PinFABlogo2lower

Due to Covid 19 Virus we are still following current Government recommendations.

During the last year we suspended our Folk Meetings. We are looking to return to live sessions over the coming months. 

For the foreseeable future sessions will be by invitation only. 

Background

Pinner Folk and Blues was originally established in 2010, in Pinner by Barry Reeve, a local  singer- songwriter, who started the club mainly as an outlet for his own material and performances. PinFAB started quite small and in the early days used the United Services Club in Love Lane as its home. Barry Reeve Moved away from the area in around 2013, and has sadly passed away. …. But PinFAB has kept going ….and grown, firstly with Viv Saunders at its helm 2013 – 2015. Since 2015, a small PinFAB management team have kept things ticking over.

We are a small group who have been meeting regularly since 2010 to share our enjoyment of acoustic music, mostly from the folk and blues traditions, but extending into show tunes and rock-and-roll and indeed anything that a performer loves – to sing, play or just listen.

We have a selection of musicians who attend and some who like to sing a Cappella, some sing and accompany themselves and we have many who like to perform as small duets or groups,  ..So Harmonica , Clarinet, Mandolin , Ukulele, Acoustic Guitar , 12 string Acoustic Guitar, Flute, Banjo and accordion music all feature from time to time … We are  an acoustic group so amplifiers and backing tracks are not part of our scene !

Music can be your own composition or a cover version. We are a pretty supportive group, so while you need to practice a wee bit ..you don’t have to be absolutely perfect !!

We would usually meet on the First and Third Wednesday of each month (Please note dates can vary depending on the availability of the room). Please remember we are operating an invitation only meeting till further notice. When we’re operating normally we’ll let you know.

When we can return to regular meetings our doors open at 7:30pm and we get started at 7:45 pm. We have to be out of the room by 10:30pm. We meet in Pinner Village Hall, Chapel Lane, Pinner, HA5 1AA.    (This is not a postal address for us, so please don’t write.)

We can’t offer you dates for your 2021 PinFAB diary … due to COVID restrictions
