Coming-up in the Folk World (West Sussex & South-east Hants division)

A selective (i.e. biased) view of forthcoming events - in reverse order!

June 6th Woolston & Bursledon Folk Club: PETE COE "One-man folk festival. Integrity personified. Miss him and regret" - Ken Hobbs
--------------------------------------------------------------
Saturday 29th May: Janet Douglas is organising a folk day. She writes:
"Hi, I am organising the music and dance side of the Chichester Mayfest run by the Rotary Club (for charity). We want dancers, musicians or singers and mummers. Are you or your members able to come along and help? At the moment we have recorded music - but how marvellous if we could manage some live music.
One of the 'happenings' I am trying to orchestrate is a folk music jam. If everybody who has an instrument can bring it along, hopefully they will join others to make music (somewhere near the beer tent)."

Thanks for that lot, Ken.
I take no offence that you have repeated the Mayfest publicity.
Yes, we do seem to have permission to publish Janet & John's email address.
Will Terry Wogan be there?
