WTF! Frost and Fire With Bill Plaskett

WTF:What The Folk!
Friday, December 11 / 7pm
Unplugged Open Mic Format
Spencer House Community Centre
5596 Morris Street, Halifax
Cost: Free Will Donation

Hello gang,

Well... it was bound to happen. 2015 is drawing to a close and we have only one more WTF! session left before the New Year. We have tried to make this event super special for everyone... from those who love all things Christmas to those who would rather eat glass than hear another bloody carol :)

On Friday, December 11th... you are invited to bring your favourite song(s) and stories of the season... and then some. For your amazement and amusement ... WTF! is thrilled to welcome back...
GUEST HOST: BILL PLASKETT who has chosen the theme FROST &  FIRE!

Bill says: "With Christmas Drawing Nigh at Hand, it would be a good opportunity to take a cue from the Watersons  and do some songs of Frost and Fire. " We couldn't agree more.

Cindy and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our illustrious guest hosts this season who generously volunteered their time  and talents toward herding the cats; all of you who painstakingly adhered to the chosen themes with appropriate songs and stories and those beloved few who hardly ever followed the theme and graciously accepted our gentle teasing; those of you who never take the stage but always give rousingly thunderous support guaranteed to keep the music and stories coming week after week; and Bertha, Rick, Andrea and the other behind-the-scenes folks at Spencer House who have welcomed us with open arms and generous hearts.
WTF! would not be the success that it is without equal measures from all of you. May you have the merriest of Christmases and if Christmas isn't quite your thing... the happiest of Humbugs! We will see you all again in January.

WTF! is an artistic outreach program of the Helen Creighton Folklore Society. Now in its 6th year, WTF! is primarily an acoustic unplugged open-mike session for performers of all ages in the traditional & folk music vein... singers, instrumentalists and storytellers in particular.

Co-hosted by the ever-jovial Cindy Campbell-Stone & Margo Carruthers with occasional guest hosts, WTF! meets every second and fourth Friday of the month at SPENCER HOUSE, 5596 Morris Street in Halifax where sing-a-longs are known to spontaneously erupt and laughter is always a given.

Come any time after 6:30pm. Entertainment starts around 7:00 and goes until 9:00ish. As always... admission is by free-will donation towards the Society's work. All proceeds from the sale of baked goods and beverages from the Spencer House kitchen will go to help support the operation of Spencer House.

Parking is available on site behind the building after 6:00pm, and on all the neighbouring streets.
