GUEST,AMC Folklore: New Zealand folk (36) RE: Folklore: New Zealand folk 04 Jan 06

Re. your query about folk music in Plimmerton-Kapiti- Wellington area.
Levin Folk Club is only a short drive north of Kapiti.
We meet on the second Friday of each month, at 7:30pm.
Our audience varies between 50-90 people .
The address is: Horowhenua Scottish Society Hall, corner of Bartholomew Road and Middlesex Street, Levin.
Our club format is to have an open blackboard concert for the first half, (visitors - sign up to perform with the door reception -initially 2 songs for each blackboard performer, later reduced to one song to get through before supper time). We have a very good sound system and sound technician. Blackboard followed by free supper, then a guest performance .
Guests for our first meeting of 2006 - Feb 13th- are a group called Jade, from Wellington/Kapiti area. Jade are Dave Chadwick, Mike Dew, Peter Conway. They play mainly trad Irish and English folk - the line-up is acoustic guitars, mandolin and bouzouki and occasionally other bits and pieces with all members of the group doing vocals.
The Levin Folk Club also have a small practice session/workshop, very informal, in a member's home, on the fourth Friday of each month. Ask for details at the club night, if interested.
