Popular musicians returning to Folk Club

Former Island residents Mike and Alana MacPhee have returned to perform at the Bermuda Folk Club tomorrow.

For the first time in two years the couple will appear at the club, where they were once mainstays during the 2000s.

Past performances by the MacPhees have attracted audiences of 100 or more.

The evening of music is shaping up to be memorable with a number of other well-known artists also lined up to perform, including Joy T Barnum and The Channel, Will Black and Keith White.

Bermudian Ms Barnum performed at the 2012 and 2013 Lennon Bermuda/Peace Day concerts in the Botanical Gardens.

For Mr MacPhee, tomorrow will be a reacquainting with the club. His first performance at the Bermuda Folk Club was in 2004. Over the years he collaborated with a number of Island musicians, including Ms Barnum.

Mrs MacPhee also sang at the club many times, accompanied by her husband.

“The Folk Club is a special place for us,” said Mr MacPhee shortly before they returned for a one-off show in 2013.

The evening of music, entitled Open Mic featuring Mike and Alana, will begin at 8pm at the Spanish Point Boat Club. Admission is $15, or $10 for members.

Back on stage: Alana and Mike MacPhee will perform tomorrow
