Folk Of The Wood Live Music & Ceilidh Night
Folk Of The Wood is a new family friendly folk music and ceilidh event happening in West Norwood, south London, at The Portico Gallery, 23A Knights Hill, SE27 0HS, on the third Friday of the month.
There will be dancing led by Ceilidh Tree (www.ceilidhtree.co.uk) and caller Chris Faulkner, alongside visiting acts from folk, blues, country and beyond. Our guest act for October 18th is bluesman Simon Prager (www.simonprager.com) backed up on harmonica and guitar by Kevin Stenson.
We plan to host a session to close the events each month (starting around 9.30pm) and will be hopefully welcoming some of the stars of the London scene to spark this… - all performers will receive free entry and food / drink.
We will also be hosting an improvers group called The Green Ravens, led by local tutors. This is a mixed ages / abilities group of tune players specialising in well known Irish tunes. Before the gig there will be a workshop session, before a performance at the beginning of the gig each month. All are welcome to come along and join the troupe - our repertoire is mainly drawn from this wonderful website! e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
