CALENDAR OF EVENTS (updated January 31, 2013)
REGULARLY SCHEDULED EVENTS
Mill Race Folk Club: Third Saturday, 8pm
Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 121, 4 Veteran's Way, Cambridge
Bring your musical instruments, your tunes or just come to listen and participate in this open music club format. In 2008 the club moved from its long-time home in Hespeler, to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 121, 4 Veteran's Way, in the Galt section of Cambridge.
The sing-arounds are on the following Saturday nights (usually the third Saturday of the month) starting at 8 p.m. (Admission is $3, subject to change). (Map to venue.)
Beginning in 2013 the Folk Club will meet on the 3rd Saturdays of
the month only.
Informal gatherings of like minded musicians, playing together in a pub setting for fun! The repertoire consists of mainly - though not exclusively - English music, with a focus on tune playing. This is group playing, not a sing-around format. Hosted by Tethera on the second and fourth Sundays of each month (except for holidays) until June, from 3-5 pm. (Map to The Kiwi.)
The new venue, the Argyle Arms, beginning in 2013.
Traditional Singing Sessions: First Sunday, 3-5pm
The focus of these sessions are
primarily on traditional folk songs from the English speaking world,
particularly those with choruses so that others can join in. A
capella songs are encouraged, although not mandatory. Instrumental
tunes (jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, etc) will be played occasionally to
provide variety. (Map to
