Tuesday 22th September
— Merriwa Acoustic Music Club (monthly, 4th Tuesday)
Merriwa Acoustic Music Club in person again and hopefully we will once more have a great turn-out. Social Distancing and hand-sanitisers and disinfectant wipes for tables and chairs are now just a part of normal life. Those will be employed. We will all work to keep each other safe.
But I am looking much forward to seeing everyone again without the use of an iPad, computer, or smart phone. There is something just so good about people sitting together and sharing songs or poems or stories. It will also be good to see our new venue at Jenolan Way Community Centre. It is bigger, has a kitchen, and perhaps will allow us to have even more options for our events. Anyway, I do indeed hope you can attend and start our new place and day off on the right chord.
The focus of this club is sharing acoustic music together, growing creatively, and later perhaps performing community service. Acoustic instrumentalists of all levels, ages, and styles (folk, bluegrass, acoustic rock, etc.) are surely welcome and encouraged. Poets, dancers, singers, story-tellers also welcome. Generally the format will be a sing-around the circle with everyone getting a chance to add a song or performance. Then learning a new song together.
