Levin Folk Music Club has existed for approximately 25 years and became an
Incorporated Society in 2011. (Please click on the link below to access a copy of our current constitution).
The club is run by an elected committee comprised of:
- Chairman Han Roeters
- Secretary Anne Campbell
- Treasurers Carrie Dean / Dale Webb
- Committee members Andrew Salter
Our venue is a local hall with easy access and ample parking. We decorate
the hall with wall hangings of historical and recent NZ Folk Festivals and
posters of performers. Along with the candles on the tables, these all
create a warm welcoming atmosphere.
Audience varies between 50-90 people on our main club night. The club night
format (2nd Friday each month, except January) is to have an open blackboard
concert with a broad range of acoustic/folk music for the first half, then
supper at 8.45pm, followed by a high quality guest performer or band (usually
from outside our region) for about one hour to one and a half. Blackboard items are acoustic
presentations and there is one item per blackboard slot. A sound system and sound technician is available for blackboard performers.
Acoustic Night (4th Friday each month except December) is an informal
sing-around, and there is no guest performer.
Our club nights are open to everyone and membership is optional - however
there are benefits to becoming a club member, including lower entry prices.
Come just to listen or to perform on the blackboard as well. You are
assured of a warm welcome.
