Hi all!

Oh yes people, Saturday 5th December we will be hosting our Christmas Zoom singaround!

Come armed with mulled wine and – if you fancy – a Christmas song or two.

Trying to avoid gatecrashers – a problem we’ve had a couple times now – so if I don’t know you or someone else can’t vouch for you I might send a message to you before accepting you just to check.

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 you have “use Original Sound” activated on Zoom. If you have a decent microphone and/or camera, do use it!

Any questions, send a message on 07951163434.

7th November Tooting Folk Zoom singaround

Hi all,

Sorry guys, I know it’s been a while since we’ve had a Tooting Folk session, for a variety of reasons. I had hoped to be working on setting up some live gigs again but, alas, it was not to be.

So, since we’re going back into lockdown I thought I’d restart the sessions on a monthly basis on the first Saturday of the month, like the live gigs used to be.

The set-up is the same as before – if you want to join, just download Zoom (if you haven’t already) and then click the link below:

1st February featuring Bird in the Belly plus floorspots

1200px-Bitb

Greetings all,

February is upon us, dry January is over (if it ever started!) and we’ve got another great act at the Gorringe Park for Tooting Folk.

Bird in the Belly is a Brighton-based group composed of folk-duo Hickory Signals (Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti), alt-folk singer-songwriter Ben Webb (Jinnwoo, Green Ribbons), and multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom Pryor.

They create what have been described as “hypnotically original compositions” based on little known and forgotten lyrics, poems and stories from around the UK.

As always there will also be floor spots! Those who want to perform should come along at 7:30pm to put your name on the list.

Doors 7:30pm. Music starts at 8pm. Entry £6.

Upstairs at the Gorringe Park, 29 London Road, Tooting, SW17 9JR

See y’all there!

Any queries, call/message 07375481959 (Sarah) or 07951163434 (Alex)
