Posts Tagged ‘Dome Cafe’

When I was a teenager in Africa (mid-sixties) I don’t know why but our house – more specifically, our front lawn was the meeting place…

Our crowd used to sit in a circle, singing songs until Mum came out and reminded us we had neighbors.

We sang songs by James Taylor; Bread; Simon & Garfunkle; Joan Baez; Mamas & the Papas; Joni Mitchell; Peter, Paul & Mary…

Everywhere I lived I could always find a folk club except when I moved up to the Northern Suburbs in 1985.

So, ever resourceful, I put an ad in the local community paper and the Wanneroo Folk Club was born.

Years later, it’s still going strong although, I must admit I haven’t been for years – next one’s in June (Friday 13th).  Maybe we’ll see you there!

However in 1984, I did make my first 16 mm film about the Hills Folk Club in Kalamunda.  If you have 6 minutes to spare and want an 80’s hair reminder, watch my doco ‘Some Folks Folk’.

Still: ‘Some Folks Folk’ – 1984

Last night hubby and I went to a Monday Supper Club  at the Dome Cafe in Maylands, to hear my friend Glen Phillips  &  John Ryan  read their poetry.

The food was good and music provided firstly by (organiser) Jane Cornes’ Trio then by the outstanding Ken Nicols  formally of  Steeleye Span.

Must admit the night brought out the inner Folk-ie in me once again…
