On Friday my folk club is meeting for the 3rd time this year - Feb went well, March was cancelled (4th Sat) & in October we had our 30th birthday in a small bowling club as our Council hall is still closed. We're in the bowling club again for our final concert with an act that are having their first live gig since lockdown. They are full time folkies & have been presenting facebook/youtube concerts & managing with donations. We normally have 10 concerts & I hope to book the 2020 acts again next year.

My other club met in March (1st Friday) & our interstate guest reported his next 2 festivals in his state had been cancelled. 2 performers in the audiences has also lost 2 festivals in our state, making 6 cancelled festivals in the following couple of months.

Then everything got cancelled.

Our 30th birthday looked a bit odd, with PA (we are a famous acoustic venue!) & our equally famous singing audience masked up & were either humming or singing softly under their masks.
