5th March featuring Alex & Tommy MacDonald plus floor spots

Hi all,

Unfortunately, Tom McConville has had to cancel his appearance at Tooting Folk on 5th March.

As such, dragged kicking and screaming at short notice, Alex and his brother Tommy are going to step in as the featured slot for this month!

Alex and Tommy have, for almost two decades, performed a wide variety of music – blues, jazz, country, ragtime, bluegrass, as well as traditional music from Scotland, Ireland, Spain, America, Turkey, Jamaica, England, Trinidad and god knows where else.

In the last few years they have grudgingly managed to put aside their mutual suspicion and play as a duo! On guitar, banjo, saz, accordian, tin whistle and anything else they can carry, they plunge into hundreds of years of musical history from around the world to keep the old traditions alive.

Hope you can all still come!

As always, there will be floor spots for those who want to sing a song, perform a tune or play the spoons.

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 £5 on the door (cash only – no pre-booking, sorry!)

Upstairs at the Gorringe Park, 29 London Road, Tooting, SW17 9JR
See y’all there!

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

Hi all!

Brace yourself, this Friday 31st July we will indeed be hosting another Zoom singaround.

When prompted, type this password: 806693

Meeting ID: 845 5489 7356

You’ll be placed in a ‘meeting room’ and then I’ll accept your entry to the Zoom meeting.

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.
