Do you feel the need to jump on the nearest soap-box? Box-clever by letting your creative juices run riot? Perhaps you already play a box-shaped instrument, sing songs by Boxcar Willie, or would like to show off those novelty boxer shorts you got for a christmas box? (Steady though – we don’t want to start a rebellion!) Or maybe you like to watch the Springboks play rugby? Think outside the box and bring along your ever-so-tenuous connection with boxes, be it musical, theatrical or virtual, to our ‘boxing night‘ themed song and tune session on Friday 31 January.
To add to the boxing mix, special guest and talented box-player Owen Woods will contribute a couple of showcase spots. Owen is a dynamic young melodeon player from Cambridge, who is increasingly sought after for folk clubs and festivals. As well as performing solo, he is also an experienced ceilidh musician. Owen has developed a personal style of performance, marrying tunes from different cultures and different periods. Prepare for strange time signatures, fluctuating rhythms and lush harmonies.
Free entry. Bring your own drinks. Teas and coffee available in the kitchen.
Norwich Folk Club Annual General Meeting will take place from 8 pm on Friday 21 February, followed at around 9 pm by a folk song session.
