July Club Night, Monday, 25 July, 7pm. $10

Whangateau Folk Radio Hour

It’s time for club night! Next Monday, July 25th is our monthly club meeting. We will have floor singers in the first half, and we’ve already had a few goodies sign up, so I’m excited about that. If you would like to perform in the first half, reply to this message or email jenine@torkington.com and I’ll get you on the list.

In the second half, Nat and I will be hosting the Whangateau Folk Radio Hour, an old-time variety hour featuring two musicians with interesting stories to tell. This month we have two young artists who will talk about their song writing and performing styles, and will give you a few examples of their work. We’ll also perform a few songs with them. Our featured artists are Sam Rhodes (age 19) of Rhode Works and You, Me, Everybody, and Aura Torkington (age 20) who is, yes, our daughter and has been performing on stage since the age of 7 and is now writing and performing their own material with over 100,000 followers on TikTok and almost 25,000 on Instagram.

Doors open at 6:45 for a 7pm start! $10, door sales only, no prebookings.

Covid-y stuff: we’d love it if you wore a mask but it isn’t required. If you have ANY cold or flu symptoms, please stay home! Covid cases are up, protect yourself, protect your community.

We will be livestreaming the audio from the show to Facebook and hopefully YouTube.
