Fergus O'Byrne and the Folk Arts Society are gearing up for the 13th annual Young Folk at the Hall in St. John's. This workshop and performance opportunity exists to encourage young traditional musicians to share and develop their talents in a fun and informal setting.
Workshops take place January 11th and 18th, with a performance at the LSPU Hall on January 19th, 2014. The workshops will be free of charge, sponsored by the Folk Arts Society, and any proceeds from the concert will help produce the Neil Murray Stage at the annual Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival in August. Space is limited, so click HERE for more information and to register.
Tickets for the 2014 Young Folk at the Hall are now on sale at the LSPU Hall box office! If you know of any young folk musicians who may be interested in participating, please contact Fergus O Byrne at email@example.com with any questions.
The mandate of the Folk Arts Society is to "produce arts festivals for the purpose of education and advancing the public's understanding and appreciation of Newfoundland and Labrador folk arts and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related workshops; and to educate the public in folk arts through performances in public places and seminars".
Many thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors, musicians and the audience that made the 8th Annual Holiday Wassail a grand time indeed. Nothing could possibly say it better than this shot of host Dave Paddon backed up by the Quin-turr-sential Vocal Ensemble.
Many more pics are being shared shared on the event Wassail Facebook.
