Folk club to celebrate 20 years

The Troubadour Folk Club will celebrate its 20th anniversary on May 4 by holding a fundraiser concert for the Central Coast Bipolar and Schizophrenic Fellowship.

"As the 20th century drew to a close, the Troubadour Folk and Acoustic Music Club was established in Woy Woy to provide an opportunity for performers and folk music lovers on the Central Coast to hear and play great music," said club president Mr Michael Fine.

"It's a magic place, where the audience suddenly becomes the performers, where everyone joins in the chorus and many of the audience know all the words.

"Now, it's time to celebrate 20 years of this magic," he said.

On the day, founding members of the club will be returning to Woy Woy to entertain and be entertained by current club members and other local performers in what Mr Fine said promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and celebration.

"The Troubadour has grown over the past 20 years and, in the past 12 months, has needed to move from its traditional home in the Woy Woy CWA Hall to find a larger venue to accommodate the ever-increasing audience.

"Now well established in the fabulous St Luke's Hall, the club is widely regarded as one of the most successful folk clubs in Australia.

"Performers come to the Central Coast from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland and from all points across Australia to play, sing and recite in front of the famous Troubadour audience," Mr Fine said.

"Local performers have always enjoyed a warm welcome at the Troubadour and will be prominent in the festivities on May 4.

"So too will some of the long-standing acts that have developed through the Troubadour, great groups established by founding members of the club, such as The Usual Suspects and The Blues Angels, will be performing alongside long time favourites such as Warren Targett and Linda Campbell.

"There will be plenty of music from current members and local performers.

The 20th anniversary fundraiser concert will commence from 7pm in the hall of St Luke's Church Woy Woy.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Central Coast Bipolar and Schizophrenic Fellowship.
