On Thursday 11th June at 1300 hrs, we are giving the Ipswich Arts Association lunchtime concert at Museum Street Methodist Church. So far, this has evaded postponement and cancellation, but we’ll keep you posted.
Our rescheduled Showcase at the Milkmaid Folk Club, Bury St Edmunds will, we hope, take place on Friday 21st August at 2000 hrs. Please keep an eye on the club’s website for updates.
… and it’s only three months old! There’s not much we can say in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic, except that when it’s all over there will be gigs, and there will be new songs. It takes more than a world-wide crisis to keep Triangle down!
The good news is that our gig at the Two Sisters Arts Centre in Trimley did actually take place – slipping just under the wire before everything started to close down. We were enchanted to see our name on the posters and, as for the gig itself … what a fabulous acoustic! And the audience were wonderful. We hope to be back there in the future.
We are delighetd to announce not one, not two – but THREE upcoming gigs for you!
SATURDAY 15 JUNE: Folk at the Boat, at the Steamboat Tavern, 78 New Cut West, Ipswich, Suffolk IP2 8HW. Our time slot yet to be announced – but do come for an afternoon and evening of folky fun! 12 noon onwards.
SUNDAY 30 JUNE: Triangle are proud to be in collaboration with Suffolk Poetry Soiciety at an afternoon of words and music at Walpole Old Chapel, near Halesworth, celebrating “Bridges and Crossings”. 3pm – 5pm.
SUNDAY 8 JULY: Ipswich Music Day. Triangle will be performing with their Trianon Music Group hat on during the afternoon. Time and place to be confirmed.
Triangle are excited to launch new repertoire – and old favourites – with a concert at St Andrew’s Rushmere, part of the St Andrew’s popular Sunday Concerts season. Come and listen in the beautiful surroundings of this historic church. We believe there will be cake afterwards!
Yes, we’ve been away for a while, but we haven’t been idle! We’ve been taking out to develop new music and exciting new directions. Don’t worry – we are still us! As I (Mim) write this, winter 2018-19 is leaving in a huff, slamming the door rudely as he goes. Not to be outdone, Spring, rude girl, is kicking the door with her crocus-embroidered Docs as she barges in. So, er, it’s March, and it’s a bit windy. After a year closeted with our new material, we dared to put our heads over the parapet on air with our great friend Roger Pettitt in his “Roots and Shoots” show on 107.5 (Monday evenings live, 7pm – 9pm). And now we are setting forth again. Join us at Rushmere St Andrew church, on Mothering Sunday (31st) from 3pm. It’s Triangle live and in concert!
Our dear friend Carys is on the cusp of completing her first solo album! It was always going to happen eventually, and eventually is NOW!!
We are thrilled to have been invited to participate in the launch party at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket on 27th April at 7.30. Tickets will set you back no more than a fiver – and worth at least twice that! Follow the link above …
We are absolutely over the moon to be supporting our transatlantic chums Hungrytown at the John Peel Centre on 13th April (Maundy Thursday) – please come and join us!Contact the John Peel Centre for tickets, it’ll be a great evening!
The Spread Eagle in Ipswich is starting a new folk/acoustic session on the third Sunday afternoon of the month and we’ve somehow found ourselves involved! The beer is superb, the food is delicious and all it needs now is for you to come along, sing a song, tell a story or play a tune. The plan is for an easy-going session so we will (initially, at least) be asking people to come in, get a beer, find a seat and, if they want to, propose themselves as performers. To keep the atmosphere relaxed there will be a list (on a blackboard where everyone can see it) which will tell you when you’re on and everyone else who they are listening to. That’s the plan so far, but only time will tell …
