The Campfire was a good idea because it was a cold night last Saturday, July 11. There was a good turnout and lots of songs, chatter and good cheer at Jim and Irena’s place. Hey, it did not rain! The storm & lightning earlier that day did split the big fruit tree next to the fire pit, but Jim had that all cleared away before we arrived.
That’s all for the club until September 18th except: On Sunday August 2 at 5 PM to 6:45 PM, The Black Walnut Folk Club will host a sing-around as part of the Millrace Festival of Traditional Folk Music. You are invited to bring your acoustic instrument, your songs and yourself to join in the song-circle/jam session. Even if you aren’t prepared to lead a song or play/sing along, just come to listen, cheer and buy refreshments for the session leaders, Jakki and Wayne.
The sing-around takes place in the Galt room (Upstairs) at the 13 Main Street Grill (Cafe 13), in Cambridge. Admission is free and food / refreshments can be ordered from the fine establishment which is our host. The festival is probably the best folk festival in Southern Ontario this summer and it is free! It starts friday evening, July 31 and continues through to late Sunday evening at stages scattered through the compact downtown of the Galt part of Cambridge. check out their web page at www.millracefolksociety.com
