Singer’s Nights will be on the First Wednesday of each month upstairs at Roosters Brewery. Doors open at 7;00 for a 7:30pm start, Admission will be a minimum donation of £3 to cover room hire and costs. The evening is MC’d by Tom and performers are always very welcome. Please get in touch beforehand or see us when you arrive and we will add you to the list. We usually have spaces for up to twelve performers.

Guest Concerts will be at Henshaws Arts Centre Knaresborough, HG5 9AL. Tickets are available from the Ticketsource link on our Tickets page.

Covid safety procedures:  Please don’t come if you have any symptoms. The room is a large ventilated space and the ceiling fans will be in operation beforehand and in the interval. The venue asks that you use the sanitizer provided and wear masks when going to the bar. We are sure that you will consider others and respect people’s need for social distance……we need to keep each other confident and safe as we start up again.

Spotlight features. In this area we are blessed with some great musicians and we often invite performers to showcase their talents at a half hour “Spotlight” session at a singers night or be a support act for our Guest Night Concerts. [For this we can offer expenses]

Supporters. Please get in touch if you can volunteer for jobs such as setting up the room; hosting artists who need an overnight stay; or serving in the bar at Henshaw’s gigs.

Information for artists. Bookings are made on the basis of having seen or heard the performers play. We are a small Folk Club run by enthusiasts and operate on a basis of an agreed fee or 80% of door after costs. We can offer hospitality when required but regret we cannot provide hotel accommodation or fancy riders! We are currently booked until the end of 2022 and are not taking any more bookings for the moment, though there may be some opportunities for support acts.

Soundcloud We have a Soundcloud site where we occasionally showcase songs and tunes from visitors and floor singers https://soundcloud.com/user-255519996
