About the Flash Folk Gatherings North East Facebook Group:
(Info as of 7 July 2013 – please check Facebook for any updates)

“The Group has been created with a view to encouraging live “Flash” acoustic folk events at different locations yet to be detailed throughout the North East. These will be mainly at weekends, outdoor when possible during the summer months. It is hoped that we may extend them to the winter months as well, though they will obviously need to be indoors.

Feel free to view, and please join if you are interested in being involved, or taking part in up and coming events, either as a performer, or as audience.

If you are interested in running a workshop of any kind during, and at an event, please message, either Jack Burness, or Mike Orchard, directly, and we will get back to you to discuss it in detail.

Joining the group will help keep you informed as to progress, and future events as they are arranged.

If you know of anyone who is interested in the group, but not on Facebook, they may still register with us via email to:

http://scr.im/flashfolkne/ (follow link to see spam protected email address)

Please note that this group is not a sales platform for any kind of sale of goods from anyone. All sale’s post will be quickly removed from the group’s timeline, as may the individual responsible for it.

Equally the group timeline is not to be used to advertise any other venues, or events. To be absolutely fair there will be no exceptions.

Existing members may invite, or add new members to the group, but for security reasons the groups administrators are ultimately responsible for the groups membership.

Please note that no fees, or charges will be paid to, or accepted by anyone, for any performances, or appearances, at or in association with, or the planning, and organisation of any Flash Folk Events. There will be no exceptions to this.”

Group Moderators: Jack B. Burness and Mike Orchard

  2. There was a good turn-out of ukers at the Third Flash Folk Gathering at Ouseburn Farm. We didn’t quite out-number the other instruments but it was a close run thing and we more than made up for it with enthusiasm!

    As well as the players, a couple of people turned up in shy-mode minus instruments. Two more woke up that morning with a bad attack of Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome, stopped-off at Omega Music in Brampton (not exactly on the way between Washington and Byker!) and arrived just as we were packing up.
