Typically for a story involving John Harrison, It all started with a harmonica. He was travelling back on a train and began playing. Fellow passengers enjoyed it, and the idea for a Folk Club in Bonn was born.
Nine years later John’s Club has grown and grown, shedding venues like a snake sheds its skin as each was outgrown.
On Friday (1 March) Folk Club Bonn will proudly celebrate its 100th evening, and you can not only come and listen – you can even play too! There will be two stage areas at Dotty’s Sports Bar, allowing for quick turn-arounds so that everyone can take part. The only rules are 1) No amplification and 2) Each act has only 3 minutes. So please come along and join in.
3songsbonn has spent many a happy evening taking pictures at the Folk Club, and to mark the occasion has produced a limited edition 24-page colour booklet celebrating many of the participants – old and new. The booklet will be available at Dotty’s on Friday for 10 Euros. (it was no easy task to choose images from the hundreds available!)
Hope to see a packed house at Dotty’s Sports Bar then – Friday, March 1 from 7pm sharp and don’t forget to bring a song! Details HERE
