The Folk Club for the “second homeless” on the May 24 long-weekend was extremely well attended. Thanks to all who turned out for the show and all who helped set-up, run the production take it all down and take it home at the end of the show.
Jakki Annerino’s six song set started with a solo with self accompanied dulcimer of a traditional “Shady Grove” followed by four of her original songs and closing off with a Keb Mo cover. Her usual band accompanied on acoustic and electric guitars. We put up a photo on the “performers’ pictures” page (Thanks Franki).
Next month the plan is to go back to the all open stage format. We found that even though Jakki’s songs were short and she finished 6 or 7 minutes early, we could not give everybody who signed up time to play two songs. Some people who arrived before 8 pm found that the open stage was full and did not get to play at all.
The 17 Open Stage performers (Random order) were: Jay Collins, Jay Linden, Dave Maranta, Dan Hergott, Randy Ouillette, Geoff Lewis, Lynn Kirby, Tom Massiah, Jay Moore, Dan Kearney, Terry Golletz, Jack Guest, Ted Shapiro – NEW, Nathan Few, Scott Abrams, Adam Lang (almost 12 years old!) – NEW, Wayne Cheater (With Jim Galway, Terry Golletz & Dave Maranta)
