Christmas Party and Folk Club Concert featuring Maureen O’Brien
December 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pmDonation $15
As has been our tradition over recent years we invite you to join us as we combine with the Newcastle Peoples Chorus to celebrate Christmas and another great year in the life of the Folk Club.
Bring a small donation or plate to share as we party from 6pm to 7pm before the Peoples Chorus begin the concert performance featuring Maureen O’Brien.
Maureen O’Brien stands alone as one of Newcastle’s outstanding “Impresarios”.
The Folk Club invites you to share an evening with Maureen as she performs from her enormous repertoire. With 6 CD’s to her credit covering Swing, Blues, Country and Folk it is hard to put any boundaries around Maureen’s talent as identified in Don Bannister’s review of her CD “Borderless” in 2008:
The title “Borderless” suggests Maureen’s inability or refusal to be boxed into a musical genre. Inability or refusal as in a butterfly in a box, once boxed its true value is lost. The combination of Maureen’s singing, and Robbie Long’s brilliant guitar work evokes the feeling of a free-floating spirit flitting from musical note to musical note, sometimes a butterfly, sometimes a hummingbird.
