GUEST,Hille Lee Collinson - great!! (9) RE: Lee Collinson - great!! 06 Sep 01

Hi, Mooman.

Oooh, a word in Lee's ear would be great (remind him I gave him a free entry flyer).

The club is going great. We started in April and average 50-70 audience every month. We have an wide range of acoustic musicians and styles show-cased: Acappella to yodelling in fact. The thing people always remark on is the good atmosphere - we have very responsive audiences. The other good things is that musicians are joining up and doing side projects together. Which is what I always wanted - there hasn't been a "folk" clubfor 25 years in Worthing or any thing like that for musicians to get together at.

We produce a newsletter - which I'd be happy to send you, I also try and list as much of what else is going on in the music scene and generally promote the other clubs and any gigs "our" musicians are playing.

We seem to be gaining a reputation - in fact I've had a journalist on the phone today from a national publication.

The thing we'd like to get more of is some money to pay people with! - only breaking even at the moment - so, tonight that popular event the RAFFLE is being introduced. (It's downhill all the way now then :)

Regards, Hille
