Christmas bash – oh well, can’t be helped.

Its getting to be something of a tradition – having a Christmas bash with Back Porch Bluegrass from Hamilton and Whangateau Folk Club from Leigh.

A guaranteed good time. But can we hold it? Nah, or at least, under the red traffic light conditions, we’d be keeping our distances, sitting up rigid backed in our seats, and making sure we don’t breathe on each others’ cups of tea at half time. It just wouldn’t be the same, so we’d rather not.

You’ll know by now that the 2022 Auckland Folk Festival is off for much the same reasons.

Let’s be hopeful that next year will be better.
