ZoomFolk 3 - Christmas Special
A live interactive folk / acoustic music event, via Zoom
Hosted by Michael Braccia and Lesley Clayton of the acoustic duo, Second Chance
You can join the event as a performer or audience member (let us know which you prefer). For the Christmas event, the artists will sing both Christmas and pop / rock / folk songs.
To get involved, please send an email requesting a Zoom invitation to:
email@example.com by Sunday 31 October for performers and Sunday 14 November for audience members. To be fair to existing performers, we need to know the numbers so we can calculate how many songs each of the artists will perform.
Information for those of you new to Zoom:
Audience members can if they wish use Zoom software (free to download) and a webcam to interact with the host and performers, but they don't have to.
You can access a Zoom meeting via your internet browser (e.g. Edge or Chrome) and watch the performances just like you have watched YouTube or Facebook videos, and listen through your computer speakers. Someone actually did this during our first ZoomFolk event on 26 July. He said it was 'just like watching the telly'.
All you need is the link we will send you in an email after you have requested a 'Zoom invitation'. You then have the choice to use Zoom software or 'join from your browser'.
