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.
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!
After several false alarms, the band is finally pregnant with The Next Album! Work started in earnest yesterday and a live recording engineer has been located!Â There is even a set list!Â If all goes well, we expect to deliver in mid-2016.Â Now, we are going to do our exercises, take our vitamin supplements, have our afternoon naps and get our friends to start knitting……….
Saturday in leafy Warwickshire, and participating in a terrific little festival with Gerry Colvin, Marion Fleetwood, Red Shoes, Celandine, Fred’s House, Daniel Nestlerode … And … And … Oh, my brain’s gone numb! We were thrilled not only to perform in our own right but also to be three-fifths of the Red Shoes backing singers. As we say, “Instant backing vocals, just add beer!” Can we do it again next year, pretty, pretty please?
Piracy seems to have taken over our lives recently – not that we are complaining – but it does mean that Triangle gigs are, at the moment, rather few and far between. However, you lucky folk, you have the chance to see us live and in person at …
along with a lot of very fine bands. Go on, as they say, you’d be a knit to miss it!
Goodness, is it that long since we posted? That scourge of bands, Real Life, has been intruding again – but there has been outbreak of practices recently. and we have also started putting a set list together for the Knitted Character Folk Festival!
