SpringSong & FolkFolly Kick Off Musical Season

Spring is officially on it’s way thanks to the SpringSong and FolkFolly headed to Fleetwood this March and April.

As a very early warm up to the Fleetwood Folk and Blues Festival  (1 – 3 September 2017), organisers are staging three events over two days – 31 March to 1 April 2017at the festival’s main Fleetwood Bowling Club venue. This is an early year musical feast for acoustic music fans.

First up is the SpringSong Concert on Friday evening headlined by Reg Meuross, outstanding singer songwriter, launching his new album and hosted by Plant & Taylor, fresh from recording their new album, Geronimo’s Cadillac. Doors open at 7.30pm, £10 in advance, £12 on the door.

Saturday afternoon brings Fleetwood Folk and Blues’ most recent venture, the Fleetwood Acoustic Room to the fore. This provides various artists with the opportunity to perform and showcase.  Plant and Taylor host once more. Entry by donation, doors open at 12noon.

The FolkFolly Concert, named for April Fools’ Day, features Cartoon Food and Hadrian’s Union, both confirmed for Folk and Blues Weekend 2018. Then the event will conclude with the host town’s name sake, Fleetwood Cave. Doors open at 7.30pm, £10 in advance, £12 on the door.

If you want to catch some new and some more experienced sounds and right on the Fylde’s doorstep, then it’s the tramline to Fleetwood for these worthy events.

Event tickets are available at the monthly Fleetwood Acoustic Room, the first Tuesday of every month from 8pm in the North Euston Hotel or email [email protected] or call 07979 932779 / 01253 873964.

    I have worked in the housing and transport professions for several local authorities, specialising in policy, strategy preparation and bid writing. Having always had an interest in film, the visual arts in general, theatre, music and lterature, I thought it would be good to combine the writing experience with these interests to contribute to altBlackpool. In addition to writing, my hobbies include watercolour and pastel painting, photography, woodwork, cycling and vegetable gardening.
