FOCSLE Music’s

in-person events at The Guide Dog have been suspended since
March 2020 and for the foreseeable, due to COVID19.

Contact Jon about any future FACE-2-FACE happenings

Instead, FOCSLE Music meets online
Answers to some FAQs:  we run Singaround-style = whoever shows up performs a turn, while the rest listen in, muted
Musically, any style welcome, preferably unplugged      Audience as welcome as performers
Themes mostly arise on the fly, esp. among the more verbally playful of our number
Pre-arranged Theme-nights are only on the first meet of each month:  your compliance entirely optional
Despite the name, we don’t just sing shanties:  they’re a serendipitous part of the mix
Turn up, and leave – and/or come back – as suits your schedule
Nice things put on the record:
…love the atmosphere of FOCSLE [Music] as well as the range of styles…
…enhanced further…  …by having a theme — it really brought out the best in people
…a very enjoyable evening…  …especially when quite a few other
[online] sessions are getting a bit tired.
   Well done for playing such a big part in keeping so many people sane through these strange times
