Old and New at WTF!

Hi gang, We're nearing the end of April and that can mean only one thing... there's another scintillating WTF! evening ahead. Make sure you leave Friday, April 27th free for joining in the fun. Bring something OLD or something NEW because that's the theme this time. Perhaps you have an old favourite; maybe a favourite that's really old like a Child Ballad; or maybe you've written a great new song and want to share it with our legendary appreciative listening audience. Either way... we're here for you. Truth be told... we wouldn't be here without you :-) The music starts around 6:30pm and goes until a wee bit past 9:00pm. Mike suggests that if you are planning to partake of his culinary delights, you should consider coming early before the tables disappear to make room for us all. Then again... there's something charming about a room full of formerly sedate adults giggling hysterically while trying to delicately eat from bowls and plates precariously balanced on their laps. Do I hear "food fight" next :-) Xo Margo WTF! is a musical outreach program of the Helen Creighton Folklore Society. We meet every second and fourth Friday of the month at CHEBUCTO COFFEE, 6430 Chebucto Road, corner of Chebucto & Kline in Halifax. As always... admission is by free-will donations towards the Society's work.

Fortune and Misfortune at WTF!

Hi everyone,

Just when you thought you'd like to come out to sing & play with those
purveyors of lilting lunacy at What the Folk!... they go and pick a
date that is not for the faint of heart and then... to tempt Fate even
further... they choose to challenge with the theme: FORTUNE and/or
MISFORTUNE.

Of course this being the Titanic Commemorative week, the theme is
quite apt as there were many on board with fortunes of the monetary
kind; some considered themselves fortunate to be sailing on this
remarkable vessel; and a lot met with misfortune as did the ship.

Then again... Friday the 13th is perfectly misfortunate if you are
superstitious. But... don't let black cats, ladders and the like keep
you away. Whether you choose to sing, play or tell a tale... fear not.
You will be safe with us whether your preference is supernatural fun
OR super natural fun :-)
