4 September: Singaround: bring a song or two, join in, or just come and listen!

Tickets £3 on the door or £3 (+30p booking fee) if booked online

Sue_graves_completeSue Graves, one of the resident singers at TwickFolk, says: “All the music at TwickFolk is live and our singarounds give everyone a chance to sing, play an instrument, recite a poem or tell a story.

“If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.

“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old – and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”

Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.

Hall and Anderson met in New York City, where they had already been performing regularly – Hall as a jazz singer, and Anderson as a drummer for a variety of garage bands. Their introduction to folk music came later, when a close friend – who died young due to a tragic misdiagnosis – entrusted to them her collection of 1960s folk albums and her guitar (which has since been featured on all of their albums). Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Anderson’s flair for musical arrangement.
