Our second WTF! evening takes place this Friday, April 10th at our fabulous new venue... Spencer House. We regret having to cancel March 27th due to weather threats that really didn't materialize; however, that just gave you two extra weeks to perfect your songs & stories of WISHFUL THINKING for this week :)
For those of you who haven't yet checked out the new space, Cindy took numerous candid shots of our first Spencer House evening and posted them to the Helen Creighton Folklore Society's Facebook page.
As you can see, the turnout was really great with lots of old and new musical friends but the star of the show was really Spencer House. It's roomy, comfy and oh so convivial! But don't just take my word for it...  you really should come out and see for yourself. Parking is available for free on site in the back, and on any neighbouring streets. No excuse :)
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 and 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 anytime 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.
