Bermondsey Folk Club Singarounds are held on the last Sunday of the month at Shortwave Cafe, Clements Road, Bermondsey, SE16. There is a bar in the room so you won’t miss any of the singing whilst getting another pint! Shortwave Cafe is a stone’s throw from Bermondsey Jubilee making this a very easy reach for Londoners North & South of the river. Come from 6.30pm to put your name on the list. Singing & playing will start at 7pm all comers welcome. Any instrument just so long as it is not plugged in. A hat will be passed around with a suggested donation of £3/1.50 concs to be put in not taken out…
What Is a Singaround?
A Singaround consists of people, or sometimes small groups of people, taking it in turns to sing a song. If you don’t want to sing if you don’t have to; you can just come & enjoy the night.
A Singaround is informal and participative – no mics, no lights, no audience, we sing for ourselves.
What Can I Sing?
You can sing whatever you like, but as we’re a folk club many people do sing folk or folk-influenced songs. If your song has a chorus or people can join in with it, all the better!
How Do I Know When It’s My Turn To Sing?
You put your name on the list on the table when you arrive. We go through the list in order & if there is time we go through it again!
Can I Sing With Someone Else, or with a Group of People?
Yes, of course!
Can I use an Instrument?
Yes of course; unplugged naturally. Unaccompanied tunes very welcome.
Can I use Words (on a sheet or on a phone) to remind me?
Yes of course!
