A Folk Filled July!

The 'Where Have All The Folk Songs Gone?' gang took a fun road trip out to Niagara On The Lake on July 8th, where we were invited to kick off Music Niagara's 'Sunday In The Park' Music Series. We performed in the bandshell at Simcoe Park to a few hundred people who came out to enjoy the weather-perfect day. Like last year, Meridian, one of the series' sponsors distributed plastic 'hand clappers' so it sounded like an audience of thousands!

Last night we had a good crowd of singalongers join us for our monthly show at the Free Times Café. There were a lot of first timers in the audience. After the show, one gentleman told me "I didn't know what to expect...but I loved it!" 
Here are some other lovely comments...

We introduced a new-old song that has received many requests at our shows over time called 'Morningtown Ride', written by Malvena Reynolds. Instead of ending the evening with our usual 'Go Tell It On The Mountain' reprise, we sang this lovely lullaby that was a big hit for The Seekers, to send the audience off on their way.

Here is the set list for the evening...

Our next show is at the Free Time Café on Wednesday, August 15th. Hope to see you there!
