Fall Finale of WTF: What the Folk!

Hello gang,

On Friday, November 17th... WTF invites you to our...

FALL FINALE !!!

... not the best of f words with FALL proclaiming the coming of brrrrr! winter and with it... the potential for falling which isn't any fun for ageing hips... and FINALsignifying the end of something and in this case... the end of something special which was our relationship with Spencer House but in this case... we are hoping to turn the evening into a celebration.


Bertha and her staff & volunteers have made us feel most welcome and given us a fabulous musical home for almost 3 years! We will miss their warmth and wonderful treats as we move on to a new chapter in the life of WTF! More on that to come.


But for now... as we bid a fond farewell to Spencer House and wish them well in their new endeavours... we invite performers to bring what you feel best represents your legacy during these past 3 years here... what you feel the audience most appreciates from your musical or storytelling toolbox.


As always... we encourage folks interested in acoustic music to come and listen. You will be guaranteed laughter... and not necessarily due to the quality of the musicianship :)
