FOLK CLUB BONN # 128 Friday 07.10.22

 Dear folk club friends,

next Friday, October 7th, there will be another folk club evening. This time we can welcome as a special guest Juhana Iivonen (surname starting with 2 i) from Finland. Juhana's previously planned appearance had to be postponed several times due to the corona restrictions. Now the time has come that we can hear him again after 2018 with his thoughtful and calm songs.

Other musicians have also announced themselves for Friday, including the duo 2Sunny (vocals and guitar), Ry(land) Burhans (US old-time fiddle) as well as Marina Eckhart and Alex Bartunek from Vienna (vocals and guitar) accompanied by Eva Henneken ( violin) from Bonn. It will certainly be another exciting and varied evening.

Below are the most important dates:

Date: Friday October 07, 2022

Start: 7:00 p.m. to probably 10:00 p.m.

Location: Dotty's Sports Bar and Restaurant (public clubhouse of the Bonn Tennis and Hockey Club - BTHV), Christian-Miesen-Straße, 53129 Bonn (Dottendorf)

Covid 19: There are no restrictions, but of course everyone is free to wear a mask. We will ensure that there is plenty of ventilation in the hall throughout the evening.

Furthermore, the “most important thing”: as always, admission is free

If necessary, you will receive further information

Liebe Folk-Club-Freunde,

am kommenden Freitag, den 07. Oktober gibt es wieder einen Folk-Club-Abend. Diesmal dürfen wir als besonderen Gast Juhana Iivonen (Nachname mit 2 i am Anfang) aus Finnland begrüßen. Juhanas schon früher geplanter Auftritt musste wegen der Corona-Beschränkungen mehrmals verschoben werden. Jetzt ist es so weit, dass wir ihn mit seinen nachdenklichen und ruhigen Liedern nach 2018 wieder hören dürfen.

Für Freitag haben sich darüber hinaus weitere Musiker angesagt, darunter das Duo 2Sunny (Gesang und Gitarre), Ry(land) Burhans (US old-time fiddle) sowie Marina Eckhart und Alex Bartunek aus Wien (Gesang und Gitarre) begleitet von Eva Henneken (Geige) aus Bonn. Es wird sicher wieder ein spannender und vielseitiger Abend.

Nachfolgend die wichtigsten Daten:

Datum: 07. Oktober 2022

Beginn: 19.00 Uhr bis voraussichtlich 22.00 Uhr.

Ort: Dotty’s Sports Bar und Restaurant (Öffentliches Vereinshaus des Bonner Tennis- und Hockey-Vereins – BTHV), Christian-Miesen-Straße, 53129 Bonn (Dottendorf)

Covid 19: Es gibt keine Restriktionen, aber es ist natürlich jedem anheimgestellt, eine Maske zu tragen. Wir werden den gesamten Abend über für reichlich Lüftung im Saal sorgen.

Ferner das „Allerwichtigste“: wie immer Eintritt frei

There's a complentary entrance ticket to the next folk club for the best suggestion as to what Barry is describing below:
