Newport Fiddle and Folk Club Carols in the Substation

It was suggested by the Hobson's Bay City Council that this Folk Club take on the task of creating a community carols night. Say no more and its done! Club dynamo Michael Stewart whipped up an orchestra of over 30 players, The Newport Choir joined with the Williamstown Willin' Women to create a choir of over 45 angelic voices, a Barber Shop Chorus and a variety of superb soloists leading the carols. The evening opened and closed with a lone piper who raised the roof and brought tears to many eyes. It was my honour to MC and speak on behalf of the Club. And I am so proud to be associated with this group of big hearted people who genuinely believe in the importance of music, song and story and in teaching people how to find a voice and shine.
