WTF: What the Folk! Unplugged open mic : Historical January restart

Welcome  to 2018!

I know that you have all been going half mad with a curious mix of wonder and worry as to whether or not What The Folk! is ever coming back. Well... worry no more but hang on to the wonder because...


WTF! will be returning in a glorious new venue... the historic George Wright House [aka the Local Women's Council House] located on the corner of Inglis Street and Young Avenue in the south end of Halifax.


Because this is a setting with a history... we are going with the theme of...

H I S T O R Y 

...historical songs and stories, and if not exactly historical, then songs and stories with a real story behind them. I have asked Pat Dickson to open the evening with her compelling story about businessman and philanthropist George Wright, the man for whom the house is named. 

As for the rest of you... you're on your own but remember please... I said

historical, not hysterical
however...

 this is WTF! so I wouldn't rule it out :)

WTF! is an artistic outreach program of the Helen Creighton Folklore Society. 
Now in its 9th year, WTF!
 is primarily an acoustic unplugged open-mic session for performers of all ages in the traditional & folk music vein... singers, instrumentalists and storytellers in particular.

Co-hosted by the convivial team of Cindy Campbell-Stone & Margo Carruthers with occasional guest hosts, WTF!
 
meets every second and fourth Friday of the month at the historic George Wright House [aka the Local Women's Council House] located on the corner of Inglis Street and Young Avenue in the south end of Halifax where sing-a-longs are known to spontaneously erupt and laughter is a given. 


Come anytime after 6:30pm. Entertainment starts at 7:00
 and goes until 9:00. As always... admission is by free-will donation 
towards the Society's work. There will be beverages and treats for sale as well.

ENTRANCE 
 989 Young Avenue through the Ramp Door only. The front door is unavailable at night.

PARKING – lots of parking available on the surrounding streets. There is absolutely no parking in the driveway of 
the house. It is for the sole use of the permanent tenants. There is also a pay parking lot next to 
the apartment building at 1030 South Park Street.


BUS ROUTES – 
there are four bus routes that pass by the corner of South Park, Young and Inglis during our time line - #14 and #29 plus the University Routes #10, and #18. The #7 comes as close as the corner of South Park and South.
