The Merry Muse operates on the second Sunday of the month from 4.00pm to 7.00pm and presents a blackboard concert along with a feature act. This is a fun afternoon for those wanting to share their love of music and play, sing or recite in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. Note the blackboard is prebooked – please email me on eileennew23@gmail.com if you are interested in performing. Otherwise just get along and listen to some great music. The Blackboard begins at 4pm and the main act is at 6.15 pm.

July 10 Pierre Guenette

Pierre Guenette is an Expat French Canadian who has lived in Australia since 1982.  He will play an eclectic collection of songs ranging from Dylan and other folk classics to Swing and Country. He accompanies himself with some fine finger picking guitar. Expect to join in some choruses and sit back and enjoy a choice of songs with smooth sounds from the 1920s to the 1960s.

COVID Safe Arrangements

We will have to be operating under Covid Safe Guidelines – It is a requirement to sign in to the Club using the CBR QR code – if you are unable to do this please speak to an Irish Club staff member.

We request that you bring the correct money for paying at the door to minimise contact with money. There will be hand sanitiser at the door to use on entry.

The Monaro Folk Society has posted our Covid 19 Safety plan with a link on its main page monarofolk.org.au. I ask that you look at this to see what you as an attendee are required to pay attention to. Importantly you should not come to the Merry Muse if you are not double vaccinated (unless you have proof of a medical exemption) or any of your household are unwell or you you have been in contact with someone with Covid 19. The Merry Muse reserves the right to refuse entry as and when necessary to comply with this COVID-19 Safety Plan. You attend the venue at your own risk.

Looking forward to seeing regulars and new faces at the Merry Muse and here’s hoping that we have smooth sailing in 2021.
