Take these broken wings and learn to fly…
All your life…
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.”
* John Lennon & Paul McCartney

and cover the earth with the songs you sing…
The miles fly by.”
* Sr. Miriam Therese Winter

Out of the pouring rain…
Weave me the hope of a new tomorrow…
And fill my cup again.“

“Sit by my side, come as close as the air…
Share in my memories of grey…
Wander in my world, dream about the pictures
That I play of

CHANGES…”

And there are lots of changes at What The Folk!
Tonight’s theme reflects them.
We’ve moved downstairs into the brand new performance space.
There’s a proper stage, matching tables and chairs… a real coffee house!
Phil Ochs would be proud of our changes.

“Movements of magic will glow in the night…
One last cup of wine I will pour…
I’ll kiss you one more time & leave you on the rolling
River shore of

CHANGES…”
