The Blues Angels at folk club
The Troubadour folk club will feature rootsy blues band The Blues Angels at its next meeting on Saturday, February 26, from 7pm at the CWA Hall in Woy Woy.
The trio of Cec Bucello, Tom Flood and Frank Russell will perform with a lineup of banjo, double bass, guitar, mandolin and harmonica.
"The Blues Angels will swing you with a hoedown, lonesome back hills harmonies, rip-roaring bluegrass and foot-stomping blues, gentle love ballads, miserable late night blues, swinging folk, and general acoustics," said club president Ms Marilyn Russell.
Troubadour aimed to preserve the traditions of heritage music and poetry and encouraged participation by everyone and to provide a place for beginning and advanced artists to get involved and support local artists, she said.
The group generally meets on the fourth Saturday of the month.
It also offers jam sessions, blackboard concerts and sessions, group camping trips and a collection of frequent activities including performances at nursing homes, fetes and other community events.
Members and the general public are encouraged to bring along their own instruments and singing voices to contribute to concerts.
Local artists are also often invited to teach workshops to members and friends of Troubadour and are used to encourage both beginners and professionals.
Floor spots will be available and supper is provided at the February concert.
