The Christchurch and Nelson Folk Club's have been sharing a musical relationship for many years. Nelson musicians have performed at both the Folk Club and the Canterbury Folk Festival over the past fifty years. Many Christchurch musicians also take the opportunity to attend and perform at the Tui Festival over New Year. Nelson is also a popular destination for many in their retirement years.
As these relationships are forged and cemented in the love and sharing of music together. We're taking the opportunity to visit Acoustic Routes Nelson in September to continue this collaborative association. You are invited to join us. Make this the occasion to visit friends and family in Nelson to join us at the Yaza Cafe on Sunday night to share of our music with the Nelson folkies.
Thanks to those musicians who have already confirmed their interest in this adventure: Kristina Godfrey, Tony Hale, Colin Henderson, Jeff Bell, Eileen Reid, Russell Gillies and Judi Smitheram.
We also need supporters, you don't need to be a performer to go, audience most welcome as well. If you'd like to consider making your way to Nelson in September, please let Judi know. Options to car pool and billet may be available.
