch for all the details at 250-337-5337.
