Becks New Folk Club, Easingwold, N.Yorks UK (20) RE: New Folk Club, Easingwold, N.Yorks UK 06 Apr 09

Nick, there will be a singaround between our sets, Annie is keen to do floor spots as much as possible, but she is also keen to have guests!

We are aiming for 2 x 45 mins so I guess it will run something like this:

7:30 - Singaround
8:30 - Blind Summat
9:15 - 15 minute break
9:30 - Floor Spots & singaround
10:15 - Blind Summat
11:00 - Final singaround where we can all sing together!

Do people think that will work?
That gives 1 hour and 45 mins for floor spots and singarounds thats more than the band so should keep people happy, I hope. If people want to come up to me on the night and put there name down I shall make sure you get a spot (providing hundreds dont turn up to sing, lol).

As well as Annie from the New Inn I am new to this and in the absence of an organiser I am trying to help out but I am certainly no expert!

She originaly wanted just me on my own as the guest for the opening night and I advised her that she would be better either starting it with just a singaround/session for the first one to get people there or if she really wanted a guest getting a wider range of music and a fuller sound so I suggested either a duo or the band. Peole who have seen me know I am not the most traditional of performers and have quite a stark sound. Hence, Blind Summat the trio (no Paul on banjo unfortunately) where we will do a range of band and solo stuff to keep it interesting.

I am trying to keep everyone happy, obviously the opening night is a little different. There will be just singaround/session nights in the future and unless Annie books anyone I think the next one which will be 20th April will be a singaround. With a Blues night on the 13th.

We are doing it without a PA for the opening night as Annie is keen to keep it acoustic, will work for some but not for others. She is happy for PA's to be used also, I have a preference to acoustic where you can.
There is also a few option within the pub, if it is too noisy in the main bar there is a nice snug area which is quite large with plenty of seats that could host a singaround and get a few people in for a guest night.

Annie is looking to book other Acts in the future so come armed with cards, leaflets and info if you fancy a gig. She has Ric Bockner booked for the summer but as yet I think that is it.

Hope that helps anyone who was looking for more info.

Hope to see you there!
