VIRTUAL FOLK CLUB
As the Anchor Folk club is closed for the duration we are setting up a virtual Folk Club.
There are two ways of being part of this event: one as a performer: the other as a member of the audience.
To watch and listen as a member of the audience use the Virtual Anchor Folk Youtube channel via this link: YouTube.
Each week's meeting, after being streamed live to Youtube, will be available to view on Youtube as a recording, using the link above, for the following 48 hours and then deleted.
The performers will be using the popular "Zoom" video conferencing software. This can be run on computer, tablet or smart phone.
To join in as a performer you'll need a web cam, microphone and speaker(s) and to download the Zoom app/program from https://zoom.us/. When you are ready to join in, click on this link https://us04web.zoom.us/j/8637074688
To get the best sound quality when performing - follow this link for guidance:
The basic format of the Virtual Folk Club for performers will be that after joining you will be able to see, hear and message all of the other performers. When someone is performing a song the host (Chris Harris) will mute the audio from all of the others in the group, then un-mute everyone at the end.
There are features on the Zoom screen that allow performers to interact with a thumbs up or clapping sign or via the text "chat" feature.
