Presenting live acoustic music in Twickenham most Sundays, usually at Patchworks, The Cabbage Patch pub, at 8pm (doors open 7.45pm)
Coronavirus Update from TwickFolk’ – 18th September 2020
TwickFolk events at The Cabbage Patch remain suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The safety of our guests, audience members, volunteers and pub staff has to be our priority. The committee is in contact with the Cabbage Patch to agree when it is safe for us to resume singarounds and concerts. We will reschedule postponed guest bookings at the earliest opportunity where possible, once things have improved.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly. However at a time when convening socially in pubs and clubs is being discouraged, we feel we have a collective responsibility to adhere to recommendations given. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated at a difficult time for everybody.
We send all of our friends, supporters, artists, and all the staff at the Cabbage Patch our very best wishes for continued good health and the strength to sustain this disruption. Moreover self-employed independent artists will inevitably be struggling financially while unable to perform publicly so we’d encourage you to consider purchasing some music through their websites and partaking in any online music activities they may be planning.
In the meantime please join us on Facebook for our Sunday evening song sessions. Look out for our email newsletters, check our website, Facebook, and Twitter for updates, and we look forward to welcoming you back at such time as we get the go-ahead that it’s safe to reopen.
Coming up at TwickFolk:
We’re going to try to keep TwickFolk going ‘online’ again on Sunday during our usual opening hours in the TwickFolk Friends group.
There won’t be an MC hosting or a set order of spots. Just check first that someone else isn’t already playing….if not jump on ‘stage’ and do one or two songs!
If you’ve not used Facebook Live before, it works best from the Facebook app on your smartphone or tablet. Most web browsers on computers don’t allow the ‘Go Live’ option (Firefox does work) and the sound and pictures tend to be better using a phone.
Check your phone camera to see if it has a ‘mirror’ setting you can turn off, otherwise like many of our contributors, you’ll find yourself playing wrong-handed.… Continue reading. →
