FCB 92 What a corker of an evening!

Too bloody true Barry!

What an amazing evening Folk Club Bonn # 92 turned out to be.

Special Guests of the evening Fil Campbell and Tom McFarland had their work cut out weaving their way through brass marching bands and string quartets, but their inimitable haunting dulcet melodies from the emerald isle of Erin certainly shone through.

Thankfully John Hurd of 3SongsBonn was on hand to do another of the most difficult jobs of this evening to describe in mere words and images musical magic which can sometimes be Folk Club Bonn. One of the FCB organisers even described it as the FCB's best night ever

Thanks to John Hurd's report, hot off the press, you can decide for yourselves if you were unfortunate to miss it:

Thanks again John for putting this particular Genie in a bottle!

FCB Louisiana Friday Night


Oh What A Night!

What a brilliant gift to help me forget about my age...
I can't think of anyone that was at the Folk Club Friday that I shouldn't thank for making the evening a success: FCB organizers, musicians, audience, Dotty's crew!
I was very, very pleased and hope ya'll had as much fun as I did...

Dotty's Sportsbar und Restaurant (ehemals Sträters) liegt ungefähr auf halbem Weg zwischen Bonn und Bad Godesberg und ist mit dem Fahrrad in einer Viertelstunde aus beiden Richtungen erreichbar. Mit dem Auto dauert es 5 Minuten. Es gibt viele Parkplätze.  Von der Stadtbahnhaltestelle Ollenhauerstr (Linien 16, 63 und 66) sind es ca. 8 Minuten zu Fuß. Dottys/Sträters ist Teil eines Sportareals mit Tennis- und Hockeyplätzen und liegt in einer Nebenstraße der Dottendorfer Strasse, westlich der Eisenbahnlinie gegenüber dem Base Camp und der Bäckerei Lubig. Die Bar befindet sich in der ersten Etage.​ Leider ist es nicht barrierefrei und so nicht direkt für Rollstuhlfahrer zugänglich, aber wenn Sie im Voraus anrufen, tragen wir liebend gerne Rollstühle samt Fahrern bis in die erste Etage. Wie denken Sie, ist das Klavier da dort oben angelangt?

Folk Club Bonn # 92 on the horizon

https://3songsbonn.com/2018/05/31/folk-club-92-on-friday/

A unique show in store, for you all, even by our somewhat crazy nutty international standards.

Come along and experience the best live music from the cool breezy scenic tip of northern Ireland way down to the hot sultry swinging humid South of the USA.

Fil Campbell & Tom McFarland are gracing our stage once again and this time promoting their new CD simply entitled "Together". A wonderful thought in a world seemingly drifting ever more apart. The entrance is free, but be warned, there may well be spot checks on the exit door and anyone found leaving without this CD on their personage is likely to be severely admonished.

The ability to read one's audience well allows one the privilege of jesting.

As far as the instrumental line up for the evening is concerned, I jest not!
There will certainly be guitars galore, even fiddles galore and maybe even violins and violas and cellos. You may spy a banjo and probably in the horn section saxes, trumpets, trombones, tubas and a variety of drums and a bodhran. A resonator guitar and a piano both, very recently, tuned "Louisiana Style", Blues harps bent, bis es geht micht mehr, and vibrant voices from well, almost everywhere.

So do come along and be prepared to sing if you wish to. If your voices are not well oiled enough then dear Dotty, your host will have plenty of what the Danes refer to as øl to wet your whistles for singing and to whet your appetites for both the available tasty cuisine and the diverse musical dishes on offer.

The music kicks off punctually at 19:00 hrs so do come early if you wish to be seated, although thinking about it, you probably won't be seated for all of the evening, foot-tapping often leads to uprisings later on.
