— Folk In Mandurah (generally 3rd Sunday Bi-Monthly TBC)
We are running the Soirée every second month, and attempting to make it the Third Sunday of the month concerned. The basis is mainly folk, but we have also had a classical pianist, and because of connections with similar organisations, we have been able to have folk performers from a number of countries perform on a regular basis. The concept is still basically the same as Ian and Tania started with, that is good performers using a private house to mutually enjoy music.
There is no door charge, or membership fee, most of the new performers are recommended by current acts, and are invited to come along.
Being a private house, we are limited to about 20 to 25 people, some of whom stay on after the formal programme for what has become a regular event – the evening sing along, jam session, and general discussion on instrument techniques, new songs etc.
