Singers - Musicians - Poets

Non Guest nights were held in the Folk Bar on the 1st Thursday of every month and in the Bothal Suite on the 3rd Thursday of every month, commencing 20:30 (that's half past eight in old money!). The Forward Diary. was a comprehensive listing of upcoming events at the club. Everyone is/was invited to come along and perform or just listen. All styles and abilities welcomed. There is/was a mixture of residents and visitors performing everything from traditional folk to contemporary music, blues, classics, country and poetry.

We always started at 8:30 prompt - latecomers may be disappointed...

On 20th December 2007 (jiva's last night in charge) we had 17 performers, 30 songs and tunes and poems as well as a speech or two and a presentation... Read all about it in the 20th December 2007 photo gallery and review.

days to the next one was automatically calculated and presented in bold graphical type face.

Special Guest Nights

Held in either the Folk Bar or Bothal Suite, and sometimes in the Main Hall - individual dates as announced, so check our Forward Diary often.

Thursday 15th November was another special night for the Club - almost at the end of jiva's fourth year running the club, special guest Allan Taylor (with support slot by jiva) gave a truly wonderful performance to a very appreciative audience... Read all about it in the 15th November 2007 review.

We decided to discontinue our spotlight feature during 2007, so it was only fitting that our final spotlight on 21st December 2006 featured jiva who have been running the club since February 2004. We had 22 songs and tunes in all! Read all about it in the 21st December 2007 photo gallery and review, where you can also listen to soundbites of performers.
