Last session of the term this saturday (1st July) so don’t miss it! There’s an extended summer break to encourage participation in the region’s family folk gatherings – Rothbury, Bellingham, Newcastleton to mention a few – then back to Breakfast Folk business on 9th September.
We’re taking a break for the Easter holidays – there’ll be no BF 15th or 22nd April. We’re back again on the 29th. But still a chance to get your family folk fix tomorrow morning (8th April)!
Congratulations to Byron for playing his first tune at Breakfast Folk – Russian Girl (see SHEET MUSIC PAGE) was the highlight of this week’s session!
Following the roaring success of the ceilidh in March, the second Breakfast Folk Family Ceilidh takes place on Sunday 27th November 2-4 p.m. The venue is once again the church hall of St James and St Basil in Fenham and we are lucky to welcome back caller Joey Oliver and fiddle player Sophy Ball to lead the dances. This will be a great afternoon of music and dance for all ages so please come and join us. See the Family Ceilidhs section for further details.
YEAH! We had a brilliant time dancing and making music at the first family folk ceilidh – we stopped counting at 100 people, it was a brilliant venue and we can’t wait to do it again. Check here for news about the next one – we were thinking three a year might be a good start. More info about family ceilidhs on the Family Ceilidhs Page
