1st May Tooting Folk Zoom singaround

Hi all!

Since the last event seemed to work well, we’re going to do another Zoom singaround for Tooting Folk on Friday 1st May! Come armed with a song to celebrate May Day/Beltane/International Workers Day!

If you want to join, just download Zoom (if you haven’t already) and then click the link below:

When prompted, type this password: 431935
Meeting ID: 857-4935-8824

You’ll be placed in a ‘meeting room’ and then I’ll accept your entry to the Zoom meeting. Zoom has upped its security recently due to various unsavoury people hijacking links!

We’ll be hosting the Zoom meeting from 7:30pm – send me a chat message in the application if you want to play/sing a song and I’ll sign you up. Music will kick off at 8pm, just like the normal events. We’ll finish sometime after 11pm.

Check that your microphone on your device doesn’t have “noise cancellation” enabled. If you have a decent microphone and/or camera, do use it!

Any questions, send a message on 07951163434.

Saturday 2nd November 2013 – ONE YEAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOOTING FOLK PARTY! Featuring Skiffle and The Piffles

Yes, we made it, in November we will have been running for one whole year!  It’s been a great year, and we are very lucky to have some fantastic regular floor spot performers who are a huge part of the night as well as lots of great guest acts.    To celebrate, we have the eight piece Skiffle and The Piffles as our guest act for the night, plus floor spots of course!

Skiffle piffle

Inspired by the rockabilly, folk and bluegrass of the 50s and 60s, 8 piece Skiffle and the Piffles formed in 2010.  Taking inspiration from the greats like the Carter Family and Wanda Jackson, they stir up a mix of girl group harmonies, stomping rhythms and finger pickin’riffs in their own unique style that is sure to have you singing along and dancing on tables.  Dusting off the washboard, accordion and box drum, expect a contemporary take on some old classics and many brand new tracks from their recent “Bones in the Ground” EP and beyond.


There will also be floor spots as usual, so come along and sing a song!  With or without an instrument, traditional or original.  Or read a poem.  Or do a dance.

Doors 7.30pm, music starts at 8pm. Come along at 7.30pm to put your name down for floor spots. Entry is £3, all the door money goes to the guest act.
