You can join the event as a performer or audience member. If you would like to appear as a performer, please let us know the songs you would like to perform (maximum of 4), to reduce the chance of duplication.

We will display the performers' names and song choices on this page. 

Please say how you want your name to be displayed.  e.g. full name, first name or maybe the name of your duo or group.

All you need is an internet connection, access to 'Zoom' on your P.C. or tablet and a webcam.

The number of songs you perform will depend on the number of performers who have applied.  We want everyone to have the opportunity to do at least one song.

We look forward to seeing you at 'ZoomFolk with Second Chance'

Best wishes,

Michael Braccia and Lesley Clayton
