CARRY ON STREAMIN
CARRY ON STREAMIN ... is intended to raise money for EFC's Paddy Bort Fund (see below). We hope to publish this on-line magazine fortnightly and it will carry videos donated by a range of folk acts, news-ie snippets from 'wherever' (no borders here!), perhaps album reviews, interviews and anything else we feel like including. If you want to send us some content - then please do so, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
There's also of course(!) a PayPal button to so you donate whatever sums you like to the cause.
THE PADDY BORT FUND
In February 2017 EFC's widely respected chair, Eberhardt "Paddy" Bort died suddenly. The club ran a fund raising concert in Paddy's memory in June 2017 and created the Paddy Bort Fund (PBF) from the concert's profits. The sole intention of the PBF is to provide financial support to professional folk performers who may be in financial difficulties for whatever reason.
The fund however is small and we have distributed some £2 000 since its creation. The COVID19 crisis means that this fund will become more necessary as time passes. At the time of writing (late May 2020) we do not believe that the current lockdown will end soon for concert venues, pubs and clubs. Many professional folk musicians are going to be severely hit as a result. Organisations who have a vested interest in professional folk performers need to support those who give us all so much pleasure in normal times. Therefore, we have set out to raise £10 000 (or more).
