Our guest for Friday October 16th 2020 will be

Caitlin Smith

Welcome back to Rafters once again. It's our privilege to have Caitlin Smith as our  guest this month.  Caitlin is one of New Zealand's most talented  vocalists and a superlative jazz singer (though she might feel too modest to say that about herself). As well as being a singer she is also a great song writer, poet, and vocal coach who has spent almost two decades  helping others find their voices.  She has performed widely throughout New Zealand as well as overseas. What could be a more wonderful way for Rafters to start up again, than by having Caitlin perform for us. This night is not to be missed.  

Once again, in keeping with Government recommendations and at the Church's request, we ask that you follow 2 simple rules:
1. Upon entry every person will be required to use the NZ Government contact app to scan the QR code, or complete the NZ Government tracing form.
2. Upon entry everyone will use the hand sanitiser provided by the church.

And while we will miss you, following the Government recommendations for Level 1, we also ask that if anyone is feeling unwell, that you stay warm and snug at home.

The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guest/s. We welcome new performers. See Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there before the 8pm start.

Photos and Videos
Photos and some videos of performances will be taken during the evening and displayed on our Facebook  page. We also have a Rafters Music Club YouTube channel where we display some videos (type Rafters Music Club into YouTube search to find these videos). Please see Linda if you do not want your images publicly available.

Looking forward to seeing everyone,

Graham, Linda, Jennifer and Alistair
