Despite the weather, the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society is going ahead with its weekly Folk Night at The Ship Wednesday.

Flutist Michelle Brophy and Rob Brown, who plays the uilleann pipes, will hold a traditional music session, with an impressive repertoire of songs from Newfoundland and Ireland. Musicians are welcomed to join in.

Next week will see Brianna Gosse performing,  while Jan. 22 will feature Craig Young and Duane Andrews.  

Folk Night, which happens every Wednesday at 9 p.m., sees featured performers presenting two sets of music, with an open mike and prizes during the intermission.

The last Wednesday of the month is always a traditional session hosted by an experienced player or two, with no sound system or stage performance, and audience participation encouraged.  

Folk Night is one of the city's longest-running regular music events, having been established more than 30 years ago. It presents a variety of performers, in areas like music, storytelling and dance.   Cover charge is $5.
