WHAT'S ON AT MFC

 

We have a normal singers' night EVERY THURSDAY from 8.15 (unless otherwise advised, here and on our Facebook page)

 

October 12: JOHN DENVER CELEBRATION

 

It will be 20 years to the day on October 12 that JD left us so suddenly. If you sing or play any of his material, or love to listen to it, this is the night for you. If you don't play JD, maybe sing or play something about the stuff he cared about - the mountains, the wilderness, the American West, homeliness and aloneness. If in doubt, just come and listen! Please contact Chris (see contacts page) to book your song/s - we don't want six different versions of Annie's Song (do we?) As always, the theme is optional - all music welcome, but preference will be given to JD stuff.

 

November 30: MAINLY SCOTTISH NIGHT (St Andrew's Day)

Sing or play something from north of the border - there's plenty of choice. Tartan, kilts, tam o'shanters, sporrans etc welcome.

 

December 21: CHRISTMAS NIGHT

Our seasonal celebration. Sing or play whatever you like, but festive material favoured. There may be mince pies (not compulsory).

 

The club will NOT OPEN on December 28 - next

meeting January 4.
